INFORMATION ON SERVICES PROVIDED IN ZEUXIS DAY CARE CENTER
ZEUXIS Day Care Center for the “Psychosocial Support and Non Formal Education of Refugee and Migrant Minors and their Families” is a model space for holistic intervention and interdisciplinary work with refugee and migrant minors, which operates around two axels;
On one hand through the psychological assessment and support by a clinical psychologist, and on the other hand, through the participation of beneficiaries –minors and their parents- in the non-formal educational program, we aim at empowering the beneficiaries to deal with the challenges of the new environment, as well as at training and developing their emotional and cognitive skills.
Currently it is estimated that in Greece there are 3.050 unaccompanied minors (UAMs) of which 96.2% are boys and 3.8% are girls.
Almost 42% of those, meaning 1280 children, are homeless, in non-formal housing projects (squads) or in unknown locations and are faced with dangers such as sexual exploitation, exposure to trafficking, forced labor etc.
