CITY TOUR WITH CARITAS ATHENS’ BUDDY PROGRAM

The newly introduced Caritas Athens’ Buddy Program successfully deploys as part of the efforts to strengthen livelihoods and social integration prospects for recognized refugees and their families/asylum seekers in Greece, cultivating friendship among the beneficiaries and local community members and strengthening their participation in leisure activities.

On Saturday, February 3rd our second activity took place, a one-hour long sightseeing tour of the capital’s landmarks, in the open-top buses Sights of Athens.

Five refugee families and two Greek families enjoyed this… tour of Athens, extremely enthusiastic about what they saw and learned about the city’s buildings and history!

It is worth mentioning that both Greeks and the beneficiaries were delighted about the program, while they expressed their desire to join similar events in the future!
