First web page has to do with the project "it could be me – it could be you" which addresses members of the educational community, namely teachers and students of primary and secondary education, education officials, parents as well as youth trainers and local community members that are interested in the human rights movement. Web page presents the general info about the project and its 7 different actions, provides calendar events and calls and lastly, offers a send material form for the participants to present the results of their work.

"Monologues across the Aegean Sea" is a collection of 28 testimonies of unaccompanied refugee children from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Morocco and Egypt. These children were forced to leave their homeland and arrived alone in Greece, crossing the Aegean Sea. The site provides information about the program, call to action and participation, and offers a form for participants to present the results of their work with accompanying pictures and text.
