Building a Sustainable Community

Building a Sustainable Community At "When We Band Together," we believe that building a sustainable community is the key to empowering refugee women and children in Lesvos, Greece. Our organization is dedicated to providing a wide range of services that not only meet the immediate needs of these individuals but also focus on long-term solutions and community-building. One of the ways we empower the refugee community is through educational classes. We offer classes in various subjects, including language, math, and vocational skills. By providing education, we aim to equip these individuals with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in their new environment and create a better future for themselves and their families. Job readiness training is another essential service we provide. We understand that finding employment is crucial for refugees to become self-sufficient and integrate into society. Our training programs focus on resume building, interview skills, and job search strategies, giving them the tools they need to secure meaningful employment. Art therapy plays a significant role in our efforts to support the mental and emotional well-being of refugee women and children. Through creative expression, we provide a safe space for them to heal from trauma and express their emotions. Art therapy has proven to be a powerful tool in promoting self-discovery, self-expression, and resilience. We also prioritize the mental and physical health care of the refugee community. Our team of healthcare professionals provides medical check-ups, mental health counseling, and access to essential medications. By addressing their healthcare needs, we aim to improve their overall well-being and quality of life. In addition to these services, we are committed to supporting the local economy. We believe that by purchasing locally and collaborating with local businesses, we can create sustainable economic opportunities for both the refugee community and the local population. We also work towards revitalizing the tourist industry by showcasing the rich cultural heritage of Lesvos and promoting responsible tourism. However, our main challenge lies in securing funding to continue our operations. We rely on the generosity of individuals and organizations who share our vision of empowering refugee women and children. Your support is crucial in ensuring that we can continue to provide these vital services and make a lasting impact on the lives of those we serve. We invite you to join us in taking collective action. Together, we can build a sustainable community where refugee women and children can thrive and create a brighter future.
