It is the first real investment of the Social Cooperative, not coming from the former Cooperative Therapeutic Units of the Leros State Hospital.

This project was for 65% financed by the Leader+ program. The total investment was 50.000€.

The project is aiming:

  1. the creation of new jobs for members of the A’category and B’category.
  2. the promotion and social recognition of the Social Cooperative.
  3. financial profits of the sales.
  4. the support and empowerment of the local society.
  5. the development and support of the primary sector, in particular the beekeeping.
  6. the promotion of the traditional products of the islands, based on the fact that Leros has excellent thyme honey in the sufficient quantities.

Until this workshop was established, the honey production lacked a certain level of standardization and promotion due to bad organization, the high costs, and that beekeeping is not the main activity of the producers.

The honey workshop, operating since 2004, employs 3 A’category employees (people with psychosocial problems) and 2 employees of B’category (mental health workers), while the turnover of the business is ranging from 4 to 6 months.
