For the modification of the ground floor of ELEPAP’s building in Ioannina to create three new classrooms, in response to the increasing needs of children and adults with special needs.
The Hellenic Society for the Protection and Rehabilitation of Disabled Children (ELEPAP) was established in 1937 in Athens. Today, it has 6 branches across Greece, reaching out to over 1,600 disabled children a year. The Ioannina branch of ELEPAP opened in 1981 and currently serves 110 children with special needs. It is an open care center, which aims to create the appropriate conditions in order to treat, train, rehabilitate and integrate into society children up to 16 years old with cerebral palsy, psychomotor retardation, various syndromes and pervasive developmental disorders. Currently, it runs two types of programs: early intervention programs for preschool children and creative activities for adults.
