Greeks all over the globe have always had a strong sense of community

Greeks all over the globe have always had a strong sense of community, however the years of the crisis have proved that is not only a saying. You can find proof of that in the above video that describes “The Hellenic Initiative”, founded in 2012 by “members of the global Greek and philhellene communities who were compelled to respond to the worsening economic crisis and inspired to help shape Greece’s long-term recovery”.

The video shows through interviews and beautiful footage what the initiative is and what it actually offers to the country in order to overcome the difficulties of financial hardship and recession.

The Hellenic Initiative works in three axes:

1. Crisis relief, through substantial financial support to Greek NGO’s like SOS-Children’s Villages or Praksis.

2. Entrepreneurship, though entrepreneurship education programs and awards

3. Economic development though an investment fund and a fellowship offered to greek professionals.

The video was created by greek motion pictures creative group White Room (whiteroom.gr).
