The initiative | Young Greeks | Greek Legacy Scholarship

Re-inspiring Greece
from the Youth Up!

The initiative driving the sale of our exquisite Extra Virgin Olive Oil has been planned to answer two questions:

  1. Given that currently 54% of Greece's youth are unemployed, WHAT can we do to help?
  2. Given that more and more Greeks are leaving the country in search of a better life abroad, HOW can we help young Greeks stay in touch with the land of their forefathers, their heritage, and their history?
