Agape (Love) is the Most Beautiful Word in Greek: Unaccompanied Refugee Minors in Greek Schools

Η αγάπη είναι η πιο όμορφη λέξη στα ελληνικά: ασυνόδευτοι ανήλικοι πρόσφυγες στα ελληνικά σχολεία

Unaccompanied minor refugees in Greece. Where do they come from; how and why? What are their needs and dreams? Do they go to school like other children of their age? How do they feel there? The crucial question determining their future: “Whose children are these?” The Greek volunteer group “Foster Teachers” contributed with this film to the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY project “Teaching to Hope: Saving the education of refugee teens during and after the pandemic's school shutdowns.”
