LATRA builds the world better by operating its Innovation Lab in situ refugee camps both in Lesvos and across Greece
Through inclusion and direct hands-on engagement, we co-create alongside refugees and migrants projects that empower people to become not just actors in their lives, but directors of their resilient future. Our projects are primarily orientated around :
We provide non-formal STEAM education to equip children, youth and young adults with the necessary skills that will allow them to integrate in 21st Century European society.
We produce interdisciplinary arts and cultural activities centred around intercultural dialogue, intersectionality and sociocracy for the purpose of utilising arts and culture as a mediator for integration.
We advocate for human rights by working together with refugees and migrants in co-creating awareness-raising campaigns that empower people of all ages to find, raise and amplify their voice on issues concerning their communities.
We provide hands-on construction services geared towards improving the camp’s infrastructure and dignifying the lives and well-being of communities residing in the camp.
We organise the purchasing and distribution of humanitarian relief items that meet fundamental needs of the community and assist them to survive and prosper during hardship.
