Second Tree is a community-led, volunteer-run, grassroots NGO that supports, teaches and learns with refugees across Northern Greece. Our founders were volunteers that independently responded to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in early 2016. They met in Katsikas Refugee Camp and left their old lives to build an organisation that first and foremost treats refugees like people.
Since then, our team of volunteers has grown and we have reached hundreds of refugees through our programs. We work in two camps reaching approximately 2,500 people.
OUR WORK HAS EVOLVED IN THREE KEY AREAS:
LANGUAGE LEARNING Through English and Greek classes delivered by qualified teachers. Both programs are approved by the Greek Ministry of Education.
YOUTH WELL-BEING Through our Scouts program that takes children out of the camp and into local community.
INTEGRATION of refugees into local life through our community-building activities.
