Short Term Opportunities - Threads of Hope, Athens, Greece

International Teams UK

"Threads of Hope restores hope to exploited women in Europe. We aim to provide life-changing opportunities through employment and training. We invite exploited women to our training programme where we teach both sewing skills and life skills. We provide a holistic training programme, Greek and English lessons, emotional and spiritual support and other training dependent upon the person’s needs. We aim to empower women to be confident about starting a new chapter in their lives - lives free from abuse, discrimination, intimidation and fear".

The aim at Threads of Hope is to expand our training programme and work area. We are at capacity in both and can no longer accept new women. Therefore, we have signed a new rental contract for a new premises in Athens, where we hope to start a new training programme in April. The new premises is in need of a facelift. It is in need of painting & cleaning; we need to buy and build furniture and while this is all happening, care for the women we already have employed and the women and children in the training program. We need people to come and help us do this for whatever period of time they can. If you can decorate, clean, baby sit and much more we need you.

Cost – depends of length of placement.
