The main objective of the project Schools for All is that refugee children are integrated in Greek schools that are safe and inclusive for all. Through the project school directors and teachers are trained to create safe and inclusive schools and classrooms where refugees are welcomed into a learning environment which aims to provide quality education to all.

The training aims to equip school directors and teachers with the tools, competence and confidence to manage controversy and deal with issues concerning intolerance, discrimination, racism and hate speech in school and the local community. Throughout the school year, school teams of school heads, teachers and parents’ representatives are trained and mentored by experienced trainers. The whole school is involved in school activities and workshops.
