I started to visit the family centre because I liked meeting other mothers who face the same difficulties. We were able to exchange opinions and benefit from each other’s advice. This mutual support made me feel stronger and more confident that I really want the best for my two boys, Lubosko and Matko.
I began to repeat the activities we were doing at the centre and practice as much as possible at home. In summer 2019, we had the chance to participate in a five-day summer camp in Klačno. I still remember the great adventures together with my children - I could not have afforded alone. As a result, my younger boy Matko has become a courageous boy with smiling eyes and improved his communication. He made progress in grasping objects with his hands and liked playing with numbers, plants, and maps.
Today, after moving away from Žilina, I continue to be in contact with our educator Katka. I look forward to meeting her again when the situation improves: this programme has given me long-lasting relationships even above and beyond the workshops in family centres.”
Dadka has been attending the Learning for Life programme at the family centre in Žilina (Slovakia), supported by NGO Partner Union of Mother Centres.
