Children’s futures shouldn’t be weapons of war. I AM SURE OF THIS.
Years without proper education, opportunities to explore one’s creativity, imagination, to find one’s voice, to heal trauma can severely damage refugee children’s futures.
My name is Ausra. I CHOOSE to represent ReVi Academy in this fundraising endeavour because I support #EducationForAll, because I stand #WithRefugees and because my values (engraved by the society healing from war atrocities), ideals (developed over curiously learning about people and the world) and personal ethics (oh, those amazing neural mechanisms humanity shares!) fuel my vision of better future to #ChildrenInEmergencies.
Do you share same ideals and values? Be the help. Support the #ReViAcademy’s fundraiser and join the ReVi Academy community. Be part of this project protecting futures of 100 children this school year. Choose in which way you can help today.
ReVi Academy is an extracurricular activity center where on average 100 refugee children annually can foster their learning skills (by getting used to basic writing, math, science), nurture their social and communication skills (through play, community events) and learn to regulate their emotions and heal trauma (through yoga, dance, art&craft projects).
Can we collect 10% of what it takes to keep ReVi Academy going for a year? 1557 EUR only!

This initiative is apolitical. It is also NOT affiliated, funded by or in any way associated with any institution or public organization. I joined an independent group of volunteers in Izmir to better understand the Syrian refugee situation in Turkey: access to education, income opportunities and communication among NGOs. This initiative aims at providing safe space for 100 refugee children to dream, study, play & develop their resistance to trauma.
We are giving you a possibility to follow updates from ReVi Academy: you can learn more about ReVi teachers, children life and activities at the Academy by following ReVi Academy page created for this fundraiser specifically .
