CEPORA - Center for positive Youth Development

Main aim of the charity

The man aim is to show these children that they are not alone, that their dreams are not impossible and we are all proud of them. As volunteers, we are also playing games with them, going to cinema, drawing etc. Cepora organization is financed by ,,Center for protection of children and youth,, and volunteers are working at several homes besides ,,Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj’’ such as ,,Mosa Pijada’’ or ,,Drinka Pavlovic’’.

How the employee got involved and why

It seems to me that I had always interest and willingness to work with children with special needs. I had dreamed to go to University that will equipped me with right knowledge and skills for such a work. This dream did not come true, but I was blessed to join the volunteering organization CEPORA where now I can do what I really like during my free time.

What work does the employee do for charity?

As a part of a team of volunteers of CEPORA organization, I do my best to spend joyful and fun filled time with these amazing children each Sunday at 11 AM, doing various activities with them such as playing games, drawing, teaching them various things through a game, going to cinema etc. We pay special attention for kids that have some problems with physical mobility and work with them with aim to improve their abilities.

What impact would winning have on the charity?

First of all, winning would make possible better conditions in their “home” with more toys, more books, and more birthday parties, some of talented children would get opportunity to continue to develop their talents through further formal education. For those that will leave their temporary homes it is important to provide conditions for normal life and avoid that once they grow up they end up on the street.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

For me personally it will be feeling that I have succeeded in making some positive change for my little friends.
