The project started on the 1st of December, 2015 in Vámosszabadi reception centre.

The project aims to reduce the risk of hospitalization of women and children in the reception centre and to provide them an opportunity to spend their time at the camp in a productive and structured way. We organize programs for the children (arts and crafts, sports and different sorts of games) supplementing classroom lessons provided by the educational system. We also organize informative educational programs for the mothers who can respond to the difficulties and problems considering their health or other topics of interest. The project provides baby care, vitamins, hygienic and childcare equipments for the families in need.

Within the project framework we also organize trainings for professionals focusing on intercultural competence development, communication and conflict resolution skills development.
