Empowering refugees to plant second chances

WHAT WE DO

We believe that it is never too late to take action and work towards making a positive difference in the world. We strive to empower refugees with the skills needed to engage in their new community by providing them with access to information, services, and opportunities that strengthen their capacities and ensure that their rights are realised. We work in three main areas:

Through English and Greek classes delivered by qualified teachers and tailored to the special needs of adult and children refugees.

Through our community-engagement activities, such as language cafes with University students, sports day and workshops. 

Through our unique Scouts program that takes children out of the camp and into local community.

THE BEST TIME TO PLANT A TREE WAS TWENTY YEARS AGO, THE SECOND BEST TIME IS NOW.

Who We Are

Second Tree is a non-profit and non-governmental organization founded by a group of independent volunteers who were working alongside refugees in the Katsikas camp in Northern Greece in 2016. We founded Second Tree to express, foster and advocate for the values of solidarity and intercultural dialogue we shared while working in Katsikas.
