The Greek Forum of Refugees (GFR) was created in 2010 and founded in 2012. GFR mission is the creation of a national sustainable network of refugees, individuals, unions, communities and associations working to support asylum seekers, refugees and stateless persons, focusing on their auto-organization, public expression and representation, through a common course of action. GFR is a grassroots organisation where the refugee communities are the main actors. It acquired expertise on communities’ mobilization, advocacy capacities, legislation/ practices analysis on refugee issues, need assessment for refugee communities, strengthening cooperation between Greek organizations and refugee communities, sharing information with authorities and stakeholders, organization of various cultural events and conferences. GFR main goal is to organize and develop the solidarity among refugees because their own participation and contributions in matters affecting them is required by the circumstances. The main axes of activities are four:

  1. Protecting and promoting the rights of asylum seekers and refugees
  2. Raising awareness
  3. Encouraging social participation and integration
  4. Networking

    Its strength and added value is resulting from the fact that it is a grassroots organisation where the refugees as individuals and through their organized forms, are the main actors. GFR is a network of refugee’s communities and the importance is that GFR is the pool of the experience of refugees themselves. So, the information that GFR can accumulate is derived from the reality of refugees. Also, the contact with the communities is an important key of its action.
    Refugee and migrant communties in Greece have already used sport as an inclusion tool. GFR, platform of communities, is focusing in inclusion issues and activities and trough MATCH has the opportunity to introduce sport in ist priorities.
