Roots Research Center NGO is a Greek organization that advocates and promotes the rights of children in alternative care and the rights of adult adoptees. It is a member of the Eurochild network and National Coordinator of the Opening Doors Campaign for Europe’s Children.
The organization was founded in 1999 in Athens and originally focused on the rights of adult adoptees and supported their search for their biological roots. The experience gained in this field led the organization to opened up its scope of work towards functions that support deinstitutionalization in Greece. Since 2004 the organization actively promotes the rights of children in alternative care and children in high risk families.
