More than 50 people took part in the donation initiative of the “Foundation for Social Change and Inclusion”. The mission was launched on the platform for volunteering and good deeds – www.TimeHeroes.org – the initiative lasted for one month and aimed at equipping the newly opened centre for social services “Social Centre Opportunity” with office supplies and products.
As a result of the initiative, FSCI managed to equip the centre with everything needed – printer, scanner, desks, several computers, monitors, keyboards, laptop, tablet, headphones, router, various stationery materials, radio, cups, towels, 200 notebooks, electric kettle and many other practical items. Most of the donors visited FSCI’s office and Social Centre personally to meet the team and find out more about the foundation’s activities and programmes that support young people leaving specialized institutions for children, deprived of parental care and people at risk of poverty.
“Social Centre Opportunity” was opened as part of FSCI’s project “Innovative approach in matching social services with social entrepreneurship – Centre Opportunity”. The project aims to support care leavers and people at risk of poverty in their transition to independent life. FSCI implements therapeutic individual and group techniques, personal development with focus on social entrepreneurship and training in social as well as other key skills, ranging from sales to business planning.
