What we do

In Symplexis, we strive for unleashing our society’s untapped potential so as to bridge the most persistent inequality gaps, combat violence and victimisation and find permanent solutions to the most demanding social challenges of our era. Symplexis’ team invests on social innovation and deploys gamechanging approaches for those most in need, building on strong long-term relationships with our partners across the globe.

Symplexis: a group of social and economic development professionals, with complementary skills and competences but common social values and principles.

Protecting and promoting human rights

Respect for fundamental rights within and outside the EU is key to the work of Symplexis and a main driving force of our people. Our activities promote individual dignity and self-empowerment so as to create equal opportunities, rights and obligations for every person in all essential walks of life. In practice, this means that we work with populations that face constant violation of their basic rights, such as discriminated women, children and elderly people, victims of violence and human trafficking, the LGBTQI community, Roma and unaccompanied minors, migrants and asylum seekers/ refugees. Our main principle is that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, hence we address each case as unique so as to meet each individual’s immediate and long-term needs particularly focusing on the fight against gender-based violence, which is becoming a shameful trend of modern societies. Our efforts focus on both preventing phenomena of human rights’ violations (having education and learning as the main relevant vehicle), as well as on supporting the persons having suffered such violations.

Promoting social and economic inclusion

Our team’s main objective is to reduce poverty and promote the social and economic integration of those most in need, focusing on marginalized groups and especially third country nationals who seek a better future within the EU. For this purpose, we utilize a variety of innovative methods and techniques that build on user-led approaches and promote active engagement and participation, acknowledging the importance of building a strong community, one that values diversity and multiculturalism at all (local, EU and international) levels. In this regard, our activities focus on labour market integration, civic participation and social cohesion through a wide variety of proactive initiatives that target from simple every day activities of social life (such as language and digital skills) to more complex, psychological and mental health issues.

Upskilling, capacity building and empowerment of vulnerable groups

We strongly believe that learning is not only a lifelong process, but also a fundamental right of every person, regardless of sex, age, gender, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation or any other social or personal characteristics. In this regard, one of our main pursuits is to promote a more inclusive educational system, one that invests on equal opportunities, participation and enrolment as vehicle to local and community integration, especially for those on the margins of society, on the basis of shared values and respect for fundamental rights.  For those reasons, we work together with our target groups so as to find sustainable solutions to deep-rooted societal problems and inequalities in education and learning. We first serve those with fewer opportunities, the so-called low-skilled disadvantaged people both by trying to redirect them to the formal education system and also by utilizing alternative paths for complementing their skills and competences. We alleviate their weaknesses and capitalize on their strengths through multitude skills-building programmes and activities in Greece, Europe and beyond.
