About the project

Dinami addresses mental distress and social exclusion by bringing young people together to learn, create and connect. Meaning ‘power’ in  Greek, it offers refugees a vital link to the community, plus a chance to develop skills, make friends, and get respite from the challenges of life in displacement. Connecting host community youth to like-minded refugees helps to counter negative narratives around refugees and promote diversity and inclusion within wider society.
