Volunteerism is one of the most important elements of Democracy because it inspires engagement and giving. In order to remain as such it should be motivated by Solidarity
instincts which allow critical reflection of the people involved in a lifelong learning approach and mentality. DAFNI KEK as a non formal education entity is dedicated to the opportunities for learning that are accessible by all – especially to those that these opportunities are
limited and they feel excluded and vulnerable. Especially in the current context of crisis sharing with others, at least the hope for a better life, is crucial, as it does not only mean expecting change but making it happen. Through acquiring knowledge, skills and a growth mindset, the staff and educators embrace volunteerism as an attitude and in line with their professionalism.
What we want to communicate is that Volunteerism is the integral essence of the educational role independently if this is applied by professionals or non professional citizens. Volunteerism is the value behind the understanding on the role of the citizen who applies the knowledge and reflects on the current status with a vision towards a better society for all.
