Photos from holidays, songs by the campfire, trips to the ZOO or a hike to the lookout tower… Do you find it ordinary? Children from institutional care do not. They need to make memories, they need attention to help them develop harmoniously just like their peers do. Our foundation helps them to enjoy trips, great leisure activities and holidays as they should be – not to be deprived of the beautiful formative experiences that everyone cherishes for a lifetime. Leisure programs and stays allow the children to spend time without the presence of aunts and uncles – with whom they are in contact all year round – and find new friends outside the care home.
“I would like to thank you for a beautifully prepared celebration for my 18th birthday. I’ve never enjoyed anything like this. I am so glad that you are helping us and doing everything you can to give us the best time,” wrote Vašek.
“We don’t want to go home, we want to be at the camp forever!” wrote the children from the Children’s Care Home in Krnsko.
“Auntie, could we stay here and go to the local kindergarten?” five-year-old Peta called from his weekend stay.
It is not just about education, promoting independence and developing skills. It is also about feeling content, unique and self-confident. It will help children live a fulfilling life and start their own stable family in the future. This is exactly the chance children receive with the gift of a happy childhood.
Together we will move the world and help children from institutional care to enjoy the experiences that are part of a fulfilled, happy childhood!
