The Way Home

Organization: The Way Home
Project: Medical and social aid centre for children in the Regional Dermatological and Venereal Hospital for Children
Location: Odessa, Ukraine
Target group: Street children

The project enables the Regional Dermatological and Venereal Hospital for Children in Odessa to hire psychologists, social workers and care takers. All medical and non-medical personnel undergo training in child rights and how to work with street children. The children are now being given social, psychological, educational and recreational support. Many of the admitted children now request help to attend rehabilitation programs and not return to living on the street.
