A new initiative undertaken by doValue Greece forms part of its #AxiesZois (Life Values) corporate responsibility programme, which includes initiatives focusing on people and the value of human life.

The project concerns the energy upgrade of the ARSIS (Association for the Social Support of Youth) NGO Unaccompanied Minor Guesthouse in Oraiokastro. This initiative is part of the ongoing efforts to actively demonstrate the commitment doValue Greece has undertaken to consistently stand by the community and its needs.

The energy upgrade involved the replacement of 35 door and window frames in the main guesthouse. These were four-season energy-certified constructions, offering efficient operation all year round, in line with all the Building Energy Performance Regulation (KENAK) standards, and with a coefficient below 2. This way they ensure optimal temperature within the building and save valuable energy. They also contribute to upgrading the quality of life of the children living there, offering them greater security and soundproofing, and a safe living environment.

Note that the ARSIS Unaccompanied Minor Guesthouse in Oraiokastro, which hosts up to 21 children aged 6-18, was established in 2009. This is the first building upgrade project of this magnitude since then. doValue chose to carry out this project after talking with the Guesthouse officials and concluding that it was a top and immediate priority.
