This donation will help to implement measures of informal education for children/young people from socially vulnerable groups. Children/young people get involved in various educational activities – cultural activities, creative workshops, seminars and camps aimed to introduce them to a different social environment and motivate them for achieving further education and improvement of the quality of their life.
By involving children/young people in active participation in educational programs, seminars and other events, these children and young people change their perception of life, start to think about further education, profession and growth. Also their self-esteem and faith in their own abilities is raised, consequently, also their motivation to change and influence the quality of their life, without waiting for help from someone else.
A special photo story is created for each activity, thereby, ensuring transparency of donations.
