Independent Group of Volunteers Set up a School for Children Refugees and Migrants in Idomeni

An independent group of volunteers at Idomeni set up a school for children refugees and migrants.
The sign outside the big tent set up by volunteers from different countries reads “Idomeni cultural centre” and the lessons are held every day. The teachers are refugees that have studied maths or science or languages.
According to the program, breakfast is served at 9 am, followed by Math lessons, Kurdish and Arabic language lessons while there are also courses for adults.
On their part, the volunteers try to teach the children languages such as English and German that will need in their new lives.
“Many of the children do not know how to write or read due to the war. There are 11 or 12-year-old children that have never been to a school,” Daniel, one of the volunteers, said to ANA-MPA. “We need paper, pencils and books in the Arabic language,” because the number of the children increases day after day, he added.
