Are you dreaming of starting your nonprofit organization, but you don’t know where to start?

Or maybe you started it, but it turns out that growing it and funding it is more complex than you thought.

Well, this episode might have the answers you need to start and grow your non-profit organization.

I’m really excited to talk to Melina Taprantzi, the founder of Wise Greece, a social entrepreneurship pioneer and non-profit organization.

Melina recently won an award from the United Nations, recognizing her as one of the seven women worldwide, whose activity significantly contributes to the achievement of the global sustainable development goals 2030.

Wise Greece has a double mission: they support small Greek food producers by promoting top quality Greek products through the sales of which they raise money and buy food in order to donate it to the people in need.

They cooperate with more than a hundred producers selling more than 2500 of their products. And they have distributed more than 50 tons of food to orphanages and soup kitchens across the country.
