We Were All Refugees: A Fundraising Reception with the Visionary Founders of The International School for Peace
Founded in 2016 by Israeli Jewish and Arab educational organizations, the International School for Peace (ISOP) is located on the island of Lesbos in Greece, serving the thousands of children living in refugee camps, primarily from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Africa. As increasing numbers of refugees are stranded on Lesbos and unable to enter Europe, the school continues to offer critical education and community building. The school is run primarily by volunteers and employs local refugees as teachers. Currently it serves 250 children, five afternoons a week. With increased support, ISOP can increase the number of students, teachers, and school hours, improve infrastructure and build a more lasting and sustainable structure to better support the students and their families.
