Lifting Hands International is looking for a facilitator for our FFS (female-friendly space) ASAP, for the residents of a camp in Serres, a small town about one hour away from Thessaloniki.

The female-friendly space is a time for women to escape the chaos of camp and daily responsibilities. Our volunteers help to facilitate a safe space for these amazing women by running activities, talking with the women, helping to watch their babies and providing workshops where possible. The Serres camp has a population of approximately 450 residents, all of whom are Yazidi refugees. 

As FFS facilitator, you would:

  • Oversee the FFS team and ensure all volunteers have adequate training on arrival and ongoing support throughout their time with LHI
  • Timetable, budget and plan activities for the FFS
  • Work closely with our team leads and support them in management responsibilities
  • Be passionate for building strong communities and safe spaces for women
  • Have the ability to communicate across language barriers
  • Ideally have prior experience working with gender related issues in a refugee context

We can offer free housing at our volunteer apartment in the centre of Serres. Minimum time commitment 90 days. Minimum age requirement 21. For more information on the project please email greecevolunteer@liftinghandsinternational.org
