English Teacher/Volunteer Needed for Children & Adult Refugees

Project Hope 4 Kids (PH4K) (projecthope4kids.org) is an American, Non-Governmental Organisation, providing non-formal education(NFE) to refugees (children and adults) in Ioannina, Greece. Moreover, we provide sport, art therapy, and crafts activities for our children. We are a small grass-roots organization dedicated to helping refugees.

It is our mission to deliver non-formal education consisting of English, Greek and Mathematics classes to children aged 3 to 18. When needed, and with the aim to empower parents and therefore take away the burden of translation for children, we also provide English classes to adults. Next to that, we hold a high regard and belief for the importance of the arts especially in children lives.

With our classes we aim to provide the children a safe place where they can learn and play, where they do not need to experience feelings of fear and anxiety, but feelings of creativity, safety and achievement. The art and sport workshops are to provide a place where they can make new friends, and create arts and use their imaginations which can be both healing and extremely educational as well.

PH4K has been working in Greece since June 2016.   Currently, we work in 4 sites in Ioannina, Greece serving approximately 150 families.
