Family and child

Since 2002, we’ve been providing direct services to children in risk of family abandonment, labour exploitation, children affected by their parents’ work migration and remigrant children, and from 2013 to children with imprisoned parents.

Between 2009 and 2012, almost 1000 vulnerable old people, lacking family support because of work migration, have been socially, psychologically and legally assisted to strengthen the relationships with their family members, mediate the relationship with public authorities, overcome crises and getting involved in socializing activities.

The training of professionals focused on the following themes: working with victim children, family therapy, assessment of sexual aggressors; removing children from institutions/placement centres, the consequences of separating children from their parents who left to work abroad; caring for the children affected by migration and identifying the needs and the institutional resources for the children left behind because their parents left to work abroad, preventing alcohol abuse; working with children with imprisoned parents.

Among the social and advocacy campaigns we mention: ”About children, without violence!”, ”European allowances. It’s your child’s right!”; ”Take care of your children wherever you are!”; ”Don’t forget the old people around you!”; ”Sometimes tomorrow is too late. Give up now!”; ”My parent is in prison. Why do you convict me for his/her deeds?”; ”Putting sentences on the destiny of innocent children is unjust!”.
