Our Employability program enables self reliance and accelerates efforts towards a more inclusive society through employment. We believe that true, long-lasting integration for vulnerable groups can only be achieved when they are assimilated across social, political and economic strands of life. The fastest and most efficient way to do this is through permanent, meaningful employment.
Unemployment in Greece
It is well-known that the 2009 financial crisis hit Greece hard. Over 10 years later, the country is still struggling economically and has the highest general unemployment rate of all EU states. Sadly, unemployment in Greece is especially prevalent amongst the groups of people that it affects the most: those who need the foot in the door, the financial support and independence, the social interaction and cohesion.
More recently, Greece has been hit by a new crisis. Instability and war in the Middle East and Africa have given rise to one of the largest movements of populations in history, displacing over 5 million people. For a huge number of them, Greece is the first European country they encounter. Many choose to stay; many are forced to do so. Proper access to education, training and the job market is paramount for their livelihood, health and independence, but also crucially for their integration into Greek civic life.
