Review Description

Habibi Center is a non-formal educational project addressed to young refugees coming from different countries in current or past conflict – such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Pakistan, and some other countries.


The Habibi Center is an organization based in Athens, Greece, which provides vulnerable young refugees from different nationalities and religions with a safe, a respectful, and friendly environment in order to be able to build up dignity, self-confidence, and self-esteem as well as offering the learning of the English language and preparing them for official Cambridge exams. 

Habibi Center focuses on English lessons – from completely illiterate beginners to CEFR B2 level. The main aim is to see a consistent evolution of the students to be able to prepare them for official Cambridge English exams, such as KET, PET, and FCE. 

Maths is also provided for all the students keen to increase their knowledge, through uploaded material within the Habibi Center Virtual School. In addition, other short-term activities such as fine arts, geography, science, photography, and writing skills are carried out subject to specialized volunteers’ availability.

2022 at Teach English to Refugee Youth

I have worked at Habibi Center from September 2022 to December 2022. Coming here was the best decision I have ever made. It has been amazing. My personal life had become very difficult and I needed a break. I came to Habibi and I was feeling better every day. The students are so grateful and ...

2022 at Teach English to Refugee Youth

The time I spent in Athens was so satsifying I decided to extend my volunteer period. The communication is very good, the work can be tiring but is definitely rewarding and most importantly, the way the refugee youth are approached is exceptionally professional, respectful and with nothing in mind ...
