Community Building Event at Filopappou Hill

On October 2nd, 2021, our children, staff, volunteers, friends and supporters from all over the world came together at the magical place of Filopappou Hill in the center of Athens across one of the most powerful monuments of Greece, the Acropolis. The positive energy of the place along with the pure love of everyone participating enabled us to celebrate diversity, connect with nature and with each other.

It was a day full of life, with different cultures, languages and tastes from all over the world. It reminded us in the simplest way that we need to remain committed to creating inclusive and diverse communities of coexistence, care and love as the only way for a safer and happier society for everyone.

We are grateful to Constantin Papakonstantinou for making our huge community to connect as one via his meditation session, to The Flying Seagull Project for bringing joy and magic to the children and to Anasa Cultural Center for drumming West African rhythms to entertain us. Last but not least, a big thank you to Mum Institute for hosting a wonderful art workshop offering the opportunity to the children to create their own colorful t-shirts and express their creativity during the event.

Special thanks to Flower Athens for offering pizzas and Δεσμός - Desmos for covering the refreshments for the event.
