Symplefsi “Diaplous 2016” | Educational and Electronic Equipment for Schools on Islands in Border Regions
05 Jul '16

Every year the Symplefsi (+plefsi) group organizes a crossing of the Aegean with stops at islands in border regions, at each of which supplies and equipment are presented as gifts to schools, together with diagnostic tests with specialized doctors and nurses in many different areas, infrastructural works (such as, for example, desalination plants, multi-purpose sports fields, children’s playgrounds, etc.) and other grants to recipients in the sectors of education, culture, sport and the environment. The ultimate objective of the +plefsi is, as always, to strengthen and upgrade the living conditions of residents on the islands in Greece’s border regions.

Τhe Neraida Floating Museum funded the “Diaplous 2016”, focusing on the schools. Specifically, through the funding in question schools in the islands were upgraded with educational and electronic equipment (projectors, computers, photocopiers and scanners), furniture (bookshelves, tables, seating) as well as consumable items and educational games to support the work of educators. The choice of material was made after communication with the teachers at each school, evaluation and cross-checking with local authorities, parents’ and guardians’ associations, etc. so as to ensure maximal certainty of need for the material and its utilization by educational personnel.

“Diaplous 2016” lasted 11 days, during which 11 inflatable boats and an auxiliary vessel, with participation by 80 volunteers, visited 9 islands in border regions (Agathonisi, Arki, Kimolos, Levita, Lipsi, Patmos, Sikinos, Schinousa and Folegandros). Along with the gifts a number of recreational, cultural and informative actions were conducted, such as for example book presentations for children, an interactional children’s workshop in Human Relations, an intervention to discourage smoking by adolescents, a photographic exhibitions, Karagiozi performances, etc.
