Deadline: ASAP (by 30th of November2018)
Duration: 12 months
All costs are covered by Erasmus + Programme

The project takes place in PIKPA- an institution for children and young adults with disabilities in Voula, Athens. Volunteers accompany the children in their daily life by a great diversity of activities (handcrafts, stimulation, cooking, swimming, excursions…) !

The name PAAPAV stands for Therapy and Rehabilitation Center for Children in Attica, Voula . It is a state institution that hosts about 70 disabled children and young adults. Inside PAAPAV the majority of the residents have both physical and mental disabilities ranging from moderate to severe but there are also some children with average intelligence. Most of the kids have been abandoned by their parents and are left to the full care of the institution. A big team that consists of nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, special education teachers, social workers, doctors and psychologists are in charge of the residents. To facilitate the integration of these children into society once they grow up, PAAPAV is also running a hostel and two sheltered apartments in a residence outside the institution. Unfortunately, although the last few years many improvements have been made and the current administration tries to offer to the children as much as possible, many of the them especially the more severe cases, still stay with very little stimulation during their free time, becoming thus, heavily institutionalised. For these reasons, PAAPAV gladly accepts volunteers as these are able to give the children extra attention and stimulation.
