In 2016 society “Tuvu” received Lauku atbalsta dienests (Rural Support Service) confirmation fro realization fo the project No. 16-06-AL03-A019.2203-000007 “Developing a Project for Establishing a Multi-functional Social Help Centre for Society “Tuvu””, which was submitted within the framework of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), Latvian Rural Development Plan for 2014-2020, event “Executing Activities in Accordance with Local Development Strategy Proposed by Company Society”. Currently 1 of the 3 project stages has been finished, and after opening the doors to help distribution premises to poor and disadvantaged families living in Zemgale they will have the opportunity to regularly receive clothing, shoes, food, household items and furniture. We are very glad to see that we have helped not only with short term tangible needs of food and clothing, but also in long-term when we see that changes have impacted the families in a larger scale by changing their thinking - changing from a receiver to a giver, supporting themselves and creating something by themselves. After the remaining 2 stages are finished by October 2018, several charity projects will take place in premises of Tuvu. Here it’s expected to receive cargo from supporters in Germany and Latvia, sort the items and distribute to cooperation partners and socially disadvantaged people, establish a room for creative and practical classes that will also serve as a room for seminars, trainings and events, as well as holding creative workshops and educational events for poor families, thus giving an opportunity to learn new skills, develop working skills and in improve family’s situation in long-term. Also the Teenager workshop will again be in operation in the premises, where teens can gather with their dads and learn good life lessons. In future it is planned to crate a green zone in the belonging territory for summer events held by “Tuvu”.
Thank you for the support of Rural Support Service (RSS) and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)!
Thank you also to municipality of Ozolnieki region for the co-financing!
