doValue Greece through its initiatives, within the framework of the Corporate Social Responsibility program #Life_Values actively supports the social needs of residents and the struggle of students on outlying islands in Greece to achieve equal opportunities in learning.

The program is implemented with the collaboration of a renowned civil society organization within the framework of numerous- actions that take place in outlying islands.

In the remote island of Donousa, the ExcellenSeas academic scholarship, sponsored by doValue, stands by the dream of academic studies of Irini Prasinou, one of the few female students of the region after her admission to the Athens University.

The ExcellenSeas academic scholarship has three pillars: financial assistance, provision of a mentor or scientific advisor and an internship. It aims to support children in their academic studies who come mainly from outlying Greek islands with a population of less than 2,000 inhabitants. Using the benefits of the scholarship, students can begin a new and important chapter in their student life during the four (4) years of their studies, empowered to achieve their goals.

"The scholarship gives me security for my academic and professional future. The advice, guidance and financial support provided by ExcellenSeas, supported by doValue enables me to meet my daily demands" said Irini Prasinou, the ExcellenSeas scholar supported by doValue.

"Since day one of its operation doValue Greece has set a goal: To return back to society through Corporate Social Responsibility actions part of the revenue generated by our people’s work. We want to give Irini all she needs to successfully complete her journey from Donousa to the University of Athens and achieve all her goals" said Tasos Panoussis, Chief Executive Officer at doValue Greece.

“We have achieved a very good number of students studying through the program. They are already 32 and this year we are reaching up to 40. Our goal is to have the capacity to cover all applications, but this can only be achieved with the support of our sponsors" said Evgenia Giannini, Chairman of the Board of ExcellenSeas.

The initiatives in Donousa are part of doValue Greece's #Life_Values Corporate Social Responsibility Program. The company has implemented a broad plan of Corporate Social Responsibility actions focusing on three pillars: Society - Environment - Health. At the same time, one of its main objectives is to stand by local communities, especially in areas of the country that must cope with shortcomings and weaknesses.
