This photo exhibition represents part of the results accomplished through a series of recreational and educational activities for refugee children in Schisto and Elliniko III in collaboration with Save the Children and the Network for Children’s Rights.

Background: The aim of the Blue Dot Project is to provide to beneficiaries a standardized, consistent, and predictable package of services in relation to protection, psychosocial support, and recreation. The project provides child-friendly spaces for educational activities, spaces for mothers and babies, and counselling with regard to pregnancy, breastfeeding, and child care. It also includes informational points about the conditions and rights of refugees, as well as private areas for individualized counselling and psychosocial support. Through these services, it can help identify and refer cases of domestic and sexual or gender-based violence, provide assistance in psychiatric cases, identify and support unaccompanied children, and facilitate family reunification.
