Project description

At the Center we work with children from dysfunctional families and/or single parent families in which problems such as alcohol, addiction, unemployment, low economic status, physical and psychological violence are present. Children have educational problems and sometimes highly disordered behavior. Some of them had experienced very heavy emotional trauma. Children are relegated to the Center by school educators, social workers and legal guardians. The main aim of our programme is to create conditions of regular development for children in the atmosphere of safety and acceptance and to manage psychological trauma. In the day-care center we carry on various types of activities for children: intellectual, artistic or motor ones. Volunteers interested in taking part in service should fill the application: before 3 of June 2018.
