On November 16, the Day of Social Entrepreneurship, the Association of Social Entrepreneurship presented their newest project - issue called “Social Entrepreneurship in Latvia: 19 Stories of Success”.
This issue is in three languages and includes success stories of Latvian social entrepreneurship - the big ones and also the newer fighters that have made their first steps as social entrepreneurs. We are happy that Tuvu is also included in this issue and evaluated as a story of success. Thank you to socialauznemejdarbiba.lv that this movement in Latvia has settled its roots and is growing into a great tree!
We are very, very glad, because our project “Establishing a Multifunctional Social Help Centre for Society “Tuvu”” has been confirmed! It means that the most difficult part of the project is still ahead of us, but the result will be wonderful, so we are very excited to start implementing the changes! Thank you to Country partnership “Lielupe” and Country support service for the opportunity!
As one of society’s “Tuvu” services to socially disadvantaged person groups is providing humane help with the means of shoes, clothing, food, furniture, household items etc. For 7 years these services were provided in the property premises of company UPPE. These rooms didn’t have utilities, no access to people with special needs, and with the growing demand they have become too small for fulfilling the mentioned purpose. Also, the premises are necessary for the company itself. UPPE gives our society the option to use 3 large warehouses, but they are in a very bad technical condition. The current premises will be renovated into a multifunctional social help centre, where w will receive cargoes form Germany, the goods will be sorted and distributed to socially disadvantaged person groups in Latvia. Children will have the opportunity to play in children’s corner, we will also host different events organized by society “Tuvu” to target groups. The necessary equipment and furniture for the Centre will be received from Germany partners in the way of donation. About the project
