KMOP is pleased to announce the launch of the “FamilEU: Family Training to Support their Marginalized and Disadvantaged Members” project in collaboration with CARDET from Cyprus, KTP from the Czech Republic and other partners from Italy, Slovenia, Austria, and Spain.

KMOP, in the frame of the European Lifelong Learning project titled "ValidVol: validation of key competences in voluntary service organisations", participated in the international training seminar which took place in Linz, on the 21st and 22nd of January 2015. The seminar aimed at the training of experienced volunteers. In total, twenty five participants, coming from Austria, Greece, Italy, Spain and U.K, shared their thoughts on volunteering and were properly trained so as to become "master validators". The master validators will support the volunteers who will participate in the ValidVol validation process.

On the 28-29 April 2014 COFACE and KMOP, in close cooperation with the Hellenic Presidency of the EU, organized the conference "Families in the Crisis - Finding work-life balance in difficult economic context" Mr. Laszlo Andor, Commissioner for employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion opened the conference by highlighting the priorities of intervention policy measures that have to be taken for families and certain mionority groups. As a whole, the event was  a great opportunity to foster exchange between Greek and other European civil society organisations and key research institutions and experts about the effects of the crisis on families, as well about realistic suggestions on how the caring of households between men and women could be achieved in times of crisis. More than 100 people participated in the event and exchanged views in round table discussions.
