The National Observatory for Child Well-being, of "The Smile of the Child," aims to record child well-being in Greece in a multidimensional manner.


Every year, the organization records and maps the well-being of children both at the local and national levels. Thereafter, public policies are proposed to improve their well-being through innovative decision-making tools.


Based on the findings of the observatory, “The Smile of the Child”:

• Plans services and actions to deal with child poverty.

• Uses the records of specific needs (quantitative, qualitative, and geographical) of children and their families to effectively intervene and develop targeted solutions to their problems.

• Informs competent bodies, aiming at their intervention and planning similar actions.


The website of the National Observatory for Child Well-being ( ) provides free longitudinal records of the child well-being, which can be used for research by local and academic bodies.
