The Greek Homeless Football Team was set up in in 2006 and made its debut appearance at the 2007 Homeless World Cup. Diogenes NGO was founded in 2010 to coordinate the “Kick out Poverty” project as well as other activities aimed at supporting socially excluded people, and to continue the work of the Greek Homeless Football Team.

Based in Athens, but with activities also running in other parts of Greece, Diogenes NGO focus mainly on homeless people, people living below the poverty line, people in substance abuse rehabilitation, asylum seekers, and illegal immigrants. The organisation coordinates a football programme for these groups, as well as other activities, under the umbrella of the “Kick out Poverty” (Goal sti Ftohia) project, which encourages social inclusion through sport. Additionally, they aim to raise public awareness of the issue of homelessness and to promote active involvement in activities that combat social exclusion.
