3 Participating countries:
The increase of migration and refugee flows in our country is an issue which is of great concern both to the Greek State and the society. Moreover, the fact that Greece is in social and economic crisis raises concerns for the present and the future of migrant populations and particularly regarding vulnerable groups such as children, elder people and single mothers.
Under this framework KEAN developed the proposed project“I DO 4EU” which will
give the opportunity of reception, hosting and training of two (2) young people to
offer their voluntary services in different fields. Through the existing activities of the organization this project will fill the gap created by the fragmentary information on access to food services, sheltering, health and the lack of First Reception services.
The project aims to contribute significantly to the improvement of the living conditions of migrant population who is arriving in Athens and to the defending of their fundamental rights. Therefore 2 volunteers will be engaged in activities which
will help newly arrived immigrants in Greece under the instructions and guidance of the experienced team of KEAN.
