Healing Trauma through Play (Healing Play) aims to support refugee children and their parents, primarily those arriving from Ukraine, with psychological support and educational activities to promote empowerment, psychological resilience opportunities, and processing of their challenges. The project will be implemented in partnership with the UTechLab of the Eugenides Foundation and is funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs through the American Spaces program. Youth will have the opportunity to join in STEM and educational activities and will have access to counselling and psychological services at the Athens Solidarity Center of SolidarityNow. The project will last six months and will begin in November 2022.

The project is supported by the US Embassy in Athens.
