Together for Children
The Social Work Foundation is one of the ten founding members of the “Together for the Child” Association, founded in 1996, composed of organizations serving children in need. The aim of the association is to combine our efforts to more effectively help the more than 10,000 children served each year, offering psychological, moral and financial support, as well as providing information to the public about children’s issues.
We are one of the thirteen founding members and participate in the Board of Directors of the nationwide Network of Service Providers for People with Disabilities, known as “The Network”
We participate in the Network of Non-Governmental Organizations which monitor the implementation of the International Convention on the Rights of the Children, established in 2009 by the Greek Children Ombudsman. The aim of the network is the protection and promotion of children’s rights in our country and, in particular, the monitoring of the implementation of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (ICC) in Greece.

Foundation to Combat Poverty
We collaborate with the Foundation to Combat Poverty and operate the “Food Bank” at the Center.
On a weekly basis we provide fresh, frozen and dry goods of all kinds, registered in a special Receipt Form. The food is stored in a special food warehouse within the Foundation, equipped with large refrigerators/freezers and shelving for storing products. Twice a week, the food is distributed to the homes of beneficiary students during the regularly scheduled runs of the Center’s school buses.
