In the former Yugoslavian countries there are many marginalized youth living in homes for children without parental care.
Our objective is to take small groups of these children from different national, religious and ethnic backgrounds and give those kids opportunities to build understanding and create bridges between themselves and to expand their vision of what it is possible to achieve in their own lives.
We believe that prejudices can be overcome by bringing young people together to share ideas and thoughts and take part in common activities. It is in this way that they recognize the things that connect them as human beings
We would like to provide mentoring opportunities to these children and to create lasting relationships between the homes and Rotary clubs from different regions.
This is a multi-year project with a pilot programme expected to take place in August 2021.
