On Thursday 18 May, together with Mosaik, we are launching a one month campaign to raise A$25,000 dollars to meet the salaries of qualified teachers who run regular weekly classes for more than 700 refugees at the Mosaik Support Center in Lesvos, Greece.
We need just 1000 donations of $25 to meet the costs of the fully qualified teaching staff for a whole year!
Mosaik runs entirely on donations and they need our help to ensure the ongoing operation of the Center. Hundreds of the world's most vulnerable people rely on Mosaik for educational, social, psychological and legal support.
Built on principles of solidarity, integration and empowerment, Mosaik offers sustainable ways to empower refugees with dignity. Over 700 students from refugee camps and community based housing centres across the island attend classes at Mosaik each week. The ages range from 4 to 89 years old. Around 700 refugees regularly attend classes in languages, art, music and IT. The language courses are taught by qualified, paid teachers to ensure refugees receive the level of education afforded to the rest of the community.
$25 is all it takes to ensure the doors stay open for another year!
