Thanks to this support, members of our team, accompanied by pouched Bigla, Lulu, Hiona and Blackie will find themselves in beautiful Ikaria, this time attending to the needs of high-schools proviing information and interactive education to students of junior high and high, but also to students of the special school of Evdilos.
Four formerly stray, halfbred dogs, just like the many we see all around us daily, adopted and trained today will meet the students many of which were still in primary school when we were again on the island in 2011. It will be very interesting to see what they recall from back then and if they have put this knowledge into practice.
Participating volunteers: Athena Papazoglou, Frosso Matsouka, George Liarikos, Ageliki Sideri and Christina Economou.
