"I love school, efcharisto!” says 7-year-old Roham from Tehran, Iran, moments before taking the bus to the primary school. "No, I don't get tired in school, when I get back here I do my homework straight away", he delightfully affirms. Learning Greek is his favourite course. "Efcharisto!” he repeats in an impeccable accent, after having his photo taken at the Open Accommodation Centre for Refugees.
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), thanks to European Commission funding, 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.
Roham is one of the beneficiaries of the education program, part of the “Multi-sectoral assistance to and protection of migrants and refugees stranded in Greece” scheme.
