Action for Education


Action for Education (AFE) is an independent, grassroots organisation founded in Greece in 2018. We develop projects that build pathways back into education for displaced communities. Building on our experience running non-formal refugee education projects, we seek to provide new and innovative responses for teaching and supporting educational services in crisis situations.

Action for Education is committed to providing safe spaces for children, teenagers, women and youth. Through careful guidance in learning social interactions and through common activities, we support individuals as they continue to grow, develop and build a better future.


One of the locations in which we currently operate is Chios, where we provide educational services to refugees for whom this right is otherwise denied. Refugees on Chios face major obstacles in accessing basic integration services in Greece. AFE are looking for volunteers who can guide and accompany clients through various administrative procedures on Chios. Previous experience in social work (preferably Greece) is highly desirable.

Please note that this role is offered on a voluntary basis (unpaid) and the minimum time commitment for this position is two months.
