There are over 60,000 refugees in Greece, who face great challenges in integrating into society, finding income-generating activities, rebuilding social networks, and addressing trauma resulting from violence and loss or separation from family members.

In partnership with the MIT D-Lab, Faros (Local NGO) provides refugee minors and women in Greece with hands-on design education, coupled with psychosocial support to nurture their creativity and mental health. Through design, the Horizon Program provides refugees with technical and soft skills to improve their livelihoods now and in the future and to rebuild their sense of agency.
