Action For Education (AFE) is an independent, grassroots organisation founded in the UK and Greece in 2017 to develop projects that build pathways back into education for displaced communities. Through a unique methodology developed over the last year and half, we challenge traditional methods of how emergency education can be carried out in humanitarian contexts.
AFE strives to demonstrate the power of grassroots actions and how civil society can inspire change. The core team has extensive experience working in this specific humanitarian educational context having developed and managed Refugee Education Chios for over two years.
More recently, we've also commenced operations in Samos, where we run an education centre for youth aged 18 - 23 and an early childhood space for 2 - 7 year olds. We additionally run the education arm of The Halcyon Days Centre for women in Athens, in collaboration with Action for Women.
