OUR CHARITY PROJECTS
Give housing security to families in Greece facing homelessness and help them return to a life of self-sufficiency.
In collaboration with «Διογένης ΜΚΟ» we locate marginalized families facing homelessness. With the support of local Real Estate agencies we secure proper and affordable homes for the future.
alms NGO will use consumer donations to allocate sufficient funds to cover rent and utilities, as well as basic furnishing and clothing expenses, for a period of 12 months. Giving housing stability will eliminate insecurity and give a kick-start to a life of self-sufficiency.
The situation in Greece has been dire for the past 10 years. High unemployment rates, indebtedness, diminished income, deteriorating savings, are some of the challenges affecting us all, whether we have a job, or searching for one. At the same time, employability requirements are increasing, and many jobs remain vacant due to lack of skills.
To combat this unprecedented phenomenon that has led people living in grim conditions, knowl Social Enterprise for Education and Life Long Learning developed in 2015 Mellon (Greek word for ‘Future’, i.e. ‘Mέλλον’) Skills Accelerator, an award-winning skills development and empowerment program that has improved the lives of hundreds of people suffering from social exclusion, marginalization and poverty by up-skilling & re-skilling them to successfully claim their ideal job.
Because by buying a Believe bottle, you will help us offer additional cycles focusing on people who are homeless or at the verge of homelessness; refugees, asylum seekers & migrants; NEETs, unemployed & underemployed youth; and underemployed women of single-parent families.
Each cycle will last for 3 months and host 25 beneficiaries, guiding them to identify the skills they already have and how they can be reclaimed and enhanced to apply to different business environments and conditions. Then, more specific professional skills will be developed or reinforced, relating to their new career prospects, offering a minimum of 50 hrs training/ counseling per person.
