Aid project Austria
In Neunkirchen, Austria, the LR Global Kids Fund supports the social-pedagogical institution "SoWo". It offers girls and boys aged 14 and older a place to live if their familial situation makes it impossible for them to stay at home. A professional team looks after the teenagers 24/7 and offers them support in all important aspects of life.
The LR Global Kids Fund financially supports the institution to enable individual and group coaching. In this context, the children are taught social skills and manners. Additionally, they learn how to take on responsibility for themselves and create a positive self-image. In 2015, the LRGKF will also finance a design project for the teenagers.
The objective of the shelter is to prepare the teenagers for an autonomous life and enhance their chances for the future.
