Project Description

Wave of Hope for the Future is a network of self-organized schools run by refugees for refugees. From a single school in Moria, Wave of Hope for the Future became a wider project run by refugees providing emergency education in various refugee camps in Greece. In early 2019, Zekria Farzad started to teach children with nothing but a whiteboard on a bench, in the middle of the Olive Grove around Moria camp. Today, the school offers classes in Art, English, Sports and many other subjects and even helps to rebuild a school in Afghanistan. Wave of Hope for the Future is a powerful example showing how refugees – despite all difficulties – are self-organizing and support their communities. With their talent and motivation, they can enrich and help build the future of Europe.
