KMOP is a Social Action and Innovation Centre, with more than 40 years of accumulated experience in supporting disadvantaged groups. Founded in 1977, KMOP is one of the oldest NGOs in Greece.
In a rapidly changing world where existing theories and ideologies cannot give answers to the contemporary problems, our scope is to contribute actively by developing and implementing a variety of tools, programmes and policies. Apart from direct provision of services through decentralised community based facilities, counseling and educational services, we are active in scientific research and in the provision of capacity building to public authorities and CSOs. Our partners reflect our global nature as we work across countries and across sectors. We are extremely passionate about what we do and what we achieve.
In KMOP, we are all about kindling a better world. A world based on sustainable development, social growth and individual well-being.
