Hear the story of how a dedicated group of people in Greece became HOME for child refugees
That’s the story you’ll hear IKEA Foundation COO Stelios Kyriakakis talk about with Home Project CEO Sofia Kouvelaki and special guest Amadou Diallo.
Sofia Kouvelaki is the Chief Executive Officer of The Home Project. She was the Program Manager of the Bodossaki Foundation Program for Unaccompanied Minors and inter alia, in charge of projects on Social Welfare Provision to socially vulnerable groups. She has worked at the UN and at UNICEF in the economic analysis and social policy division and as an Adviser and Researcher for the public and private sector in Greece.
The HOME Project is a non-profit organization set up to address the needs of refugee and migrant children, who arrive in Greece alone.
They move children from the streets, camps, police stations, detention centers and bring them to the safety of their HOMES. They provide them with support, protection, education and social integration services.
