Meetings of the members of the Network of the Unaccompanied Minors of META-Drasi
The aim of the meetings is to inform and provide solutions to problems related to the unaccompanied minors.

Greek Language Lessons of META-Drasi to adult refugees and immigrants
Lessons to five different classes that were divided according to level took place at HIGGS during the time period of October 2016 to May 2017. The lessons where taught by volunteers and focused on individuals that would like to learn the Greek language and become a part of the Greek society by improving their communication skills. Alongside, individualized teaching courses took place for students in need. The students had also the chance to take part at exams certifying their Greek knowledge.
