NGOs for Change This is a proposal for LC to LC Cooperation
About the “NGO for Change” project
This project is about bringing international volunteers willing to impact non-corporate entities in order to be able to survive on a long term basis and grow in a sustainable way. The aim is for the NGOs to initiate acting in a healthier way and start being self-sustained. In this project we co-operate with 3 NGOs of Athens and the Career and Entrepreneurship Unit of the Athens University of Economics and Business. The intern during the internship will work in general on the creation of an organizational plan for long term development of the NGO, creation of a network for partnering with other NGOs, raising awareness of the NGOs campaigns or activities, educating the NGOs overall management about hard and soft skills, developing and carrying out promotional activities, benchmarking on other similar organizations, fundraising support and communication/marketing plan.
As it is mentioned above, the NGOs in Greece are not very developed and self sustainable in terms of finance. As a result, they are not capable of affording an intern by covering the cost of the GCDP. So, as AIESEC country it is our responsibility to support the NGOs in Greece. However, the main challenge that we have to deal with is the lack of funds in order to cover our operational cost and the accommodation of the intern.

About Athens Athens is the historical capital of Europe, with a long history, dating from the first settlement in the Neolithic age. In the 5th Century BC (the “Golden Age of Pericles”) – the culmination of Athens’ long, fascinating history – the city’s values and civilization acquired a universal significance. Over the years, a multitude of conquerors occupied Athens, and erected unique, splendid monuments - a rare historical palimpsest. In 1834, it became the capital of the modern Greek state and in two centuries since it has become an attractive modern metropolis with unrivalled charm. A large part of the town’s historical center has been converted into a 3-kilometre pedestrian zone (the largest in Europe), leading to the major archaeological sites (“archaeological park”), reconstructing – to a large degree – the ancient landscape.
