was formed in 2000 as a citizens' initiative, based on an
Establishing Declaration co-signed by citizens from all
regions of Greece, where is stated:
"We, the citizens who co-sign this declaration, are
active members in the area of Social Development, and have
taken actions in the field of fighting phenomena such as
poverty and social exclusion.
We have worked under the frame of Positive actions that
support social inclusion and equal participation of Rom,
as stuff members of Public Services and Local Administration
and as active citizens who would like to declare in an active
way our solidarity towards our fellow citizens who live
under conditions of complete exclusion".
In 2001, «OikoKoinonia» becomes a civil
non-profit association (the legal framework under which
Non-Governmental Organizations function in Greece), aiming
at taking action in the field of social intervention.
