The ELIX team is delighted to announce the return of the successful "Summer in the City" Volunteering Teams in July 2024! After eight consecutive years of implementation, ELIX, with the support of the Municipality of Acharnes and the 18th Primary School of Acharnes, is back to offer another year of a unique experience to 60 children.
