About

Earlier in 2017 UK registered charity “Giving for Latvia” (reg. charity no. 1161932) organized a grant competition for crisis centres and children's charities based in Latvia, to support social projects for children and families, in particular from marginalized and vulnerable backgrounds. Almost 30 applications were received, around half of which we would very much like to support. 
 
The generous donations that have come in to Giving for Latvia over the past two years allows us to cover 12 of these grant applications (€1,500-500 each), buying educational and special needs equipment, paying for day trips for underpriviledged children, etc.
 
We have selected a further handful of strong applications developed by children's charities in Latvia. We would be very keen to bring these projects to life already this Christmas and to achieve this we have organised a Special Christmas Appeal to you, our kind donors. Please support vulnerable children in Latvia, by donating towards projects aimed at their development and wellbeing.  
 

Event details

5 children's projects your donation will go to

Below is the list of the projects covered by this appeal. Please feel free to note in the comment section if you would wish your donation to go towards any particular one. We will be guided by your wishes:
- €500 - Valka families support charity. Montessori materials for children from risk families.
- €500 - Riga. Samaritans Crisis Centre "Māras Centrs". IQ tests and games.
- £300 - Dobele Crisis Centre. Computer for children to continue studies via e-klase, while they are in the crisis centre.
- €500 - Ventspils. Special Needs Centre "Cimdiņš". Looms ("stelles") or a sowing machine.
- €200 - Riga. Latvian Foster Family Association. Board games and "novus" table.

 
Or if you happen to have a spare computer, that could be used by the Dobele Crisis Centre, such gift would be very welcome instead of the monetary donation.
Let us know if you would like to read the specific grant applications in detail: info@givingforlatvia.com

Giving for Latvia volunteers and the beneficiaries in Latvia are sincerely grateful for all your current and future support!
