Meet Hidar, a 12-year-old boy from Damascus, Syria currently living in an Accommodation Centre for Refugees in Greece. He started going to school again and cannot wait to learn new things! His mother was a teacher in Damascus. Thanks to funding from the European Commission, IOM Greece is ensuring the safe transportation of pupils from the Accommodation Centers to schools and has equipped them with school kits, notebooks, pens, pencils and other necessary school material. The education program is part of the “Multi-sectoral assistance to and protection of migrants and refugees stranded in Greece” scheme.
