Synthesis of the case study

The water project is focused on overcoming the fear of water among children who have never seen or been in contact with the sea before. The project is organised by Proem-Aid, a Spanish non-profit organisation operating in Greece. Their main goal is to create positive connotations of the sea for refugees, especially among young refugees. The project is ran by volunteers who first provide swimming lessons for children living in refugee camps.
