Our Vision

Πρώτα το Παιδί – Children First aims to empower children living at risk of poverty or below the poverty line in Greece by working with their families to improve their lives in three key areas: nutrition, education and medical care.
We believe that all children should have equal opportunities to thrive.
We envision becoming the link between beneficiary families and those in the community who want to take an active role in bringing about change.
We hope to foster kindness, solidarity and trust; to give people ways to help, either with their free time, their skills or their financial gifts; to create an ever-growing family whose members believe that every child should have equal opportunities to thrive, and who actively help as many children as possible to do so.

“Our children are our greatest treasure. They are the future.”

Nelson Mandela

Single-Parent Families Empowerment Program 

In carrying out our child empowerment work, we found that a great percentage of parents living at the poverty line are single mothers. These mothers find it difficult to find employment; this increases their livelihood challenges and their feeling of social exclusion.
To empower them, we created the Girls Empowering Girls initiative.

Our organization’s participation and the implementation of the project “Promoting the Girls Empowering Girls program to empower mothers and daughters of single-parent families” are supported by the Bodosaki Foundation and Fondation Chanel, within the framework of the Civil Society Organizations Empowerment Program supporting organizations active in the field of gender equality.
