We help people stuck in generational poverty

We work directly in the poor communities where we implement the programs: OMAMA, AMAL, FILIP and ZEBRA. You can help people in generational poverty too. Thank you 🙂

The way out of poverty

1. What is the problem?

In Slovakia, thousands of people live in generational poverty. Children are born into difficult conditions, whose starting line has been shifted since birth. Low education, high unemployment, unsuitable housing and frequent health problems form a vicious circle of problems from which it is difficult to get out without outside help.

2. How do we solve it?

In poor communities, we launched programs for the development of children from birth, youth and targeted work with their parents. Omamas and FILIPs regularly visit hundreds of families directly in communities, where family members themselves become agents of change. Youth leaders work with older children in Zebra clubs.

3. Where are we heading?

We have a vision for children and youth growing up in poverty to live in a supportive environment and get a chance to develop their potential. If they get a better education, their chances of success in life will be higher. At the same time, we want to give families the opportunity to learn more efficient management, to get and keep a job, or to improve their housing. Let slums turn into viable communities.

What has already been done

Thanks to the community of supporters, midwives are already dedicated to hundreds of children and their parents, and mentors of the FILIP program help dozens of families grow in a difficult situation.

We have a lot of trust in omama. She teaches our son Slovak, we speak Romani at home. He already knows colors and we like to borrow a book about animals.

I perceive the substantial benefit of the Omama program. The children who come to our kindergarten are more fearless and used to the fact that someone has already done something similar with them. They are better at motor skills. They definitely know the language better. They pull others. They will understand the instruction the first time. For those children who then go to kindergarten regularly and honestly, you can see their great progress.

Mr. Jozef has been working abroad for a long time and brings quite a decent income. However, the family lives in a vicious circle of debts from the past, from which they would like to break free. We have new goals. What I personally like the most is how he keeps saying that things can change if they themselves want to.

mentor in the FILIP program

I am proud of myself when others praise me. I am a completely different woman. But I am also proud of my mothers. The other day, one thanked me for everything I taught her Maťka and Ivanka. Because they are praised a lot in kindergarten. But I told my mother that it is exactly the opposite. That it is her merit. Because she was involved in the lessons and then spent time at home with her children.

It will soon be a year since Gabo has been at work. He and Ľudka started building a family house. He asked about his driver’s license and they are already planning their finances. Until recently, a young man with little self-confidence and little talkativeness, with hasty decisions, now thinks and considers. He no longer solves the “here and now”, he does not only extinguish current problems, but thinks about the future.

They said about us

On my travels, I am interested in concrete solutions that help families and children escape from poverty. While visiting Zborov, I watched with admiration the lesson of the Omama program, which supports the development and education of young Roma children from birth and is based on cooperation with mothers. … Zobraziť viac

In the world of economic policy, there are few such measures where every single euro spent not only has a high return for society, but also reduces income differences. Investments in preschool education (0 to 5 years) of children from marginalized population groups are exactly such a bright exception.
