Maarja Village “Let’s create employment opportunities for special-needs people!”
How does your donation help?
Maarja Village is committed to improving the lives of special-needs people by giving them the opportunity to work in our workshops in Maarja Village, Põlva and Tartu every day. They can work in the clay, crafts, wood, textile and home economy workshops as well as in the area of forestry and landscaping.
For example, a donation of 5 euros gives a disabled person the opportunity to make a great soft toy with the help of an instructor, 10 euros gives them the opportunity to make a wooden trivet.
We can divide our activities between four major areas – living in a common household; working in the household, in protected work centres and outside Maarja Village; rehabilitation; and the provision of vocational training with Räpina School of Horticulture.
Started in 2001 together with parents and teachers of Maarja school children and Tartu Toome Rotary Club, 38 special-needs people live and work now in Maarja Village year-round. 22 young people with special needs are learning to become assistant gardeners at Räpina School of Horticulture and 10 disabled people who live outside the village come to work in the workshops every day.
The organization is included on the list of income tax incentive non-profit organizations and the donors will get back the income tax paid from their donation and the donations made by companies are tax-free (Estonian Income Tax Act § 49). Read more about taxes: Donating and taxes.
