Noi cambiamo la Narrazione sui profughi

A Second Tree c’impegniamo per cambiare il modo in cui la società vede i profughi e come i profughi vedono la società e loro stessi.

Il nostro lavoro si basa su un approccio che punta a contrastare gli stereotipi che rappresentano i profughi come criminali, eroi o vittime indifese; sosteniamo e promuoviamo, invece, la realtà, ossia che i profughi sono semplicemente PERSONE.

Il nostro modello si applica a tutte le nostre attività:

Attraverso un modello di leadership del pensiero e una formazione che respinge la narrazione dei profughi come vittime

Con i profughi

Attraverso i corsi linguistici, le attività per il benessere dei giovani e i progetti che portano i profughi fuori dal campo e permettono loro di integrarsi nella vita locale

Noi siamo Second Tree

Second Tree è un’organizzazione umanitaria composta da volontari che lavorano con i profughi nei campi del Nord della Grecia. 

Il nostro lavoro si regge su un principio fondamentale: trattare i profughi come persone e superare così gli stereotipi che li rendono vittime o eroi romantici.

  • 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.
