AMAKA NGO was founded in Athens in 2008 in order to support and assist vulnerable groups. AMAKA’s main activities focus on social problems.
AMAKA undertakes the design and implementation of relevant programs while at the same time, depending on the project, seeks the participation and cooperation of other organizations or people in order to implement its purposes with the aid of the most appropriate specialists in each sector, who share the same beliefs and concerns with AMAKA.
Our methodology involves the search for long-term subsidy programs and support from public or private organizations in order to realize our anticipated therapeutic work.
To carry out our activities we depend on the contribution of volunteers, sponsorships and donations from individuals and businesses, on cooperations with other NGOs and institutions in Greece and abroad as well as on European subsidy programs.
