We started our psycho-educational sessions with the first group of children!
The Chance for a balanced life for children from disadvantaged backgrounds
At the end of the year 2018 we started our first personal development courses, for children included in the psycho-educational program developed by the Association “Aici Pentru Tine”. The first group consists of 6 children, aged between 8 and 10 years and a second group, for those aged 10 to 13 years, will start soon afterwards.
Our thanks go the clinician psychologist, Zamfir Ion, who is with the children, body and soul. He helps them, each session, to develop their skills, to have a positive and open attitude towards others, to be empathetic and altruists, to adapt, to and resolve behavioral problems.
The opportunity for such therapy, for children in disadvantaged circumstances, is very rare because sessions with the psychologist are generally a privilege of the rich. That is why we have created this “Training and Life-skills” workshop to help children and adolescents from disadvantaged backgrounds. This will help them to further integrate into society and lead a balanced life, avoiding early sexual activity and unwanted pregnancy, HIV/AIDS infections or other sexually transmitted diseases, abuse and drug use.
Each module lasts 6 months (for each age group) and comprises weekly meetings, of two hours, which consist of learning activities, with alternative methods, many games and practical exercises, role-playing games, discussions on topics of general interest, presentations and motivational videos. ALL evaluations are made based on Neuropsychological tests, contained in the NEPSY Cognitive Skills Assessment Battery (3-12 years).
These children deserve the chance to evolve just like others, to solve their emotional problems. Lack of confidence, lack of affection, lack of self-esteem is bigger problems than lack of money, food or clothing. We want to help these children lead a beautiful, long-term life. We want to give them the confidence that they will manage in life, that they will be able to have normal families and will be able to help society. They will realize that are not victims, but strong people who will succeed.
Thank you very much to our sponsors: Promedivet, Conex Distribution S.A. and the Association of Social Services SCUT!
