Tolou is a non-profit association with the goal of providing access to education and housing, as well as to support personal development.
In the new camp on Lesvos, they have built up a team of eleven voluntary afghan teachers, who design and lead lessons depending on their own capabilities. More than 200 students on Lesvos alone benefit from this service every day.
However, several hundred refugees also live in Mytilene, which is why Tolou is also establishing a classroom in this town, where around 100 students have the opportunity to learn English, French, Greek as well as painting.
In order to further ensure psychological stability for its participants, Tolou has also rented two apartments in Athens to accommodate people and provide them with a safe space while they can complete administrative procedures and have the opportunity to further pursue professional or family matters.
