GAF’s mission is to work towards the protection and empowerment of women and girls in all spheres of public and private life so that they realize their potential in a just and unbiased society. Through our guiding principle, we strive to address a number of structural inequalities which are layered in social organization and mindset, and present the building blocks of gender based discrimination and violence. The issues we devote our efforts to are prevention and protection against domestic violence, trafficking in human beings and promotion of sexual and reproductive health and rights.

Our target groups are women and girls victims of gender-based violence and discrimination. These include women and girls from rural areas, minority women; victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation, foreign and migrant women; disabled women; elderly women; and women victims of multiple discrimination.

KMOP – Kentro Merimnas Oikogeneias kai Paidiou

KMOP is a non-profit organisation, founded in 1977, being thus one of the oldest Greek NGOs with 40 years of accumulated experience in supporting disadvantaged groups. KMOP is committed to kindling a better world. That is a world that rests on a foundation of sustainable development, social growth, and individual well-being.

We believe that a prerequisite for building a better world is addressing the underlying causes of vulnerability by building resilience of individuals and communities to anticipate, resist and recover from the risks that shifting societal, technological and environmental developments create.

A focus on resilience places empowerment and human development square at the center of our work. Resilience is enabled by building stronger bridges among individuals, groups and communities. Once empowered, communities are better able to build individual capacities to cope with hazards and tackling the root causes of vulnerability, such as unemployment and social exclusion, poverty, discrimination, inequality and inadequate access to resources and livelihoods.

We work with the public and private sectors, as well as with civil society to drive solution-oriented, knowledge-based interventions that are crucial to fostering resilience and making the world a better place to live.

KMOP’s main areas of expertise include social welfare and health, employability and human rights protection, scientific research and development of know-how in social policy and social protection issues.

Apart from direct provision of services through decentralised community based facilities (Three Group Houses and one Day Care Centre for mentally ill, as well as counseling centers in various towns), KMOP is also actively involved in both national and international projects, addressing social issues particularly focusing on low-skilled youth and long term unemployed, victims of violence and trafficking, disabled, elderly, migrants and minorities.
