Projects of NGO neemiya Ukraine
Every year, over 1,400 children take part in the multi-day Explorer Camps in summer, where children and young people are supported in their personal development and encouraged in a playful way.
The first Montessori kindergarten in the region not only promotes the spiritual and social development of the individual children, but also focuses on early character training and the individual support of individual interests and talents.
Many war refugees from the east of the country come to the region around Uzhgorod. Their accompaniment, support and integration have become increasingly important in recent years.
In Ukraine, children with an increased need for support receive only limited state support. The team in Uzhgorod helps affected families through support and training and promotes the inclusion of children in everyday social life.
The nehemia center is used all year round for training courses and seminars. We focus on offers for parents of children with an increased need for support, training for foster families and people who work or live with orphans. There are also pedagogical training courses and advanced training courses for employees and leaders of church congregations.
With the support of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the first inclusive primary school in the region is being built, based on Montessori pedagogy methods.
Aid for Orphans
“Transcarpathia without orphans” is the name of the project that is working to make orphanages superfluous in the region. Instead, orphans are integrated into foster families, which are accompanied, trained and supported over the years.
