What I can see

Shedia magazine is the only street magazine and aims to support and develop employment prospects for homeless and socially excluded people. “Diogenes NGO” is behind this project and it has been organizing a series of relevant actions since its establishment. The public becomes more aware of issues related to poverty, social exclusion and homelessness. Shedia, however, does not focus on the problem, but on the solution. The magazine is sold by people in need, homeless and socially excluded people, which brings society closer to them and a positive interaction is developed, always within the context of respect and dignity. It is sold in Athens and Thessaloniki.

What I can't see

Diogenes NGO has received over 20 Greek and international awards and distinctions, is a member of the Hellenic Network for the right to Shelter and Housing, member of the international community Planeterra Foundation and founding member of the International Network of Social Tours. Shedia magazine is also a member of the International Network of Street Papers. According to a survey by the consulting company Deloitte, the magazine’s contribution was significant for the beneficiaries’ coverage of basic needs, their acquisition of knowledge and skills, their socialization and reintegration. Moreover, the survey showed that the magazine’s readers participate more and more actively in issues concerning society.
