A Drop in the Ocean is a Norwegian NGO. It was founded in September 2015, and has since then organised almost 6000 volunteers to go to Greece, where the need for help is high. Our purpose is to provide immediate and direct aid to refugees, by coordinating volunteers to travel to our destinations in Greece. Aid workers assist with providing services and activities in the camps and in our communitycentres. The tasks are constantly changing, depending on the needs of the various destinations. We currently operate in four locations around Greece, running projects and services both in and around refugee camps.

Volunteers with teaching experience are needed in three of our sites across Greece: Samos, Lesvos and Skaramagas camp near Athens. Ideally you will be able to commit for at least 6 weeks. You will be responsible for the instruction and facilitation of our daily afternoon English classes to children and adults, dependent on the location.
Tasks and responsibilities:
After 2 weeks as a volunteer you will be eligible to apply for a stipend to cover living costs, renewable with every 4 week commitment thereafter. Volunteers are responsible for organising their own transport and accommodation.
