As part of our ongoing involvement in the refugee crisis response across Greece we are shortly launching a new and exciting project.
During this two week project we will provide ICT training for a number of refugees residing in the official camps. The training will focus on the use, configuration and maintenance of WiFi networks in general as well as the specific maintenance of the networks that we have installed in the camps. Following the completion of this training the participants will be become members of our volunteer teams and assist in the maintenance and support of the network infrastructure in the camp that they reside in.
In addition to the training provided we are working to provide each participant with a smartphone and laptop that they can use to carry our their volunteer work.
We are working together with a number of organisations that are working in the camps in Attica to identify suitable refugees. A suitable candidate should already posses a basic knowledge of computer networking as well as a basic comprehension of spoken and written English.
We’re aiming to run the training sessions around the middle of August and for the moment the project will be limited to the Attica region.
