--- Quote ---Ιt takes a village and €233,000 to raise a child in Greece

It takes a village to raise a child, as the old African proverb goes. But what happens when you need to hire – and, of course, pay for – that village? It is currently estimated that it costs around €13,000 per year to raise a child in Greece.

In practice, a child in an average Greek family will have cost that family €233,000 by the time they turn 18.
