The ECHO Mobile Library is a library and education hub that operates in and around Athens, visiting camps, squats and housing blocks. Our primary aim is to provide access to education to asylum seekers aged 15 and up. Our library has Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish and English books, as well as WiFi, electricity & tablets. We provide all the tools to enable access to online learning.

Our mobile library offers:

  • Access to online university courses with certification
  • Access to language learning resources, both physical and digital
  • Tutors to advise on CVs, cover letters, university and job applications
  • A quiet and cosy study space

We are looking for volunteers to join our current team of 2, preferably committed to volunteering for at least two weeks. Beside general volunteers, the following skills are especially needed:


  • Social media, communication and advocacy
  • Ability to drive a large UK van in small (and often chaotic) Greek streets
  • Teaching and/or tutoring expertise (particularly in English language instruction)
  • Logistics and administration


If you would like more information or would like to apply, please send a CV to contact@echo-greece.org. Thank you!
