A research carried in 2011/2012 through young people of Serbia by International Organisation SOS Children’s Villages and under sponsorship of European Committee has shown that young people that have been growing up within the programs of care, have lower results in sense of education level, possibilities for finding jobs and health condition. Furthermore, they are still facing with bigger social exclusions comparing to their coeval grown up within their families. Willing to contribute advancement of life quality of children and youngsters without parental care, as well as their social inclusion, in March 2018, we have stated up a project “Alternative Care and Rights of Children in Serbia”
This project will be dealing with rights of children in care centres, through development and implementation of practical and interactive trainings designed for professionals that are taking care of children within the system of social protection, foster families and other organisations which take care of children. The realisation of this project will bring further results:
Within the project, a lot of public events will be organised in order to increase target group’s conscience about importance of human rights, and especially the importance of children’s rights. Final, two-days lasting conference, will be held in Belgrade at the end of 2019. The results of the project and suggestion for sustainable training for professional dealing with children care, will be presented at the conference.
