There are 4 main problems that we are going to solve:

3. Insufficient supply for children and kids from social risk families for useful summer holidays
4. Lack of knowledge about sexual and reproductive health
Main activities – more volunteer involvement, organizing voluntary activities, training of peer educators, non-formal lessons in schools about reproductive health, trainings for volunteers and teachers about digital methods, creative thinking and improvisational theater techniques and Youth house renovation so we can do activities.

Project has finished and we are happy to look back at what we have done and receive! Throughout the project there have been more than 70 youngsters who were involved in planning and carrying out the project for more than 1000 children and youth! For many youngsters this was the first opportunity to go to the sponsors, to be a leader and take care of some activities, to plan a budget and to acquire new knowledge and skills that is useful doing voluntary work in organizations and in everyday life. This was a special project – we carry out a Youth day with a record number of participants, many youngsters have get new knowledge in trainings about digital methods and creativity, about reproductive health and in improvisational theatre workshop.

We are very happy for our project partner – Cesis Children and Youth centre – because without them the project wouldn`t be that good.

We are sure that our cooperation will continue and we will do great things together!
