I'm Maya, a group Facilitator and Activist- and I'm hoping to host group circles with the Volunteers of a new refugee camp In Greece.
אני מאיה, מנחת קבוצות ואקטיביסטים- ואני מתכוונת להנחות מעגלי שיח של מתנדבים במחנה פליטים חדש ביוון.

Hi, I'm Maya, a young but experienced Group Facilitator and Activist. For the past 5 years I have been designing and Hosting different kinds of Circles and groups, always rooted in my Activist beliefs of non-hierarchical compassionate communication, inviting self-organization and community building within people.

Elpída Home is a project near Thessaloniki creating humane living conditions for refugees fleeing war ,   that will allow them to participate in creating their living conditions. Dozens of volunteers from different organizations have been working on renovating an old factory, set to receive the first of Elpida's inhabitant tomorrow.  (if you wish to read more or support Elpida Home directly-  please do so :)

I wish to offer my skills as a group facilitator and host to the international team of Volunteers making this better way of life for Refugees possible- I feel that sharing our emotions and passions, especially while doing such intense humanitarian work is super important, strengthening the dynamic community receiving and supporting the Refugees.

Volunteering my time means I need some support to get me to Thessaloniki in North Greece, and for my stay there.

I'm hoping to raise just over 900 Euro for my flights and travel, accommodation and food.

This feels a little weird, asking for your help, as usually I can pay for myself- but I have decided to push embarrassment out of the way to allow anybody who wishes to partner with me in this calling I have to do so.

I feel very honored this opportunity has presented itself, and am very excited about what is about to come.    

Thanks for reading :)
