Under the programme Active Citizens Fund – Greece and the EEA Financial Mechanism 2014-2021, a Training Workshop took place in Athens, on 24 September 2020 between Dråpen i Havet and the Greek Council for Refugees.
The workshop, which was a Train the Trainer workshop on Volunteer Management and Engagement, explored concepts of volunteer management, community engagement, advocacy and fundraising and provided information and techniques so that participants can develop the skills required in these fields.
The workshop was attended by 20 people from both organisations. A Drop in the Ocean was represented by the Secretary General, Trude Jacobsen and our HR Coordinator, Operations Coordinator Greece, Greek Relations, Volunteer Coordinator Lesvos, Volunteer Coordinator Skaramagas, International Volunteer Nea Kavala and Resident Volunteer Skaramagas.
A Drop in the Ocean has co-operated with the Greek Council for Refugees since June 2020, and has contributed financially to GCR’s Emergency Fund, which assists the most vulnerable beneficiaries and asylum seekers on Lesvos, including women traveling alone, single-headed families, people with disabilities or chronic diseases as well as children, and unaccompanied and separated minors.
