Provides an educational program for children in institutions to ensure safety through hand washing and supports schools in 10 small islands of Greece, in collaboration with My market.
Sarantis Group, faithful to its commitment to support the Greek society, continues its CSR actions for collective safety and health, through its brand Noxzema, which is a synonym of protection, care and reliability. Focusing this time on children, the Group joins forces with My market and jointly supports the organization Agoni Grammi and the Mum Institute for the implementation of an educational program regarding the health care of children living in institutions, through the hand washing. At the same time, it offers support to the schools of ten small islands of Greece, donating soap bars covering their needs for a whole year.
In this educational context, a series of visits to institutions will follow to inform and educate the children living there in order to help them link daily hygiene with health and virus prevention, making hand washing a fun habit. Children will learn how germs grow and how they can be transmitted by dirty hands. They will also receive practical advice on the steps needed for effective hand washing, frequency, and alternative protection if soap and water are not available.
In addition, apart from providing education and awareness to protect children through personal hygiene, Noxzema offers practical support to children in the border area of Greece, providing, through donation, schools in 10 small islands of our country with soap bars to cover of their needs for a year. The donation is addressed to the public schools in Heraklion, Donoussa, Schinoussa, Koufonisia, Agios Efstratios, Astypalea, Halki, Oinousses, Agathonisi and Anafi.
The new CSR action carried out with the support of Noxzema followed the brands series of product donations of hand cleaning items in the organizations "Doctors of the World", "Ark of the World", as well as the offer of personal hygiene items in the institutions "The Smile of the Child" , "Shelter of Love & Support", "Athens Nursing Home" and "Sunshine", for a year, at a time when these kind of needs are of outmost importance.
The organization Agoni grammi implements the largest educational & cultural programs in border areas of Greece. The goal of the programs is equal access to education and culture for all, regardless of their place of residence. Since 2007, more than 1,100 visits have been made to 95 islands and villages during the winter. Its activities include interactive experiences, training workshops, lectures, exhibitions, library enrichment, medical exams, theatrical performances, film screenings, concerts and donations. The programs are aimed primarily at children, without excluding adults.
The Mum Institute is a charity initiative for social responsibility and contribution, started by the Mum Social Club of ceramics, books and food. The Mum Institute consists of the city's artistic and creative scene: artists, chefs, architects, curators, designers and many others join forces for a good cause and aspire to help communities and vulnerable groups in need. In collaboration with the Social Welfare Center of the Attica Region, the Mum Institute undertook feeding and educational activities for 30 adolescent girls living in the "Playground of Agia Varvara". Activities include cooking, ceramic, artistic expression, architecture, yoga and circular gymnastics seminars, as well as the construction of a collective vegetable garden.
