Mosaik offers free education, recreational activities to refugees stranded on the island and hosts events and and activities for both refugees and locals. Moreover we offer free transportation to our students who live in camps outside Mytilini such as Moria and Kara Tepe. Mosaik is an activist solidarity project which aims for political and social change. Therefore we do not  neither apply not accept funding from the European Union or its member states as they are politically responsible for the situation of refugees on the islands. As a consequence Mosaik relies exclusively on donations from individuals, organizations, institutions and foundations who share the idea of support and change through empowerment, solidarity and political activism

We base our work on principles of solidarity instead of charity and believe it is crucial to base our support from within the local community.  Therefore Mosaik employs almost exclusively local people and refugees with the aim to strengthen the community and to connect refugees and locals. Mosaik offers sustainable integration through interaction and learning from each other. With Mosaik we build networks, nourish dialogue and discourse and create resilience to xenophobe and racist narratives. Last but not least we believe that Mosaik will still exist when most other organizations have left or decreased their activities. 

Although Mosaik is a solidarity project Mosaik we do not want to run the project on volunteer basis but believe in creating jobs for locals and refugees. Therefore the majority of our expenses are salaries, rent, maintenance and running costs of the place and costs of transportation for our students. Although supplying bus tickets to our students is a huge expense for our project we believe it is key as it is essential that residents of the camps get out and come to Mytilini. We do not support the built-up of structures around the camp as they just consolidate segregation instead of facilitating integration. Last but not least we spend money on notebooks and learning materials which we provide to our students.
