Dear supporters,

Thank you for being a part of the changes we are seeing in the lives of children, families and communities in which we work.

You are making such a huge difference each and every day in the lives of these children, it is so wonderful to see these kids smile, it lights up my whole day, I hope it does yours as well…!

There are many days when the work that we do can be overwhelming and full of challenges. However, there is not ever a day that I am not encouraged by seeing that the work that we do is changing and transforming lives.

During the last couple of months our focus was on providing support for the children and their families with after school educational support; providing necessary school materials for the children; advisory support for the parents; life skills workshops for the children and parents; creative workshops; drama classes; dancing classes.

During the summers we had scout volunteers from France that brought their culture close to our children and encouraged them to build their scout spirit and excitement. It has been a great time for both, the children and the volunteers as well. Our program has been also enriched with drama classes run by professional actors, volunteering at our Centre.

In August we have celebrated our 25 years anniversary! Our Educative Centre NADEZ (HOPE) 25 years has been beam of light, hope, support, direction, affirmation, strength and safety for more than 6000 vulnerable children and their families.

It is because of people like you, sharing your compassion and support in a very real way, these children are able to dire obstacles and finish school, go to high school and even university, feed their families and help their peers make better choices with their lives.

The start of the new school year in September brought a new excitement for the children. Thanks to the support of many individuals like you, we managed to provide the necessary school supplies for all the children visiting our Centre, so they could have an equal start of the school year just like their peers. More than 30 children are visiting our Centre every day and are mastering their school curriculum through creativity, mentored by our educators and volunteers.

Our program with the parents is something that we also pay special attention to. Interactive workshops in mix groups of students-parents were organized during the last couple of months on the topics of: “Responsible parenting”,”Gender equality”, “Cyber bulling” ,” Punishing and rewarding as measures in raising children”. Also an individual advisory support for the parents is being provided on daily basis at our Centre.

We are very excited to share with you that our project is participating in GlobalGiving’s Giving Tuesday Campaign. The campaign will last 24 hours, from 00:00:00 EST to 23:59:59 EST on November 29, 2022. GlobalGiving is offering a $1,200,000 Incentive Fund that will be distributed to participants proportionally based on final fundraising totals. Please help us win the Incentive Funds by donating to our project. Mark your calendar for November 29 to #MoveaMillion on #GivingTuesday!

Our program is facing serious challenges in providing financial support for the next period and joint action is needed more than ever for continuous educational support for these vulnerable children. Please share this project with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

Once again thank you for partnering with us! Thank you for caring and believing in these children! Thank you for all of your support and encouragement!

On behalf of our team, and the children and their families, please know that you are sincerely and deeply appreciated.

Dear Friends,

We deeply appreciate your support for the vulnerable children attending our Educative Centre in North Macedonia.

Thanks to our donors and supporters we were able to continue the school children program in the last quarter, providing additional after school support, nutrition snacks for the children during their stay in our Centre and advisory support for the parents, with 40 children attending our Centre every day.

Providing the necessary school supplies for them, so they could have an equal star of the school year with their classmates is our priority in the next quarter.

Unfortunately, due to lack of funding for the program we haven’t reached our aim yet to provide support for our preschool program as well, so it is put on hold, but we are hopping on your support so that these vulnerable children could have an opportunity to start with the early childhood development program, which is of great importance for their successful involvement in school later.  

Please share this project with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

We are deeply grateful for your support,

CSI NADEZ team

Dear supporters,

Thanks to your donations on GlobalGiving, we were able to continue with our educative program and to provide additional after school support, nutrition snacks for the children during their stay in our Centre and advisory support for the parents.

The children are attending our Educative Centre every day, divided in smaller groups. Our educators are using individual approach and the model of learning through play while working with the children. The main activities are focused on learning the Macedonia language, homework completion, reading support and Math help.

We're grateful to have all of you donors as part of the education journey of these children.

These families cannot thank you enough for your continued support, and the difference your donations are making to their children’s lives.

Your support through the past few months has helped us continue to support total of 30 vulnerable children at our Centre. Unfortunately, due to lack of funding for this program we haven’t reached our aim yet to provide support for 60 vulnerable children at our Centre, but we are continuing with our efforts to make this a reality in the coming months.

Without your generous contributions many of the activities listed above would not have been possible. Thus, CSI NADEZ’s team and the children want to conclude this report by conveying our heartfelt gratitude. 

Please share this project with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project.

We are deeply grateful for your support,

CSI NADEZ team

Dear supporters,

Thank you for helping to pave the way to a brighter and better future through education for the vulnerable children from Shuto Orizari.

It’s been a wild year, but if we have learned anything it’s that even if can’t connect in person, together we can still have a huge impact.

You are truly making a difference for these children with your generous support.

From September we have welcomed our new group of 5 year old preschoolers, who were so exited having the chance to meet their new friends, learn and play. Despite all the challenges we face every day, having in consideration that these children had no chance to attend any early child development program before, they are successfully going through the adaptation period and start to learn the Macedonian language. We enjoy every day following their progress.

With the beginning of the new school year, with your support we were able to provide the necessary backpacks with school supplies for the new elementary school students attending our Centre,they are getting additional after –school support at our Centre and also enjoing  nutrition snack and learning healthy habbits on a daily basis.

During the last months the parents have been receiving advisory support at our Centre, especially on the topic of mental health and wellbeing of the children and families during the ongoing pandemic.

We love when our “HOPE” family grows! The new 10 children, who had opportunity to join the Centre thanks to your support during the last months, as well as their families, brought so much joy and smiles. That is our greatest motivation to keep up with our work and reach our goal of providing support for total of 60 new children this year. But we cannot do this without your support.

We are very excited to share with you that our project is participating in GlobalGiving’s Giving Tuesday Campaign. The campaign will last 24 hours, from 00:00:00 EST to 23:59:59 EST on November 30, 2021.Please help us win the Incentive Funds by donating to our project.

Dear supporters,

As COVID-19 continues to impact some of the most vulnerable communities in our country, “Give education to 60 vulnerable Roma children” is making great strides towards ensuring students have access to education and chance for better future.

Thanks to donations on GlobalGiving in the previous quarter, we were able to expend the number of vulnerable children participating in our program for preschool and school education, for 9 new children. Donations help us to provide additional after school support, nutrition snacks for the children during their stay in our Centre and advisory support for the parents.

Bringing the joy of learning to our students is a result of donors like you who are providing financial support that helps us offer these learning activities.

Despite the challenging times and limited learning conditions for vulnerable children in our community during the pandemic, like distance learning, having no internet access, inadequate facilities; all the children visiting our Centre during this last year managed to progress to the next level, thanks to their participation in the ongoing activities at our Centre.

Our youngest (5-6 years old) participants have managed to meet the standard for school enrolment, during the examination procedures in May, and are starting elementary school from September. We are so proud of them!

These students are achieving because of donors and supporters like you who make our work possible.

 

What is next…

Children are preparing for the start of the next school year from September and hoping that they can return to their classrooms with physical presence. Providing the necessary school supplies for them, so they could have an equal star of the school year with their classmates is our priority in the next quarter.

We recognize that, particularly this year there is enormous need around the globe and that many of our supporters are experiencing their own hardships. For that reason, we are especially grateful to each of you for your generosity and support!

Stay safe and healthy!
