We believe all children should grow up in a safe and loving environment

We work with over 20,000 children who live with family members and those living as orphans in state institutions across Eastern Europe. We work to show God's love to these children and provide them with the support they need to grow into responsible, educated adults.

Our projects include:

  • Out of school clubs - provide children with a hot meal, plus academic support to help them learn and grow in confidence.
  • Vocational training and scholarships - when young people graduate from school, we help them continue into either further education or learning a trade. Our ongoing support includes funding living costs, tuition fees and supplies or equipment they might need to complete their course. 
  • Dreambus  -  takes children out to gain recreational and educational experiences they would not other have. It includes outings to the capital city, museums, parks and restaurants. Most of the children we work with have never left their village and these experiences are vital to their social and academic learning.
  • Summer Camps  -  gives children the chance to be kids again. At the 10 day camps, children take part in sport, games, art and craft, and Bible study. They explore their creativity in comfort and safety, receiving counselling and emotional support from our specially trained co-ordinators and volunteers.
  • Emotional social curriculum  -  provides workshops to equip young people with the skills they need to find employment and live independently. It provides practical training where young people do things like go to a supermarket, learn how to manage a budget and support with making difficult choices or managing conflict.
  • Scholarships - supporting tertiary students to attend higher education and achieve their dreams.
  • Counselling and emotional support -  helps children manage emotions and cope with trauma.
  • Christian input - sharing the good news of Jesus with children through different medium including Bibles, puppet shows, radio and correspondence.
