ANKAA Project is a not-for-profit organisation, founded in 2017, that works with communities affected by forced migration and/or unemployment. 

ANKAA’s hybrid model of a social enterprise connects its education programs, focused on social inclusion, with its revenue-generating activities of creating sustainable products under fair and ethical working conditions. 


ANKAA Project strengthens communities affected by forced migration and/or unemployment, by offering a quality program in tailoring coupled with language skills and employability support. Our program is aimed at social inclusion and employability for decent work opportunities in Greece and in Europe. 

Our revenue-generating activities offer job opportunities to experienced workers and/or former ANKAA students. Our products reflect and promote sustainability for the people, the project and the planet. We create long lasting and custom-made fashion products implementing responsible production and fair trade.

The project and its partners advocate for social inclusion, equal opportunities and a celebration of cultures and skills.
