‘Volunteering is a value, an ideal, with the aim of civic-mindedness. It is the most important indicator of health, balance and culture of a society.’
In light of the above, MDA Hellas must be organized in such a way that it can integrate volunteers into its structure: people who – depending on their interests and availability – will form a supportive chain in the valuable work of the Association.
A helping hand in this effort was the ‘Employment and Vocational Training’ Operational Programme of the Ministry for Employment Affairs and Social Protection. Specifically, the actions of the Association for the promotion of volunteering, during the period from 19 February 2008 to 19 December 2008, were co-financed by 75% by the European Social Fund.
The programme was organized in such a way that it could be implemented in three municipalities in the Prefecture of Attica, addressed to different target groups per municipality.
