In brief

Lighthouse Relief runs a pilot programme, starting in September 2018, offering daily activities in a refugee camp in Greece, using the power of football and tennis to build team spirit, to create mentorship building capacities, to partner with local Greek sports associations; furthermore, instructors are going to train the Resident Volunteers from Ritsona camp, who would assist them – as translators – and potentially also help them acquire a new vocation or skill which could possibly assist them in the future.

Problem to be tackled

Lighthouse Relief’s objective specifically with this project is to continue and advance on-going psychosocial support by providing a structured opportunity for peer to peer support, social interaction, learning and play to children and youth living in the Ritsona camp.
