A group of young people with and without disability, who have studied aboard or rehabilitated aboard, having the knowledge of the situation in Greece regarding the lack of specialized services for people with spinal injuries, decided the foundation of NGO Alli Opsi, which operates Training Camps for people with spinal injuries on the basis of Independent Living and peer support.
