Dear friends, 
As the Covid-19 restrictions continue, 
our amazing teacher's team working tirelessly to make sure the educational activities, lessons, and meetings continue to occur.
Hers some updated about the situation on Lesvos:
 
Under the Covid-19 restrictions, the Greek Migration Ministry announced last Saturday that the refugee camps would remain under lockdown that extended from week to week. The restrictions began over 100 days ago, on March 21. it leaves the people in the camps with no permit to leave the camp and move freely around the island as before and it also means we still can't take the student out of the camp to the school. 
The restrictions pose a real threat for the camps’ inhabitants: they live under harsh and inhumane conditions, lacking sanitary facilities and now cannot access essential services and support outside the camps.

Opening a Greek NGO:
To ensure the ISOP can work, we have been working on opening a Greek NGO to manage the whole operation from Lesvos. This is due to the Greek government's requirements. We are obligated to do all within our powers to make sure the school will not be harmed again.

In the past months since the fire at the ISOP we have been working constantly in re-inventing our teaching methods. flexibility become our closest friend and we keep developing new creative solutions for the situation.  our teachers have running weekly activity in a divided age group near the camp in a makeshift tents with creative short term solutions to continue the school work, every week that past this activity become bigger and bigger - it includes a large group of our youth students that act as the young leaders of this whole activity, around 250-300 students a group of passionate educators and a jar of endless optimism, creativity, and happiness that is so needed in these rough days. this unique activity expresses the spirit of the school and manages to maintain many of the foundations on which the school is founded.  moreover, school materials and lessons are sent through online platforms and distributed to students by the teachers. the Adult school keep making the impossible possible – our amazing adult's school teachers lead learning groups at different levels throughout the camp, in addition to regular language lessons - 5 levels of WhatsApp\frontal classes and about 250 students.

Please read the beautiful words that one of our magnificent teachers write after the last activity:
"Another golden Saturday has come - 18th July 2020. This Saturday we were all looking forward to meet each other again, From the teachers to the little kids who climbs uphill to get to the painting and studying stations and go to their colorful world
..........
We came more energetic than the previous weeks to have an exciting day for ourselves and the children ...One of the guider's  (Youth students) had a great surprise for all of us,
She is going to geek lessons and know all alphabet, she told us I can teach the little students to learn the Greek alphabet...
………………….
Every week the number of guiders becomes higher than the week before, they are super motivated to help the younger students. what a good feeling to make happy the kids who don't want to be in this bad situation in Moria camp, the kids who are waiting to see a person who cares for them...
They would like to be (seen, heard, felt!!!)
They like to grow up, change their condition and have a good place to live, like all children who have a roof over their heads "

As for now- we are stuck between a rock and a hard place: 
on the one end - we are ready to go on renovating and re-establishing the school facility, yet as long as the students are prohibited from leaving the campground- it makes no sense to begin this operation. 
Since we arrived on the island more than 3 years ago there are 2 basic assumptions that guide us at each and every step we do -
o   First, to address the need that arises from the refugee's community
o   Second, to work with the people and not for them.
we are looking for ways to try and see how to adapt our activities and contemplating whether we should change our pedagogy and establish new projects near Moriah camp. the most important thing we have to focus on is re-establishing our activity in the best way possible for our students. the instability and the harsh conditions in the camp in the past few months have emphasized how much a stable school structure is needed. We keep going, not stopping and not giving up. 
We will continue to providing quality education, a safe space where children's are just children's, and significant adults who dream with them of a better future!
 
Our TEAM on the ground continuing being creative, and teach and educate against all odds.

WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED
STAY WITH US!

Stay healthy and safe!

THANK YOU
