Fostering partnerships with other charitable foundations and organisations in Greece and abroad is of key importance to the Bodossaki Foundation. In this context, the following programmes are currently underway:
Points of Support: Small Grants, Big Ideas
This programme is a joint initiative of John S. Latsis Public Benefit Foundation, Hellenic Hope and the Bodossaki Foundation to support innovative social initiatives with a focus on small-scale activities with maximum social impact. Having completed two funding cycles already, the 3rd cycle of the programme was announced in March 2018. We are keen to welcome two new funders in this initiative, Kapetan Vasilis & Karmen Konstantakopoulos Foundation as well as A.G. Leventis.
Get Into: Working with Prince’s Trust International in Greece
Prince’s Trust International supports young people. It was founded by the Prince of Wales in November 2015. Since then, he has shared his successful programmes and experience with strategic partners and partners in countries outside the United Kingdom. Prince’s Trust, for more than 40 years, has helped more than 870,000 young people transform their lives in the UK.
In Greece, Prince’s Trust International has chosen the Bodossaki Foundation as its strategic partner for the implementation of the Get Into programme, together with S.E. knowl for Education and Lifelong Learning. The programme itself fosters collaboration with large companies in Greece. So far in 2018, the Prince’s Trust International Get Into programme, in partnership with the Bodossaki Foundation and knowl Social Enterprise, has found jobs for 29 young people with Vodafone, Goldair Handling and AVIN. The 4th circle is ongoing in cooperation with Aegean Airlines.
