Happy Caravan provides emergency social, emotional, educational support to the most vulnerable children in crisis.
The idea of Happy Caravan was inspired by a Syrian refugee himself through his work as a volunteer in a refugee camp in Greece. During his time volunteering at the camp, Alaeddin Janid saw the severe lack of structure and loss of education for children in the camp.
He began by teaching the children the alphabet and later purchased a TV for 20 euros to create an outdoor cinema showing movies in English. When Alaeddin returned to the Netherlands, where he was living at the time, he began to build the idea of Happy Caravan – a school of English & Creativity for refugee children.
They are currently active in the camps in Thermopylae and Malakasa.
