If you would like to donate books, get in touch at email@example.com.
Running the ECHO library costs roughly €25,000 per year. We are a small, independent project that relies largely on crowdfunding to survive. Our costs include fuel, van maintenance, printing educational materials and coordinator stipends.
If you would like to support ECHO with a one-off donation you can visit our Chuffed page here.
If you would like to discuss an ongoing donation or other forms of funding, get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
ECHO needs volunteers with experience working with books, education or vulnerable displaced people.
Language skills in Farsi/Dari, Arabic, Kurmanji, Sorani, Urdu and Greek are always useful!
If you would like to volunteer with us in Greece, we ask for a minimum two-month commitment.
In addition, if you have expertise in another area (website maintenance, fundraising etc) and you would like to help, we would love to hear from you!
Get in touch at email@example.com if you are interested in joining our small but perfectly formed team.
