e) Projects financed from the net-profits of the “Ikarian Days 2016” and ideas for further projects In 2017 we have spent money to support families in financial difficulties and at the beginning of the school year 2017/2018 we bought school material for pupils in financial difficulties, too.
Furthermore we initiated an environmental project “Let’s replace plastic bags by cotton bags” in all primary schools on Ikaria, donating 500 cotton bags and pencils to the pupils. With this project the kids are learning to re-use bags and to protect the environment.
From the net-income of the “Ikarian Days 2018” we would like to continue our work as mentioned above and finance further environmental, social and cultural projects.
Thanks for all your support.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the event and we will be happy to meet you on the dance floor.
All the best.
