Goals: Preparation and implementation of programmes that develop innovative methods in the social sphere.
Target group: Children and adolescents of social risk groups
Conceptual bases of our activity:
1. Work with the complete spectrum of problems in the area of family and childhood – from developing and implementing practical projects that aid “street” children to work in schools with programmes to prevent drug addiction among children and adolescents, in order to track not only progress in solving problems, but also the interrelations between the origins of these problems;
2. A multifaceted approach, which takes into account the social, educational, psychological, and ethical problems that we try to resolve;
3. Successive work on the problem which proceeds in stages: creating innovative model projects; working out a methodological basis while simultaneously collecting statistical data; developing and systematising the information obtained; propagating methods and approaches on the basis of acquired experience with the aim of introducing them into governmental structures.
