SolidariTee is an international movement of students, and those who support us, striving for empowering, long-term change in the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers worldwide.
350 events and initiatives
£103,000 in grants
In the 2020-21 academic year, we gave grants totalling £103,000 to 6 NGOs working to uphold the rights of refugees and asylum seekers in 4 regions of Greece. By providing legal aid and other forms of vital aid including mental health and psychological support, translation and interpretation, their work supports those who have fled violence and persecution in navigating the incredibly complex asylum system and harsh conditions in refugee camps.

What does it mean to be a refugee?
A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee their home due to fear of persecution because of their identity or beliefs. Today, refugees and asylum seekers who have made unbelievably difficult and life-threatening journeys to reach safety are frequently forced to live in unbearable conditions in ‘camps’ across Europe and around the world.
SolidariTee is a grant-giving charity
We provide grants to NGOs (non-governmental organisations) which provide legal aid and other long-term, empowering forms of support to asylum seekers. In the 21-22 academic year, we have pledged funding totalling £142,000 to 8 NGOs working in Greece, the Western Balkans and internationally.
Who we are and what we do
We work to raise awareness and inform the international community about the injustices perpetrated against refugees and asylum seekers worldwide, and about how we can create positive, lasting change to uphold the rights of all those affected by forced displacement. Our student volunteers organise a variety of online and (covid-19 permitting) in-person events and activities, ranging from conferences and panel discussions through to pottery events and quiz nights, in addition to raising vital funds through the sale of our custom made t-shirts, or SolidariTees.
We’re student-led, but by no means student exclusive, and to make truly meaningful change we need to unite the international community as a whole. We welcome everyone to attend our events, join the movement, and stand in solidarity with refugees worldwide.
