In January 2013, we launched a pilot project aimed to improve the language and communication skills of children and young people living in Harmónia (Harmony) foster home, and to promote the special pedagogic and psychological knowledge and skills of the professional and auxiliary staff.
Since June 2012 VČELÍ DOM has been supporting a project Trampoline 2012 – a series of educational activities for non-profit organizations, which was initiated by non-profit organization Voices. A Trampoline is gymnastic equipment used for jump training and demonstration. Voices in partnership with VČELÍ DOM provide interested participants with workshops aimed to improve their operational efficiency at work, to “take off and jump on forward”.
As a contribution to the year 2012, which has been designated by the European Commission as European Year for Active Ageing and Intergenerational Solidarity, we support the project „Literary competition – Children and their grandparents write a book“, which was initiated by Socia Foundation in partnership with civic association VČELÍ DOM. Last year Socia initiated the introduction of Grandparents’ day (second Sunday in October, this year the 14th of October).
