We need books
We Need Books is an Athens based NGO that believes that multicultural spaces and books serve several important functions that can be of great benefit to all layers of the population of the city, including marginalized and vulnerable populations such as the approximate 55,000 refugees living in Greece.
Over the last year, the organization has collected over 10,000 books, created small libraries, participated in conferences, started fundraising, and established We Need Books as an official NGO.
Since 2016, We Need Books has collected over 10,000 books in over 10 languages, including Arabic, Farsi, English, German and French.
We have opened two libraries, one in Schisto and one in a CRS run shelter, established a good network with other Greek NGOs, and has participated in numerous conferences, workshops and think-tanks around immigration.
