Community Volunteering


Visits to Hamogelo tou Paidiou children’s home and ARSIS children’s center

Pinewood students visit our little friends at the Hamogelo tou Paidiou and Arsis every other Saturday. Our students give lots of love and build strong bonds with the children through creative activities, storytelling and simply playing and having fun.

«ΤΟ ΧΑΜΟΓΕΛΟ ΤΟΥ ΠΑΙΔΙΟΥ», is a non profit volunteer organisation that supports children and their every day problems. The organisation’s main concern is to protect children’s rights 365 days a year, to provide the basics for their physical, mental and emotional stability.

“ΑΡΣΙΣ” is an independept non-profit organization which supports youth and their rights.  Since 1992 it supports young people with centers  based in Athens, Thessaloniki, Volos and Larisa.

This is the fourth year our students visit the Hamogelo tou Paidiou and the first year that we have visited the Arsis center. Students happily give up a little of their time and receive lots of hugs in return. The children are looking forward to the visits from Pinewood students and they come running for a big hug.
