Why this project ?

The project was initiated by X young refugees 17- 25 years old, including UASC and unaccompanied children who recently became adults. Most staying at the sites around Attica (Elaionas, Malakasa), or at UNHCR accommodation, or at shelters for unaccompanied minors.

The group has been learning the Greek language at Kyclos and has the intention to stay in Greece and integrate in the local society. A major challenge they face is related to income creation. Kyclos has been supported by the cosmetics and detergents Greek producer, cleanway.gr, , who has been providing materials and expertise on how to make soap. The group would like to continue this collaboration, further build their capacity and set up a small business for producing and selling soap.
