Our philosophy

We are a group of people who believe that our public school system enriches experiences, shapes values, nurtures characters and provides knowledge to the pupils who will one day form our society. Our mission is to upgrade the environment in which they grow up and study by mobilizing the community around them. A public school’s community is made up of its pupils, their teachers, their parents as well as the neighborhood around it. Our job as Ergotaxio is to provide materials and equipment that public schools need to upgrade their infrastructure. In return, we ask that the community, which surrounds these pupils, complete the required work. All of us have something to offer. All of us can participate in turning our school into a pleasant and functional environment. Some will offer their expert professional work, other will help us tidy up, but our effort will be communal and we will all be proud of it. Our goal is not to replace the role of the state. Our mission is to mobilize every neighborhood around its public school to get to embrace it and make it its own. Our communal work can change the environment in our schools and enrich the experience of pupils. It teaches all of us who participate, and specially the young pupils, that we have the power to improve the conditions we live in, we can, through communal work, offer something of importance to society and that everyone can contribute in changing our life for the better. Mostly, we all get to respect our living environment by learning to appreciate, respect, and love all that we have participated in changing. And that together we can do a lot more than any of us can do on their own.

  • I want to help

Ergotaxio expresses its gratitude towards all our sponsors, without whom we would never be able to support any school.

“We mobilize our neighborhood, we support our schools.”

Public Schools of Athens

“We mobilize our neighborhood, we support our schools”

Public Schools constitute the fundamental cornerstone of our society: it is the first place where mist of our children come into contact with their community society; it is the environment in which they develop their personalities and receive their education.

It is our obligation to protect and support schools through collective action and whatever contribution we can each afford.

We mobilize our neighborhoods, we gather at our schools and work towards making it them more functional as well as more beautiful. We paint, we tidy up, we clean the classrooms and surrounding area, all the while, having a great time.

I want to help!
