WHO ARE “SINGLE MEN”?

The migrant population in Greece is made up of asylum seekers, refugees and economic migrants and all of them seek a better, safer life.

This population is broken down into families, single women, unaccompanied minors and single men.

The term “single man” describes a person identifying as male over the age of 18 with no immediate family in Greece.

KNOW THE SITUATION

Challenging stereotypes, supporting individual choices. 

WHAT PROBLEMS DO THEY FACE?

With the media inaccurately characterising them as violent or dangerous, they face a high level of discrimination.

Also often ineligible for family reunification to other countries and last on the list for housing, many of them have been in camps, squats or on the streets for months or years. Both of these factors cause substance abuse and mental health problems to prevail.

WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO OFFER?

Many of these men are talented, intelligent, hard-working people who have skills that Greece and other European countries need, especially in skilled trades, agriculture, and languages.

Most are desperate to work and contribute, but lack the support they need to enter the labour market. It is FORGE’s mission to make sure these structures exist for those that want and need them.

WHAT DOES FORGE DO?

Through personalised programs that consist of psychosocial support, occupational assistance, housing and direct aid, we attempt to stimulate integration, personal autonomy and stability, which together promote the maximum normalisation of lifestyle and living conditions for single men, understanding normalization as independence from social aid and support systems.
