Our work

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.

  • Baytna Hub in Eleonas Refugee Camp by ELIX

    We are proud to announce a new partnership of ELIX which aspires to support children, refugees and immigrants who live in Greece and more specifically in Attica.

    ELIX joins forces with the Refugee Trauma Initiative and creates a Baytna Hub in the open accommodation site of Elaionas where it will provide a safe and creative space for preschool children, aged 2.5-4.5 years.


  • "p^2 multispace" a safe and welcoming place by ELIX

    ELIX has responded to the growing need for a safe and welcoming place for young people to relax, socialize and take part in activities, by creating a multi-space called “p^2 multispace”, near Omonia Sq.


  • "Stepkids" a project for the personal and social development of children

    ELIX began in October 2016 the implementation of “The Children's Personal and Social Development Program” - "Stepkids" in Kypseli area, Athens, funded by Germany's "Kreuzberger Kinderstiftung" institution.


  • "Lessons of Solidarity" a project to support vulnerable social groups in a period of crisis

    Recognizing the need to support vulnerable social groups, in an era of economic and cultural crisis, ELIX contributed with teams of selected volunteers to the operation of several Social Welfare Institutions by supporting their daily work.

    ELIX's "Lessons of Solidarity" projected was initiated in 2012 with the support of Stavros Niarchos Foundation, as part of the Foundation's three-year initiative, to support those who need special assistance due to the current socio-economic crisis in Greece.


  • "Summer in the City" - Recreational activities for children

    ELIX, drawing on its 25 years of experience in volunteering and in designing/implementing projects with social impact, created in 2012 a recreational activities program for children, aged 6 to 12, with the title "Summer in the City" (in Greek: Diakopes sto Sholio).

    The project was initially implemented (2012 and 2013) in the Municipalities of Athens, Zografou, Maroussi and Piraeus, while ELIX continued the program in the coming years, securing funding from other sources in order to maintain such an important initiative.


  • This Summer is Ours

    "This Summer is Ours" (in greek: Afto to Kalokairi einai Diko mas) started in 2013 with the support of the company - Hellenic Petroleum - and the Municipality of Elefsina in Attika and Kordelio-Evosmos in Thessaloniki.

    The program aims to support children and young people with mental and physical disabilities, by providing them the opportunity to spend a quality summer time through creative activities since it is difficult for this target group to find any activities they could take part in during summer.
