How does your donation help?
There are thousands of kids in Estonia who lack adequate emotional support. Your donation helps to provide support, role models and friendship to more children.
Our programme is for children who feel lonely and excluded due to a temporary crisis, long-term illness, difficult family relationships, special needs or any other reason. The programme is built on a one-on-one friendship and weekly meetings between the child and an older sister/brother. The multi-year programme entails undertaking fun and educational activities together and can lead to a beautiful friendship that lasts a lifetime.
Our volunteers are bright-eyed young people who are committed to the well-being of the children and who aim to bring more care and love to the world. All our volunteer Older Sisters and Brothers have received preparatory training. Our experience shows that a safe one-on-one friendship and supportive activities with a volunteer make for the best way to provide additional emotional support to a child. We support the development of a strong friendship through various training courses, covisions, joint events, individual counselling and much more.
