    Help to Help

     

    ECHO100PLUS is a charity which has worked in Greece since 2015. On the island of Leros, they created an educational and recreational centre for adult refugees grounded in a camp for several months.


    In this centre, refugees can find a wide range of services and classes built to facilitate their assimilation in Greece and in other European countries. It also acts as a convivial space to learn and interact with committed volunteers and the local community.

    With the help of 6 local teachers, 10-12 international volunteers and 6-8 refugee volunteers, the centre currently runs more than 20 different classes/activities per week.

    About 700 refugees are registered at the centre and on average, about 200 people attend classes or activities every day.

    MigrENS

     

    Help refugees to continue their education

     

    MigrENS is a French non for profit organisation created in 2015 by students from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris. They help refugees to resume their academic studies in France.

     

    Every year, about 35 refugees are invited by MigrENS to attend French classes at ENS, join a student community and prepare for French language exams to apply to university.

     

    Refugee students are taught french 10 hours per week by trained students. They also receive personal and academic support, are welcome to join some ENS classes (IT, English..) and use its facilities. They participate in cultural and artistic activities inside and outside the school in order to immerse themselves in the French society. In creating a welcoming environment, MigrENS helps refugees to get their lives back with dignity.

  • About us

    Supporting migrants and refugees in Europe

    How do we work

    Raise awareness and act

    Relay for Refugees was founded in 2016 by a group of volunteers dedicated to helping refugees in Europe. Our aim is to address the most urgent needs and fund education programs, sporting or cultural initiatives. We identify a small number of reliable, efficient and dedicated non-for-profit organisations which work with refugees. We raise funds and awareness to support them and get directly involved where needed.

    To optimise the scope of our action in Greece, we collaborate with our partners on the ground and our team provides operational support and advice. Our work has impacted hundreds of refugees in Greece and France. Men and women who find new, considerate communities which can help rebuild their lives. Men and women who can study again and hope for a better future.
