Since spring 2020 our coordinator Yahia has been building a project in Athens, to help all of our community volunteers with the transition when they move on from the island.
Through a lot of hard work, Yahia has created a network in the city to help with everything from translations to finding accommodation and jobs, to guiding people through the confusing beurocracy they face there.
He has gathered a mass of knowledge to help with any questions people may have and a database of contacts so that he can find the answers he doesn’t already know.
He also arranges regular gatherings, where our volunteers come together. This is not only an opportunity to enjoy a nice day, but also helps people to really feel that they are still part of the community, something easy to forget in a massive city like Athens!
