Zoodohos Pigi

Zoodohos Pigi was founded in 2011 with the aim to satisfy people in need and NGOs through in-kind and cash donations. Zoodohos Pigi’s activities are: financial support to people in need, donations to nonprofits mainly in the field of health and education, and the Mousikoparea Music Therapy Program. Zoodohos Pigi functions both as a foundation granting donations and as a nonprofit organization designing and implementing programs. Mousikoparea Music Therapy Program was launched as a pilot program in July 2016 and involves the provision of music therapy sessions to care homes. Music therapy is an evidence-based clinical intervention that addresses the cognitive, emotional, physical, mental and social needs of the elderly.

Program Expansion

The grant regards the expansion of the Mousikoparea Program so as to include 7 nonprofit care homes, increasing the Program’s recipients to 18. Each of the 7 additional care homes is located in a different city - Attica, Thessaloniki, Patra, Edessa, Lefkada, Syros, Crete. The therapists chosen are unemployed professionals. Music therapy students also attend the sessions in order to gain valuable exposure to the benefits of music therapy.
