The aim of this project is to promote an involvement of children and youth living in region Lielvārde in activities of informal education. Skills and abilities achieved would stimulate their social adaption and individual responsibility for an improvement of their life quality. As target groups for this project association "L.A.I." has selected children and young people from lowincome and underprivileged families where often they are faced to violence, addictions and have communicative problems.
Association „L.A.I." in cooperation with Social service "Social Day Care Centre"(SDCC) of municipality Lielvārde, elaborated a project "Be Healthy and Active".
Most part of activities and services offered by the municipality Lielvārde, including the Rural territories of Jumprava and Lēdmane, are not available for this target group due to the families’ poor financial and socially underprivileged situation. This is the reason why the equal availability to informal education for children facing the risks of poverty and social rejection are not secured. Therefore the Association "L.A.I." offers activities for free like: creative workshops, table games and competitions, support groups and seminars about addictions and violence free life.
By realisation of this Project in the rooms of the "SDCC" will be a separate room for activities and rest created. Regular planned activities and professional approach will create a support system for the children and youth faced to the risks of social rejection in the region Lielvārde.
The project will be carried out in the Year 2011. Total costs estimated LVL 11555.
