2023 Fellows

Blossom Hill is thrilled to announce our 2023 Class of Fellows! This year, two new Fellows are joining our Fellowship program with innovative initiatives to make breakthroughs for refugee children affected by conflict and war. These initiatives will put refugee children and youth on the path to success and a better future.

BH Fellow 2023
Angeliki Georgokosta (Greece)

When Angeliki witnessed firsthand the neglect and loneliness of the refugees living in Greece, she knew she had to address it. At El Sistema Greece, an educational program that uses music for social change, she has been a fundamental part of the administration bringing to life various educational and artistic projects while managing and empowering a strong team of music educators and administrators over the last six years. Now as the general manager of the organization, she will oversee Blossom Hill's Youth Orchestra to promote the social inclusion of refugee children in Greek society. By teaching them music, they are not only inspiring the children to strive for a better future but providing a platform for dialogue and togetherness across diverse communities. Location: Greece

BH Fellow 2023
Salaheildeen Ghannam (Jordan)

Salaheildeen is a native of Jordan and holds a degree in Physics. For the first three years of his career, he was a passionate teacher working in private schools. But when he found himself faced with a rigid school system that did not allow him the freedom to teach in more interactive ways that suited his students, he decided to leave his profession for the humanitarian sector. For the last ten years, Salaheildeen has been working with children from refugee communities to help them achieve the best start in life. Over the years, he took on various responsibilities at different NGOs in Jordan -- from a family caseworker to a program coordinator implementing complex projects. Currently, he coordinates various programs at the Collateral Repair Project. As a Blossom Hill Fellow, Salaheildeen will be coordinating the Sports for All Program, SuperGirls, and Resilient Girls programs. Location: Jordan
