So, here’s a little information about the group of people.

The Voluntary Group of Zakynthos was founded about four and half years ago. The initiator Dionysios Nikolopoulos, along with other members Valia Melikoki, Petros Nikolopoulos, Louise Morfis and Kasi Nikolopoulou decided to group together and promote our home by doing actions around the Island to make it better.  The idea of the group was to spread the message and get people active, those who love our Island home and want to make our island home more humane. The first year was a difficult one as Volunteering in Zakynthos in this form was not heard of. However, the team continued throughout the years and overcame its difficulties. Today, awareness of volunteering has become very well recognised throughout the Island and because of this team the message that our home is worth caring for as been echoed arcoss the Island. Citizens and visitors to our Island have become more active and have supported the team in many of its actions.


The Voluntary Group of Zakynthos has in its assets many actions, inside and outside the city, has helped our community with ideas for a more humane island, while it continues to help people with an emphasis on vulnerable groups, offering them food, gift certificates and many other things. The team try to reach those wherever needed.
