Ethos is independent, voluntary humanitarian association of individuals and groups that are actively involved with humanitarian challenges in different parts of the world.
We are an intercultural and non-denominational organisational platform, open to all individuals and groups who wish to bring positive social change with honest intentions and peaceful actions anywhere in this world.
We come together from diverse social and ethnic backgrounds, joining our skills and uniting our resources to promote equality and to help the sustainable evolution of humanity. We care for children, youth and vulnerable people in need, and all of us share a common vision: We want to live in a peaceful world where all children can freely grow to their full potentials.
We unite to support marginalised children, individuals and groups in their efforts to overcome social barriers and in creating positive change for their life, their society and the world.
Since 2010, some of our members have been working in India, particularly supporting youth and women’s empowerment through community cooperative projects. In 2015, as the refugee crisis escalated in Europe, we developed our response through a local branch in Greece and started to bring forward meaningful interventions that would equally support the needs of refugees, migrants and local vulnerable people in an ethical and effective manner. In November 2017, we established a protective apartment for homeless teenagers and unaccompanied children that ended up alone in Greece, providing safe accommodation, nutrition and daily activities that nourish their healthy growth and independence. Since 2018 we are cooking together for all and support people to overcome discrimination and social isolation. We regenerate community relations through social kitchens, plant urban gardens and nurture abandoned public spaces – together with the community of Pervolarides and people from diverse local and refugee communities we plant the seeds for social innovation, cross-cultural synergies and greater community integration.
Human Rights and Equal Opportunities for All.
Ethos is registered as voluntary humanitarian association in Denmark and Greece, governed by constitution and steered by our members through the general assembly, which democratically elects a board of 5 representatives responsible for the coordination of our projects. We are non-profit and sustained economically by our members, volunteers, friends and supporters who commit their personal time and resources in developing our activities and the vision of this association.
