Our Purpose

Our Goals For Economic Wellbeing 

The Solidarity Center "Nestoras" provides direct assistance for people as they try to feed their families and find a safe place to live, and we work to improve livelihoods opportunities for long - short term economic wellbeing.

  • We are ensuring that people in crisis areas have what they need to survive - including food, water, shelter and basic household items - without falling into debt or resorting to desperate measures.
  • We are ensuring that people resettled in Greece have what they need to rebuild their lives and grow their assets.

How we can help in that:

  • Assisting people to identify realistic, achievable career paths that have the potential to offer a living wage;
  • Ensuring people have information about the job market and requirements for their specific fields;
  • Ensuring people have and can maintain good credit, and that they have an understanding of more advanced concepts of their rights.

We ensure that people can become self-sufficient by engaging in safe and decent work and by managing and saving their resources

How we can help in that:

  • Providing business-skills training for in-demand jobs and strengthening connections in local labor markets so that prospective employers can more easily find employees with the skills they need;
  • Encouraging new entrepreneurs and helping local businesses to grow through mentorship, training, technical support.
  • Addressing barriers to employment for people resettled in Greece including English-Greek language and computer skills, childcare and access to transportation.

We ensure that women have the decision-making power to safely use and control resources
How we can help in that:

  • Providing women with equitable access to information, skills training and markets so that they can meet their basic needs and generate income and assets

  • Working with governments, businesses and local nonprofit organizations to encourage and actively promote women's safe economic empowerment.
