General Information: 

ethelon is a non-profit organization which was established in order to emphasize and promote the notion of volunteering within the Greek society.

ethelon is the result of the merger between two non-profit organizations, Glovo and Volunteer4Greece, which were both founded in 2012 and remained active in parallel for four years. In May 2016, the two organizations merged and created a new one, aspiring to become the point of reference for volunteering in Greece.


Mission and Objectives: 

We aspire to become the point of reference in terms of volunteering in Greece, thus providing every age and social group with the possibility to have access in volunteering events and activities, creating a suitable cooperation framework between NGOs and companies, so that society at large can benefit from it.

Our objective is to establish volunteering as a way of life and a dominant value within the Greek society, making the best out of the skills of its members and creating a social net whose basic components will be its very members.

Main Projects / Activities: 

Through a wide range of activities, events and initiatives, we find, activate and bring together individuals, independent teams, institutions and companies with non-profit organizations, aiming to help them develop synergies, based on volunteering.

Moreover, since 2015 we deside to organise the Career Fair.4all, an initiative to bring the Greek labor market close to people with disabilities. The 1st Career fair for people with disabilities in Europe.

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

We could organize Intercultural events or social actions that promote and advocate for mutual respect between different cultures, while supporting civil society. A good idea might be social cooking, hygiene kits, social graffiti.

Also, we are participating in communities from all over the world, like Points of Light and we are trying to connect and help more than 280 NGO's from Greece and we are organizing or participating in a daily basis social actions, in order to help the society.


Why do you want to join the ALF Network?: 

We strongly believe that our history represent our willing to collaborate and network, since we implement the 1st merge between two NGO's in Greece. Furthermore, we believe that bringing together citizens across the Mediterranean, so that to build trust and increase mutual understanding, between each other. This express our values and beliefs and we hope we will have the opportunity to join ALF's team!
