Mazi Housing Project is a refugee housing project which is providing a home for young men forced from their homes and landed in Athens. Young refugee men on their own in Athens are left unsupported by the system, often forced to live on the streets and in turn are exposed to crime, violence, drug abuse and sexual exploitation. Without housing in Greece you cannot access vital services including non-emergency health care, registered employment, financial support, a bank account, public education, or even a public transport card. With Project Mazí we hope to not only support these young men, so they can build a future, but also create a model which can be replicated to reach out to others left behind.
