Renovate for 2300 underprivileged Lithuanian kids

by Informacijos ir paramos gausiai seimai centras

We are somewhere in the middle  of our Fall Help and Fundraising campaign for  The Centre For Information and Support for Large Families.

Together with Lithuanian small businessmen and traders association Klaipeda department we had activities to collect goods for kids, who started to attend school this year.  Boxes with clothes, shoes, school backpacks were donated by small businessmen to support forty 6-7 year kids from large families.

On October 4, volunteers from our organization third time worked at street market “Mosquito family” selling personal second-hand goods and collecting money we need to run activities for kids from large families. (These Markets is a place where families can sell and buy second-hand clothes, shoes, toys and other family goods. This event invited citizens to the responsible use and fostering family values.)

We would like to thank all the citizens from local community who donated gently worn clothing during last few month. Thanks to them every last Saturday of the month we have Giveaway days. Street people, poor families and other people in need can choose and take clothing and shoes.

We continue to be connector between regional Food Bank and poor large families and organize food support once per week for 120 large families with more as 400 children.

But we really need your help to push through to our goals.

If you have supported project “Renovate for 2300 Lithuanian kids” in the past, this is your chance to let us know once again that you appreciate the unique combination of social support and non-formal education.

If you have never given a donation to the project “Renovate for 2300 Lithuanian kids”, this is your opportunity to help us do the work – to help families to cut circle of poverty, to donate future for underprivileged kids, to help us grow in our capacity to serve.   

Please take 5 minutes today to make donation to "Renovate for 2300 underprivileged Lithuanian kids" ( We need your support whether it is $25 or $50 or $200 or 500.

The last few months were very productive for the Centre for Information and Support for Large Families:


1) Together with other 20 participants from 6 different countries we had a meeting in Klaipeda where the discussion regarding the possibilities and ways to improve mutual intergenerational communication by using innovative methods of intergenerational learning took place;


2) 24 young people with limited possibilities participated in various international youth projects, where they received more knowledge and experience in cultural, ecological and community development areas and were trained to be leaders in personal and community life;


3) In partnership with other organizations, one day festivity (2014 06 21) with attractions, games and handcraft activities for poor children was organized;


4) Director of the Centre for Information and Support for Large Families Regina Sevelkaitiens became a member of Klaipeda City Municipality Council for the Family (goal of Family Council - help to implement municipal functions, creating a family-friendly environment in the Municipality and to strengthen co-operation between local authorities and agencies and non-governmental organizations working with families or their representatives).

We are very thankful to all volunteers, cooperating organizations, donors and especially to God, who blessed our events!

Our current task is to organize a summer camp for children from large families, who otherwise have no possibilities to afford any kind of holiday away from home. The summer camp is to take place in August 2014 and it is planned for 50 children to attend, therefore we kindly ask for your financial support.

50$ will ensure safe, healthy, happy one-week holiday per child.

We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone. Ronald Reagan

The Centre for Information and Support for Large Families is a non-governmental, non-profit organization with a mission of helping large families to avoid, prevent and solve different problems that can influence children socialization negatively. 

Serving underprivileged families and providing indispensable services during the period of July – September, 2013 “The Centre for Information and Support for Large Families” organized 62 different activities for 283 large families. Three humanitarian aid actions were performed for inducing community’s will and actions to share, collect and divide clothes, shoes and furniture for the less-fortunate. 7596,6 kg of food was packed into 600 packages and 1942 indigent people were supported in partnership with Food Bank. 210 families regularly (2-3 times per week) receive newsletters with interesting, useful and educational information.

Special attention was paid to children and youth. Children enjoyed summer camp and 35 young active volunteers participated at different youth trainings and international youth exchange programs (five times during July-September 2013 period). 

We invite everyone to be a part of our ultimate goals in both, organization and society — cutting down poverty circle and empowering underprivileged large families, children and youth. 

We want to say THANK YOU for every single one of the donors at GlobalGiving, whose donations still helps to renovate "Community house for Families" and carry out special services for underprivileged families, youth and children. Your open hearts and giving hands made huge positive changes in many lives.

Our young long-term volunteer Ida Sevelkaityte, who grew up in a big family, didn't forget lessons learned and experiences, abilities and capacities acquaired at The Centre For Information and Support for Large Families. For three years she is studying at Weimar Konservatorium in Germany. Together with friend from China Yichen Zhang she created song "The Wave of sharing" for the Video Contest "Youth against poverty" 2013 and donated it to our organization.

Also active mother of big family Vitalija Visinskiene attended courses for leaders of non-governmental organizations and learned how to create video films using IT technologies. You can see her first "movie", asking to help for project "Renovate for 2300 underprivileged Lithuanian kids" in Lithuanian and English..

And the team of helpers and volunteers is growing, and the team of youth actyvists and volunteers in the organization is growing too.


Let’s create together the Wave of sharing! Thank you everyone for your "helping hand" , "open heart" and financial support!
