Bwin, as part as its social responsibility program, decided to partially replace the old equipment of “Theotokos” Foundation’s professional kitchen, used as a vocational training laboratory.
The Foundation, which is part of the Union “Together for Chilrden”, aims to provide special education and therapy services to preschool children aged 2,5 – 5 years old (early intervention) and to teenagers aged 14 – 20 years old with developmental delays, developmental intellectual disorders and autism spectrum disorders. Additionally, vocational training and rehabilitation are provided to young adults aged 20 – 35 years, while family environments are supported and intervention is implemented when necessary. All these, for every individual to be able to live by their own means and to be able to find a job.
The fully renovated kitchen-laboratory now has new state of the art equipment. That will allow young people with developmental intellectual disorders and autism spectrum disorders to work under real-life conditions and prepare themselves for their integration in society and work.
They are trained to make savory and sweet food, which are then delivered to the Foundation’s canteen for the catering of all trainees. “Bwin’s contribution in renewing the kitchen equipment is essential to the proper functioning of the laboratory”, said Nektaria Sifaki, head of Vocational Training of the Foundation.
Bwin supports the work of the Union “Together for Children” as an integral part of its corporate social responsibility strategy program titled “bwincares”.
