PROJECT PROGRESS REPORT  FOR „WE EMPOWER CROATIAN CHILDREN TO OVERCOME FEARS“

 

During this Covid 19 period we intensify work with children in the Jarun Equestrian Club, Zagreb because they need fresh air and activities outside the classrooms to prevent the escalation of behavioral disorders caused by various fears (one of the causes is the earthquake in Zagreb and corona).

This will help prevent later severe forms of anxiety in primary school children, and at the same time contribute to solving related specific social problems and proactively influence the development of the community as a whole.

 

The general goal of this new phase of the project is:

 

  • strengthen professional and analytical capacities for the purpose of continuity of activities by increasing the number of specialized workshops and increasing the number of children involved in the program

 

 

The specific objectives of this new phase of the project are:

 

  • preparation of an expert study for the purpose of maintaining specific activities in primary schools during a class community hour,

 

  • in order to apply new ways of education, expert study has to be implemented for the purpose of detection deviations in the behavior of children covered by the program and

 

 

  • for the implementation of the program in at least three primary schools in Zagreb.

 

 

The realization of project activities in the previous period is in accordance with the set goals of the project, related to the following:

  • workshop  at  the Equestrian Club,  Jarunwhich  were held for small groups of children and parents,

 

  • lectures were given by psychologist Ana Šeremet, in order to minimize the experience of fear in both children and parents  and

 

  • thanks to the project, six children aged 8-12 attended an introductory riding course at the Equestrian club, Jarun.

 

 

We are paying special attention to the fact that children are traumatized by daily announcements about the number of infected and the number of deaths in Zagreb and beyond Croatia and that they are extremely sensitive to the fact that during this corona crisis, one of their dearest family members can become infected.

In this new phase, in accordance with the current rules of action related to the corona virus, we will improve the interaction between children and animals  because animal-assisted therapy has a number of mental health benefits such as:

 

  • Increases self-esteem, and ability to take care of one’s self,
  • Strengthens communication between children and parents,
  • Lessens feelings of anxiety, isolation, and grief,
  • Reduces feelings of loneliness and
  • Increases socialization and sense of community.

 

 

As we told on our website.

Every fear is easy to overcome with a good friend

PROJECT PROGRESS REPORT  FOR „WE EMPOWER CROATIAN CHILDREN TO OVERCOME FEARS“

 

In this second phase of the project, we intensify work with children at the veterinary clinic “ Fabela” and in the Jarun Equestrian Club  with the help of experts, psychologists  to prevent the escalation of behavioral disorders caused by various fears (one of the causes is the recent earthquake in Zagreb and coronavirus ).

This will help prevent later severe forms of anxiety in primary school children, and at the same time contribute to solving related specific social problems and proactively influence the development of the community as a whole.

 

The general goal of this phase of the project is:

 

  • strengthen professional and analytical capacities for the purpose of continuity of activities by increasing the number of specialized workshops and increasing the number of children involved in the program

 

 

The specific objectives of  this phase of the project are:

 

  • establishment of sustainable programs for the prevention of behavioral disorders in children aged 10 g - 14 g,
  • holding group consultations with interested parents in order to improve their educational methods on one hand and to develop their knowledge and competencies in recognizing fears on the other hand.

 

 

 ,

The Libera Association has launched the second phase of the project, and we must primarily keep in mind the following steps:

 

  • organizing  a  workshops  at the veterinary clinic “ Fabela” for small groups of children,

 

  • making a questionnaires for the purpose of primary therapeutic assessments for 10 children and identification of the main sources of fear in each child individually,

 

  • making drawings about fears  with 10 children during workshops and also

 

  • we cheered them on  with  T-shirts, school supplies and with pet food

 

 

We are paying special attention to the fact that children are traumatized by daily announcements about the number of infected and the number of deaths in Zagreb and beyond in Croatia  and  that they are extremely sensitive to the fact that during this corona crisis, one of their dearest family members can become infected.

 

In this second phase, in accordance with the current rules of action related to the corona virus, we will improve the interaction between children and animals because animal-assisted therapy has a number of mental health benefits such as:

 

  • Increases self-esteem, and ability to take care of one’s self
  • Encourages communication
  • Lessens feelings of anxiety, isolation, and grief
  • Reduces feelings of loneliness
  • Increases socialization and sense of community

PROJECT PROGRESS REPORT  FOR „WE EMPOWER CROATIAN CHILDREN TO OVERCOME FEARS“

 

With this project, we will intensify work with children with the help of experts, psychologists, pedagogues and doctors in order to prevent the escalation of behavioral disorders caused by various fears (one of the causes is the recent earthquake in Zagreb).

This will help prevent later severe forms of anxiety in primary school children, and at the same time contribute to solving related specific social problems and proactively influence the development of the community as a whole.

 

The general goal of the project is:

 

  • strengthen professional and analytical capacities for the purpose of continuity of activities, civil society organizations LIBERA through cooperation with the GlobalGiving Foundation.

 

The specific objectives of the project are:

 

  • establish sustainable programs for the prevention of behavioral disorders in children aged 7g - 10,
  • to form a systematic approach to children with the problem of excessive experience of fear at the age of 10-14,
  • hold group consultations with interested parents in order to improve educational methods in the detected target group,
  • develop the competencies of all stakeholders in the educational process in this area.

 

  ,

The Libera Association has launched the first phase of the project, and we must primarily keep in mind the following steps:

 

  • organizing a working group that will be involved in all phases of the project,

 

  • hiring one employee,

 

  • making a Safegard policy,

 

 

Given the fact of Covid 19 and the increase in the number of infected in Zagreb, all protective measures given the situation have slowed down the implementation of activities. Also, schools in Croatia started working on September 7, so we coordinated all activities with the stated deadline.

 

  • We are happy that our team has such creative and educated people such as Sandra, Ilija and Melita. We believe that with their help we will realize all the given project guidelines.

 

  • We hired Ilija to coordinate work with children. In this way, our team received a new impetus because we will have a person who will monitor our tasks on a daily basis and solve them promptly.

 

  • We have developed the SafeGuard Policy paper of the association necessary for working with children.

 

 

All the documentation and euquipement  are  now ready, so we are unusually happy that in this challenging situation that befell us in Zagreb, and we mean the earthquake, we will bring a ray of joy to the classrooms.
