For obvious reasons we do not disclose the portraits of the children with their names. Nevertheless, we would like to introduce them, so you can better picture who they are and why your support will be greatly appreciated.

Each one of them has his personality and centers of interest and each one needs tailored support to overcome his personal challenges.

Our work is not only to help them succeed at school and to become great citizens but also to provide a haven, away from the turmoil of life, and to help them open up to a brighter future.
