Who do we help?
Why do we help abandoned and disadvantaged children? Because we believe that every child deserves to spend his or her childhood and formative years in a loving and safe family environment. Unfortunately, this is not always possible. Sometimes, for reasons beyond the family’s control, children benefit from growing up outside of their families. In these circumstances, we aim to give them the care and opportunities necessary to help them thrive in a loving and supporting setting. Additionally, quite often, helping parents means helping children. That’s why we’ve defined the following ten areas of assistance to distribute our donors’ funds, and through which are able to are improve the lives of many at-risk children.
…because no one can replace mom!
Sometimes due to unexpected pregnancy or circumstances beyond a young mother’s control, she may be left struggling to cope with her pregnancy or newborn. However, with the right help at the right time, she can become a loving and caring mother regardless of her background.
…because hardship doesn’t have to mean splitting up a family.
When parents love their children and want to provide for them yet lack the resources to do so, it is tearing the family apart purely for social reasons is never the right answer.
…because improving the lives of mothers means giving their children a better future.
We support mothers to help them rebuild their lives upon leaving the shelter home, teach them how to plan and manage the family budget, and how to avoid cumulating debts.
…for a better chance to succeed in life and create their own happy family.
Because children who grow up in a family environment have a better chance at succeeding in life and creating their own happy family than those who grow up in institutional care.
…because every child deserves love and needs to grow up in a safe, caring, accepting family environment.
And even if their biological family fails them, abandoned children can still find people with big hearts who would give them a loving foster home.
…because unfortunately, some children have to live through more than they can bear.
The number of child abuse cases is on the rise. Speaking up is not easy, but it is necessary to make sure the children know where to ask for help. Specialized psychotherapists help mistreated and sexually abused children through victim hotlines and websites, offering assistance and helping them to reclaim their happy childhood.
…because the orphanage teddy bear is simply not enough for a happy childhood.
Children from care homes lack close and exclusive relationships, undivided attention, and engaging experiences that shape a fulfilled childhood.
…because each person has a unique potential and deserves to be supported in their dreams and plans.
Investing in the education of disadvantaged young people is the best investment for their future.
…because the early life emotional deprivation leaves scars in the fragile child’s soul, wounds that take a lifetime to heal.
An unhappy childhood can last a lifetime, and early life emotional deprivation, separation from family, loss of support and collapse of the world as you have known can leave scars in a fragile child’s soul – wounds that take a lifetime to heal. Psychotherapy helps children cope with these experiences.
… because everyone deserves support to realize their potential.
Whilst young people in institutional care do not suffer material hardship, they lack the love and role models of their family and also an opportunity to gain practical experience. We help them to find their feet and successfully start their productive life.
