Empowering refugees to plant second chances

WHAT WE DO

We give refugees and asylum seekers across Northern Greece the opportunity to develop urgent skills needed for life in Europe. We do this through educational activities in three key areas:

 

Through English and Greek classes delivered by qualified teachers and tailored to the needs of refugee adults and children.

Through our community-engagement activities that give refugees and locals the chance to meet.

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 grassroots humanitarian organisation that works in refugee camps in Northern Greece. Our ethos is to treat refugees like people and move past stereotypes of victimisation and romanticisation. Our team consists of 11 team members on the ground, and a community of volunteers who support us from home.
