Greece: Back to School for Migrant and Refugee Children

Another school year has come to an end for all students in Greece. For a second consecutive year, IOM, the UN Migration Agency, ensured the safe transportation of migrant and refugee children from open accommodation centers to primary and secondary schools and the distribution of necessary school material.

With support from the European Commission - Humanitarian Aid and in close collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs and the Ministry of Migration Policy, IOM Greece contributed to the implementation of the formal education plan for the inclusion of migrant and refugee children into the public education system.
