Corporate Engagement and Partnerships
Private donors and businesses, from global corporations to local companies that want to contribute in addressing this crisis can use the HOME Project as a channel that will ensure that their assistance and support will reach those most in need in the most efficient and timely manner.
The creation of a positive and supportive community around this issue, where the private sector and private initiative have a central role to play, is of crucial importance in facing this refugee crisis.
The HOME Project coordinates and forges effective communication and partnerships between relevant stakeholders: NGOs, private donors, corporations, media, public authorities, national and international organizations and foundations. We operate as a solutions platform engaging, coordinating and empowering all relevant stakeholders to contribute. If you wish to help, please contact us, and a member of our team will inform you about our current needs and guide you through the means of support.
The HOME Project was founded in response to the call made by President Obama to the private sector to help in addressing the refugee crisis in 2016. The Libra Group enabled the opening of the first shelters and then IKEA Foundation and Shapiro Foundation supported us to scale up our operations reaching 11 shelters.
IKEA Foundation is our main funder and has enabled the operation of 10 shelters and also made available the establishment of our Child Protection Unit, consisting of professional social workers, psychologists, lawyers and psychiatrists, and its implementation model, concluding to an Individual Development Plan (IDP) for every child we care for. The development of the IDP is an ongoing process aligned with the development of a child, in four main areas: a) Mental Health, b) Education, c) Pedagogical Support, d) Social Support.
Shapiro Foundation supports the full operation of one shelter for girls and minor mothers with their babies as well as an educational program that has granted 43 full-time scholarships at ACS Athens.
Currently, The HOME Project operates 14 shelters. The Dutch Government supported financially the opening and operation of the three new shelters, through the collaboration of The HOME Project and Movement on The Ground, a Dutch NGO.
Measured against this human suffering, we are not licensed to complain about a thing. On the contrary we are burdened by the duty to contribute.George M. Logothetis, Chairman and CEO, Libra Group
