Social Actions to Support Vulnerable Groups and Awareness

Having the promotion of voluntary work as its main mission and aiming at contributing to the personal development of the individual and his/her evolution as a world citizen of the world through active social participation, ELIX has developed during the recent years a number of activities and projects that seek to address social problems and mitigate the effects of the economic and social crisis.

Our projects are aiming mainly at children, young people and their families residing in Greece but also, at children and young people reside in Greece due to the refugee crisis of 2015.

In addition, we implement work experience programs, which support unemployed and young graduates.
