Organization: The Way Home
Project: Centre for Early Development
Location: Odessa, Ukraine
Target group: Families at risk
The project focuses on early childhood development combined with the underlying social circumstances for why Odessa has so many street children. The Centre of Early Development provides children from at-risk families with free educational and recreational activities. At the same time both children and parents receive support from both The Way Home and Odessa Social Services in order to overcome various obstacles and risks they face. The project enables The Way Home to expand its efforts to prevent children from facing abuse and neglect and running away from home, ending up on the streets.
