Objectives: Providing hygiene products, diapers, and sweets for "Shelter for children and youth of the city of Novi Sad" Republic of Serbia
Our aim was to provide the Shelter beneficiaries in Novi Sad, Serbia with the necessary resources, such as laundry detergents, fabric softeners, baths, but also baby diapers, as well as sweets.
About the Shelter for Children and Youth
Shelter for children and youth involved in living and/or working on the streets in Novi Sad started operating on February 23, 2010. The Shelter for children and youth is a daily social protection service. It is based on direct work with users and meeting their basic needs. Beneficiaries go through life skills learning program, participate in workshops, and are provided with psycho-social support, learning support, mediation between institutions, basic medical interventions, and socialization.
The shelter for children and young people is a safe place for children - an hour more in the shelter is an hour less on the street. The Shelter for children and young people bases its work methodology on the principles of voluntariness, participation, and designing the service so that it meets the needs and interests of the users. Most beneficiaries come from families living in conditions of absolute poverty and social exclusion. Shelter users are children and youth in these circumstances:
those scavenging dumpsters for food;
trash / recyclables collectors;
street/flea market merchants;
street-based sex workers;
from an extremely poor family.
Users are aged between 5 and 19 years.
