We are creating a culture where the dignity of the child is the absolute value

When a child is born, in addition to the family, he or she intersects with adults from different spheres. KINDERGARTEN SOC. SERVICES ORGANIZATIONS SUMMER CAMP CHURCH SCHOOL HOSPITAL

Spheres of the child’s interaction with society

We work so that in every sphere, there are adults able to ensure the child’s safety – prevent violence against them and/or respond to it effectively.

Directions of our work

We aim to create a safe environment for the child at all life stages, from birth until age 18. World statistics show that most violence children experience comes from people they know. Therefore, the institutions working with minors must care about the latters’ safety during childhood. They need to know how to prevent violence and identify children needing help. These are the health care, education and Church spheres.
