Where we work:
LESVOS, GREECE: While working towards opening our own learning center, we currently partner with other organizations to teach children and adults English. The focus is on literacy, numeracy, and the arts. We are building relationships with refugees in the neighboring refugee camp, assessing educational needs, and responding as we can.
GERMANY: We recruit teachers for the Justice Project, an organization dedicated to supporting women rescued out of sexual trafficking and exploitation. This project helps women with life skills acquisition, literacy, numeracy, and job readiness.
ETHIOPIA: We partner with Brook Hill Development Organization, a local NGO working in Koshe—the area of Addis built up around the city dump. Together we train local volunteers to implement the Open Schools Worldwide program, an educational intervention designed to lift children with significant gaps in their education and living in the most extreme poverty to a grade 3 standard in literacy and numeracy. The program facilitates healing through trauma-informed practices and loving relationships.
And on our horizon: Mafraq, Jordan; Belgrade, Serbia; and Northern Italy.
