Africa in Greece

Africa in Greece aims to empower African youth residing in Athens by equipping them with skills needed in the 21st Century, such as collaboration, communication, leadership, and digital skills, to prepare them for entering the labor market. Furthermore, this project aims to enhance intercultural understanding and cross-cultural communication between Africans and the local community by offering the participants a platform to present their cultures, create acknowledgment, and end marginalization.
