Our mission is to provide safety, support and hope for women ﬂeeing conﬂict, violence and persecution through our projects – the Athena Centre for Women on the Aegean Island of Chios, and the Halcyon Days Project in Athens.
The Athena Centre for Women, which opened in July 2016, was the ﬁrst women-only space outside of oﬃcial camp structures in Greece. Since opening we have logged almost 18,000 + entries.
Our projects have been developed to deliver a dynamic response to the biggest humanitarian crisis since World War 2.
