DAFNI VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTER  (DAFNI KEK) is an independent, non-profit training organization that primarily provides certified and/or subsidized vocational training within the framework of its management agreement with the Greek government but also with other organizations that apply non formal or continuing vocational training to combat social exclusion and unemployment. DAFNI KEK promotes social cohesion through an active participation approach. DAFNI KEK makes every effort to offer its trainees – unemployed or employees / employers form diverse backgrounds – information that may be important to their daily work or for enhancing their active participation in their local community. We also support the implementation of their strategic plans that prioritize overall organizational development. We have a wide range of facilities available for this purpose including various publications, a comprehensive documentation service, and e-monitoring services.

DAFNI KEK is based in Patras, state of Achaia, Western Greece and the main offices are located in Elaiochorion of Dytiki Achaia - a rural area with roma and underprivileged populations ( agricultural or domestic occupations).  It is ruled by a Board of Management which takes decisions on strategy, project development and local alliances.
