Based on travels to Greece in 2016 I knew I had to do something to help with the children crisis. It became my passion project. Through volunteer work with the American College of Greece I was inspired to help scholarships fund afternoon programs and provide a vessel for social integration for displaced children between the ages of 7 and 20 years old. The main campaign will be extensively supported by a wide range of annual initiatives.

Initiative: School supplies for refugees at Carytas Athens
Cemeli created a notebook, with inspirational mantras for success. The goal of the initiative was to donate school notebooks to a refugee shelter for the 2017-2018 school year with the proceeds. Cemeli sourced the school supplies from a local factory. In addition, Cemeli performed extensive research to identify a non-profit that would best fulfill the campaign goals in a transparent way.

At Cemeli, we want to take part, we want to revive hope and inspire as many young refugees that had to flee their country due to conflict and danger. Their chance to obtain a degree and build a career is at risk. Cemeli's 2018 initiative can offer optimism to these youth and give them confidence and motivation for a brighter future.
