Volunteer Projects in Croatia
Here are the projects avalable in Coratia. You can build your own program on the application form where you can choose which project you want to join and you can also combine different projects and create your own volunteer program!
Special Education Project
Join with us to support the skill development of Autistic children who will be very happy to spend time with you. You will be working at a non-profit organization which was established by some parents of Autistic children. Your main task would be work hand in hand with the parents and the staff of the organization in uplifting the quality of life of children.
Autistic children’s centre was established in late 2014 due to an initiative made by parents with autistic children. At the moment, there are around 60 to 80 children attending this centre to obtain life skills and get trained to lead a normal life style. Thus, starting from the Founders of the organization, everyone involved in this initiative share the same vision of providing a quality life for these children. Particularly, by teaching, providing therapy and making the children in various other activities, they attempt to train these children to live a normal life as much as possible.
Even though this organization requires the support of trained persons, only the parents of these children have supported the organization voluntarily. Therefore, getting an additional support is much required for the smooth functioning of the organization. Particularly if you have any qualifications on special education and therapy, it would be an added advantage to take part in this project.
Construction and Renovation
Enhance the quality of education provided for autistic children through construction and renovation efforts. The aim of this project is to renovate an old castle named ‘the city of angels’ which would be utilized once renovated to house autistic children attending the autistic children’s centre in Senzori. So your renovation efforts will make a big impact over the lives of some deserving group of children.
The autistic children’s center in Split is in a real need of operating on a larger scale to accommodate more children who expect to join them. Thus, the founders of the Center have decided to renovate an old castle named “The City of Angels” in order to house these children who would be largely benefited through this initiative. This is in fact a long term project to house Autistic Children as they get older and provide further education to help them through their adult life.
Once renovated, it will not only house children with autism, but it will also serve as an accommodation for their parents who live far away. The Castle is on a large property of approx. 7,000 square metres with a surrounding forest and in the long run, the available space will be creatively used to build bike trails and other outdoor areas which will be open for autistic kids for cycling, to explore nature and to engage in many activities which would foster their growth.
Therefore, by joining this project, you can make a real contribution to enhance the facilities required for the development of children with autism.
