Lifting Hands International (LHI) is a non-profit organization which runs its educational and recreational programmes five days a week for the residents of a refugee camp located in Serres, Northern Greece, a small town about one hour away form Thessaloniki.
The volunteer should lead mainly fitness and dance classes, but also yoga classes, to children, women, and men. While we do not require the volunteers to be a qualified yoga, fitness or dance instructor, being an experienced practitioner in one of these sports is essential.
– Time requirement: we generally ask for a minimum time commitment of 30 days on the ground but are willing to make exceptions depending on our needs.
– Age limit: 21+ preferred, but willing to make exceptions.
Limited housing is available for 5euros per night for the volunteers who commit for a minimum of 30 days.
For more information on the project please email our volunteer coordinator Cecilia.
