Our fieldwork is all about understanding the situation in which the marginalised children are – giving them all the love and attention they need to get complete trust and let them feel safe in our care.
In field work, we give these young children (6- 15 years) all the love and attention they need to get complete trust and let them feel safe in our care so that they will be able to share with us their problems or reasons of living on the street.
Numerous talks with the children and relatives are crucial to see the true conditions of both sides and also find out about their seriousness and willingness to change their situation.
The individual situation in which child’s rights are at risk, e.g. lack of care, no access to education, determines whether we consider moving forward. Involving relatives and needing their acceptance and willingness for cooperation is the following step. After about 2 – 4 months of regular leisure time with the children, the final decision is taken and the guardians are invited. From this step on, the children start attending our internal classes and receive a comprehensive guidance to form their personality in our Centre.
Each year we usually get into closer contact with 30 to 50 children, male and female in relation to the capacity and resources available.
