“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela
Habibi Center is a non-formal educational project in Greece that opened its doors on August 8, 2016. After two years of short-term planning and working as an independent project, the Habibi Center became officially registered in Spain as ‘Asociación Española Habibi Center.’ It is now a long-term resource for asylum-seeking children, teenagers, and young adults in Athens.
Our MISSION is to empower refugee youth through education and life skills and equip them for a brighter future.

“After studying in Habibi Center I traveled to Germany and now I am working as a translator for refugees from English to Arabic for 6 months.”
“I have seen firsthand the transformative and empowering effects of being treated not as a victim but as an equal. Students are respected but not coddled.”
