In Croatia, The Human Safety Net cooperate with the “Growing Up Together” Centre for Parenting Support to support parents and children exposed to more demanding life circumstances, that hinder their children's development, including more than 14,000 parents and children, with further implementation of new support programs.
The cooperation between The Human Safety Net Croatia and the “Growing Up Together” Centre for Parenting Support started in 2019. The volunteers of The Human Safety Net Croatia have been involved in projects since the cooperation started. They are engaging on implementation of the “Growing Up Together” Centre workshops, the repairment of kindergartens, as well raising donations as part of The Human Safety Net Global Challenge and supporting the holding of the Festival of Play organized by the “Growing Up Together” Centre, all over Croatia. All volunteers are doing this because they want to, but even more – because they think it's right. The goal of the The Human Safety Net Croatia initiative is to actively contribute to the improvement of the communities in which it is present throughout the country.
By doing so, The Human Safety Net Croatia expands the availability of parenting support educational programs for parents of the youngest and preschool children, which are carried out in more than 30 cities across Croatia. We help parents in unfavorable circumstances realize their children's developmental potential through workshops with parents and children, educational trips, and other events in the community. Our volunteers convey the human message of our initiative and contribute to its further successful growth. We are happy that volunteers’ every day job and their volunteer work complement each other harmoniously.
