ΑΛΛΑΖΟΥΜΕ ΤΟ ΑΦΗΓΗΜΑ ΓΥΡΩ ΑΠΟ ΤΟ ΠΡΟΣΦΥΓΙΚΟ

Η Second Tree επιχειρεί να αλλάξει τον τρόπο με τον οποίο η κοινωνία βλέπει τους πρόσφυγες και τον τρόπο με τον οποίο οι ίδιοι βλέπουν την κοινωνία και τον εαυτό τους. 

Το έργο μας στηρίζεται σε μια προσέγγιση που έρχεται να αντιμετωπίσει το στερεότυπο ότι οι πρόσφυγες είναι κακοποιοί, ήρωες ή απελπισμένα θύματα – και να προωθήσει την πραγματικότητα ότι οι πρόσφυγες είναι απλώς ΑΝΘΡΩΠΟΙ.  

Το μοντέλο μας εφαρμόζεται σε όλες τις δραστηριότητές μας:

Μέσω της ηγεσίας σκέψης (thought leadership) και της κατάρτισης που αμφισβητεί τα αφηγήματα που έχουν τους πρόσφυγες ως θύματα.

Με τους Πρόσφυγες

Μέσω προγραμμάτων γλωσσομάθειας, ευημερίας των νέων, και ένταξης που βγάζουν τους πρόσφυγες από τις δομές και τους φέρνουν κοντά στην τοπική ζωή

ΕΙΜΑΣΤΕ Η SECOND TREE

Η Second Tree είναι ένας εθελοντικός, ανθρωπιστικός οργανισμός βάσης που εργάζεται σε προσφυγικές δομές στη Βόρεια Ελλάδα. Το έργο μας στηρίζεται σε ένα βασικό ήθος: να αντιμετωπίζουμε τους πρόσφυγες ως τους ανθρώπους που είναι και να ξεπερνάμε τα στερεότυπα της θυματοποίησης και ρομαντικοποίησης.

  • Exciting news from Ioannina, Greece! We gathered with our community to celebrate the successes of the Translation of Cultural Language (TOCL) project! Along with our partners, we’ve created a curriculum tailored for migrant students, helping teachers promote cultural understanding in the classroom. 

The curriculum combines language & culture, creating a deeper connection to host countries for migrant language learners. Second Tree’s section laid out essential teaching principles for teaching migrant students in a collaborative, anti-biased learning space rooted in trust and mutual respect! 🙌

Since the volunteers’ training in Athens in May 2023, Second Tree has trained 77 teachers across 5 countries!🌍 Plus, the TOCL curriculum influenced classes taught to 80 students enrolled in our Scouts programmes.

Want to learn more about TOCL? Visit the TOCL website (link in bio) for details! Stay tuned as we gear up to launch the curriculum online!

  • Therese joined our team back in October and couldn’t wait to get started. Known for her boundless energy & enthusiasm, becoming an ESL teacher with Second Tree was everything she had hoped for, but not everything she’d expected!⁠
⁠
“Something that surprised me about the work culture here is the amount of responsibility you are given within days of arriving,” she reflects. “I was taken aback at first, but it has to do with the trust & high expectations towards everyone who comes here. Do you have an idea? Fire away. How could this be done in a better way? Tell us, have a go at writing a proposal yourself. Being able to drive ideas forward & take ownership feels intimidating, but it’s so rewarding!”⁠
⁠
She quickly became known to our students as Teacher Tessera - (“four” in Greek). As for teaching English, Therese knows it can be horrifying speaking a new language. “What I’ve enjoyed the most about teaching in Scouts is seeing that mental block disappear. Given the room to think and speak, you can see how they quickly make up their mind to give it a shot. And all of sudden, you have a boy who has never uttered a single word answering 'The population of Germany is 83 million'. Gimme five, Abdul, that’s my Scout!”⁠
⁠
Therese may be “Teacher Four” to her class, but she’s a 10/10 teacher to us! 🧑‍🏫⁠
⁠
Distributing responsibility among even our newest volunteers allows Second Tree to not only invest in our people, but also in their big ideas. If you enjoy a challenge, Second Tree could be the place for you! Send in your application today through the link in our bio.
