“My name is Sidad. I was born in Sinjar, Iraq. My family arrived in Greece and we are now living at the accommodation center for migrants and refugees in Drama, northern Greece.
I enjoy going to school and my favorite subject is English but I also want to keep learning Greek; I really like the Greek language. When I grow up, I want to be an interpreter.
I don’t have any Greek friends yet. But we go to school together every day and play ball during the breaks.”
IOM Greece, with support from the European Commission’s Civil Protection & Humanitarian Aid Operations Office, is addressing the need for safe and dignified living conditions for migrants and refugees in Greece; it ensures the transportation of pupils from the Accommodation Centers to schools and equips them with school kits including notebooks, pens, pencils and other necessary school material.
