What we do

Since it was first established in 1987, ELIX has implemented a number of voluntary actions in various regions of Greece in order to protect the environment, to preserve cultural heritage, to promote non-formal education and to strengthen social cohesion, while it has sent thousands of volunteers from Greece to workcamps abroad.

At the same time, ELIX has designed and implemented a series of social programs, aiming at strengthening social inclusion, protecting the rights of socially vulnerable groups and serving their needs.
