OUR PARTNERS

Second Tree has the privilege of partnering with respected organizations from all over the world. Find out how we are working together to make a difference.

United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) – UNHCR funded two rounds of our Twinning project and is currently funding our Greek language program for adults. They also provide weekly transportation for our Youth Scouts program and supported our English language program through the purchase of the Cambridge Empower course books for our students and teachers.

Oxfam – Second Tree supported Oxfam in the evacuation of the Katsikas refugee camp in December 2016, through logistics and community management. Second Tree then operated in the Oxfam-managed accommodation for refugees, where we provided non-formal education, transportation, coverage of dental and optical needs, and distribution of non-food items. This fruitful working relationship was certified in writing in June 2017. Oxfam is no longer operational in the region.
Terre des Hommes (TDH) – Through a call for proposals, Second Tree partnered with TDH, who funded and supported our English language program until the end of February 2018 in four different sites (the Community Centre for Urban Population, Agia Eleni, Konitsa and Doliana refugee camps). We currently provide English and Greek classes, run a kindergarten and support Arabic classes taught by a Syrian teacher, in the Community Centre operated by TDH.
InterSOS – Through our participation in their call for proposals, we have won three different grants: two rounds of the Twinning project and the Greek language program. We also deliver our English classes at sites managed by them.
University of Ioannina – We have worked in collaboration with the University since January 2017 in the delivery of English classes to children, and through our Twinning and Scouts programs. In March 2018 we strengthened this collaboration, through the incorporation of the University’s teachers and a leading professor in the field in our proposal for the provision of Greek language classes to adults. The proposal was successful and Second Tree is now continuing the University of Ioannina’s education program for refugees in Ioannina and in the Agia Eleni refugee camp.
Arsis – In January 2017, Second Tree and Arsis signed an MoU, providing us access to sites under their management; this collaboration involved the provision of non-formal educational activities for children and adults in the form of English classes, access to dental and optical care and transportation. The most recent MoU, signed April 2018, grants us access to Katsikas Camp and the Safe Zone for Unaccompanied Minors in Agia Eleni, to provide English classes. Arsis supports us by ensuring access to the camp; covering staff transportation, procurement of resources needed to deliver our classes, including course books, stationary and furniture; and the provision of a space and support in delivery, as needed.

Il Raggio – An Italian NGO, who covered bureaucratic and administrative costs in our first year of operation. They provided invaluable support, helping us through the bureaucratic steps of setting up the NGO, as well as providing access to knowledge resources by including us in their consortium of NGOs (COESA), whose members have supported us with proposal-writing and statutes.
