My visit at the refugee camp Diavata in Thessaloniki is completed. It started in November 2019 and ended in June 2019. During my visit, I was providing voluntary work supporting the education team of the camp as well as teaching Greek as a second language to school age children with different ethnic backgrounds.
During the classes, I engaged the children in a variety of activities that boost their language development along with their communication and literacy skills. Through my work there, I had not only gained experience with refugee children but also enriched my knowledge on the subject, improved my research work, and developed as a person.
