Association of Parents, Guardians and Friends of people with Autism, in Rethymno is the only active parent institution that provides support and education services to people with disabilities in the prefecture of Rethymnon with about 200 members.
The preparation of national and European programs networked us and gave us impetus to both institutions and society.
The project “WORK FOR EVERYONE” is implemented within the framework of the Active citizens fund program, with the Association of Parents, Guardians and Friends of People with Autism of Rethymno and partners IIEK Grant and the Norwegian University OSLO MET as implementing bodies. The € 12m Active Citizens fund is funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway and is part of the European Economic Area Financial Facility (EEA) for the period 2014-2021, known as EEA Grants.
The program aims to strengthen and enhance the viability of civil society and to highlight its role in promoting democratic processes, enhancing citizen participation in the public and defending human rights. The management of the Active citizens fund program for Greece has been jointly undertaken by the Bodossaki Foundation and SolidarityNow
