Summer family camp "Butterfly Summers"
Thanks to support provided by ABLV Charitable Foundation, in the beginning of June 2016, we had a four-day summer family camp "Butterfly Summers 2016" in Skulte Manor where the children and their parents from socially vulnerable groups participated, in total 15 families from all over Latvia.
The camp program was developed to strengthen the family roots, to develop creativity of parents and their children, to improve the ability to express one's own opinion, as well as communication and collaboration skills.

 

Academy for Democracy

Palīdzēsim.lv in collaboration with the Danish Cultural Institute and Danish youth documentary theatre “C:ntact” from June 25 –30 in Skulte Manor organized a creative event "Academy for Democracy". During those six days 10 young people from Latvia and one young woman from Denmark acquired dramatic skills, the basics of public speech, choreography and vocal mastery in order to participate in a conversation festival "Lamp" on July 2 in Cēsis with the programme prepared during the academy.

SKULTE LANDLORDS 2016

The most desired summer event for many young people is Palidzesim.lv Youth Club summer camp "Skulte Landlords" that took place as usually in the cosy premises and adorable rural territory of our good friends - guest house “Skulte Manor”.

The camp programme was developed to help young people acquire during the five days as much as possible new skills and knowledge, new insight and understanding of the problems every young person faces and how to solve them using various methods. One of the main goals and tasks of the camp was to build a stable youth group that would be able and willing to participate in "Erasmus + Youth in Action" project competition, so we all together could go to a youth exchange trip to one of the partner countries.

Mission Koknese

In the beginning of July 20 sonorous voices of children and young people filled Koknese. Children and young people from socially vulnerable groups (foster families, social risk families, special boarding schools, children with hearing impairments) participated in a three-day camp in Koknese.
We stayed at the cosy holiday site Pērsejas all three days. We pitched tents, cooked meals on a bonfire (many children did it for the first time and it was a miracle for them), played various games, enjoyed fellowship, learned to be patient, to listen to the opinion of others and to support each other. To help the children get to know cultural history and nature of Latvia, we had a photo orientation "Koknese's mission". During the camp, we visited the  “Creative House”, where we learned the Latvian traditional wisdom through games and dances. This was a very interesting, useful and educational event. If you are in Koknese, make sure you go and visit this place!

 

ANNUAL CHARITY CAMPAIGN "THE SCHOOL IS CALLING 2016" ORGANIZED BY "PALĪDZĒSIM.LV" HAS STARTED

The schools soon will be calling their students for the new school year to acquire new knowledge and wisdom. However, a lot of children and youth from social risk families, large families and foster families are concerned about it - there is a need of so many things, but their resources are limited.

By donating money into the "Palīdzēsim.lv" account, you have an opportunity to provide the necessary school supplies for the students to make the beginning of the school year a joyful and expected event. Donations will be used to buy school supplies at friendly prices from our collaboration partners.


Campaign "The Week of Good Deeds 2016" from October 17-23 throughout Latvia!

For the eighth year in a row, the charity organization Palīdzēsim.lv is organizing “The Week of Good Deeds” – a week, when we are particularly active at doing goods deeds and encouraging others to do the same. “The Week of Good Deeds 2016” begins the preparations for the centenary of the state of Latvia and is organized in collaboration with  the Youth Action Committee for Latvian National Centenary and the Ministry of Education and Science.

The process of helping – it can be pleasant, exciting and so very important in difficult times. It also gives pleasure and satisfaction to the helper himself/herself. By helping others, you can find new friends, partners and ideas for further work. During the "Week of Good Deeds", increased attention is being paid to the help that can be provided without a large financial investment.
