The international School of Peace for children and adults on Lesvos offers the people in the camp the opportunity to take English courses and other school subjects. In addition, the School of Peace offers its younger students a special curriculum for adolescents, where they have the opportunity to learn everyday skills and abilities.
The goal is to develop the students’ self-confidence, academic performance and social skills. They are taught by teachers who are also refugees living in the camp. The school also promotes their experience, creativity and demonstrates self-confidence within the community. This serves as the main goal of the School of Peace: to strengthen people’s self-confidence and assertiveness, to inspire them and to help them shape their lives in a positive way.
Since the beginning in 2017, over 5000 students have attended courses of the School of Peace.
