Since March 2016 we are feeding the refugees who are in Greece. During these three years we have distributed more than 1.000.000 portions and to prepare these portions we have enjoyed the assitance of more than 500 volunteers.
We were working in Chios and Athens, since February 2019 we are cooking and distributing 1.300 portions in Lesbos. We will continue working as long as refugees need help.
(Actually we are not working in Ethiopia) In 2011 we started the Zaporeak Project in Ethiopia, in Wukro, which was our first project. We have worked with the White Father Angel Olaran and the project has three bases: start up a Hotel and Catering School, the creation of a cannery and the improvement of existing cheese factory. We continue working on this project and we are about to send all the materials.
The lack of knowledge of the population about nutrition and about how they should be fed properly, as well as the absence of adequate equipment and notions about storage techniques and food processing, is one of the strategic bottom lines that is approached by the project ZAPOREAK.
Furthermore, the ZAPOREAK Project aims to launch a Hotel and Catering School in Wukro, as well as the development of income generating activities in the agri-food sector, such as the offer of paid training services and the start-up of tradeing activities.
This will contribute to the development of the region from the point of view of the growth of its economic and industrial activities, providing a market of the products that are generated, as well as jobs to the population.
