Teaching facilities are improved at the Tartu Children’s Centre in Estonia

The Child & Family Foundation supports another institute, which is managed with lots of love and dedication. The "Tartu Laste Turvakodu" (Tartu Children’s Centre) in Estonia is an institute, which offers protection, education and support for children who are confronted with various difficulties at home.

Support is not only there for the children, but also for their mothers, who are able to live in the centre with their children. In addition, the institute has a team of qualified social pedagogues, who take care of the socially deprived children in the afternoons. The team not only helps the children with their homework, but they also help them with family problems. Furthermore, the centre is a place where the children can feel at ease, learn together and have fun in their spare time.
The Lyoness Child & Family Foundation supported the project by renovating the computer and recreation room (floors, walls and ceilings), acquiring new equipment for the kitchen, as well as buying new furniture and windows.

There was an opening ceremony on the 11th April 2014. The people who attended the opening ceremony were Nina Passegger (Director CFF), Ott Neeme (CEO Lyoness Estonia), Piret Värno (Director Tartu Children’s Centre), Urmas Klaas (Mayor of Tartu), the employees at the centre, several volunteers and of course, the children and their families. The children sang songs and demonstrated their judo skills. Then, they were all shown through the freshly renovated rooms. To finish off, the employees and the Lyoness Members of Estonia helped to hand out the School Starter Kits and presents to the children at the centre.
