Refugee Education Chios has been running every day on Chios for over 2 and half year. Despite the ever-changing contours of the political landscape, the wide-scale mistreatment of asylum-seekers on the Aegean islands is a sad constant.
The Refugee Education Chios project, run by Action for Education, challenges what is unfortunately mainstream behaviour and policy towards refugees.
In our spaces, there is optimism, activity, determination, learning and fun.
This video is about that project, and about our campaign to save Refugee Education Chios for 2019.
We are sadly in the position of not having the funds to continue next year. But we are determined to stay, based on the genuine and acute need of the community here.
This narration of this video outlines the situation and the work of project to change this. Take a listen, watch and please share.
You can donate to the Action for Education Campaign through this link. All donations are Gift Aid-able.
Stay tuned as I post and write more detailed updates on the campaign, our project and work in Chios and Greece.
