Lefteris Arapakis

“What Greece needs is people who create solutions for themselves”.  And that is exactly what Lefteris and George did by creating “Enaleia”, the first professional fishing school in Greece!

“Enaleia” is training young, unemployed people in the profession of fisherman and fishing captain and then connects them with potential employers. It is a way to create a lot of much needed new places of employment and adding value for the shipowners and the captains who will work with trained crews. At the same time, the training and the new crews promote sustainable fishing practices and the protection of the marine environment.

“Enaleia’s” training program has a duration of six months and includes theory and the necessary practical training with professional fishermen.  With our organization’s support, “Enaleia” has also developed an e-learing platform that enables prospects to attend theoretical courses at a distance and try the practical side upon their completion.

At only the age of 23, Lefteris Arapakis and George Tsiolis, graduates of the Economic and the Agriculture University of Athens respectively, dared to create a business that not only reinforces one of Greece’s most important primary sectors, but also has a positive social impact! We are very proud to be supporting “Enaleia’s” further growth and development!
