Our help is based on the needs of each children's home and each child separately. We emphasise on the individual help. We ask the management of children's homes and the children themselves, what bothers them, what they need to help or advice with. Then we develop our activities according to that.
Every Tuesday we visit children’s home in Mladá Boleslav, every Wednesday children’s home in Nové Strašecí and every Thursday children’s home in Krnsko. We adapt our activities to the individual needs of each child. We play games with the children, help them with schoolwork and read bedtime stories for the little ones.
We build trust
When the weather is nice, we spend time with the children in their garden. We talk to the older ones and listen to each other. We build mutual trust and friendly relationships to ensure the children that they can contact Good Fairies at any time - even after leaving the children's home one day.
We Visit Four Children’s Homes Regularly
Once a week we visit the children's homes in Nové Strašecí, Mladá Boleslav, Krnsko and Dolní Počernice, where we teach children schoolwork and help them to improve their knowledge. We try to motivate them and make learning fun without forcing them. Children enjoy this time and enthusiastically inform us about their progress at school during our next visit. At that moment, we know that things are going the right way. Those moments are our goals.
We Support Their Personal Development
We tutor children individually or in pairs. Older children discuss with us not only school stuff, but also the right direction in life. We know that personal development is not only about exam results, but also about the goals we want to achieve as well as social development and understanding the world around us.
We Organise Sports, Cultural and Social Activities
Usually once a week on weekends we arrange activities for children to support their personal development and have new and enriching experiences. We go to a museum, theater or organize outside and sport activities. This is a perfect complement to our regular visits and it helps us to learn more about children outside the children's home.
We Organise Summer Camps and Weekend Stays
Once a year we organise a summer camp. We spend a week with "our" children under one roof in the middle of nature and it's an amazing experience. We build trust with each other and strong friendships. In winter, we arranged a St. Nicholas weekend for children, their educators and our volunteers. We do our best to organise an unforgettable weekend full of joy when participants get closer to each other.
We Support Foster Parents and Single-Parent Families
We use our donation also for providing financial support to foster parents and single-parent families at the beginning of the school year. It's mostly related to payments for children's clubs. We also help them to obtain food within the Nationwide Food Collection. For these families, such a help is significant. We have a great admiration for the energy, love and enthusiasm with which all foster parents fulfil their mission, and we are glad we can help them at least this way.
“Honestly, every visit comes with a rewarding experience for us as well—a child’s smile, joy, laughter and a friendly hug. Every week we spend at least three hours in each of the homes with children and build a close relationship and mutual trust with them. We are very happy about it and we also know it makes a commitment. But it is not a commitment we are afraid of because when you do things with love, worries go away.“
