Sindos Community Center

We are happy to announce our new project in Sindos!

As of April 2018 Be a Robin, in collaboration with IsraAID and Three Peas, is in charge of the Sindos Community Center in the outskirts of Thessaloniki.

 

 

The Community Centre (CC) serves the displaced population of Sindos (over 300 people) as well as the local population. Daily visitors are mothers with children, elderly people and young folk looking to spend their leisure time together. The CC is open daily from 10am to 5pm, from Monday until Friday. The visitors of the Center have access to Internet, coffee and tea, a laundry machine and the activities offered by Be a Robin and our partner organisations. Each afternoon there are Greek, English and German classes for different levels.

We would like to focus more on educational activities of all kinds at the CC without taking away the inviting atmosphere for people to simply come and hang out, have a chat and a cup of tea. With a structured offer of educational classes adjusted to the needs of the local community and motivated volunteers to conduct classes and activities, we essentially will be able to offer what people in the community need. To keep the programme at the CC interesting and diverse, we invite different new organisations and volunteers to offer their services at the CC. Paired with the knowledge and experience of our partners at IsrAID we are confident that our services will be appreciated and used by residents, as they have in the past.

Are you interested in volunteering in Greece?

We are looking for you! In order to offer our services to the displaced, as well as the local community, we need motivated and curious people with ideas and the will to make a small difference with a huge impact. 

Our Swiss Robins on site will welcome you, help you find an accommodation if needed and are your personal contact during your time in Greece. Email us at : meret.balmer@be-a-robin.com .
