The project aims to support students who:

  • Are affected by the effects of the economic crisis and the pandemic or have an immigrant background.
  • Face problems of social exclusion or discontinuity in their lives due to forced relocation.
  • Are at high risk of becoming functionally illiterate or at high risk of dropping out of school.

In the school year 2021-2022 the project is implemented in 170 school units (Pre-Primary Schools, Primary Schools, Gymnasiums, Lyceums and Technical and Vocational Education and Training Schools) and approximately 28.000 students participate.

Among other things, the following actions are offered:

  • Free supportive teaching and creative activity programs for students and parents, in the morning and afternoon.
  • Teaching the Greek language in the morning and afternoon time for students and parents with an immigrant biography.
  • Additional psychosocial support services for students and parents, through the creation and operation of Information and Psychosocial Support Centers.
  • Supply technological school equipment and educational tools/ material.
