The association Children in Vienna (KIWI) operates 91 kindergartens and after-school care centers in Vienna. The KIWI facilities are innovative and creative places where children are encouraged in their individuality, personal responsibility and social skills. Since 2013, KIWI has been supporting the Guardian Angel Project kleine herzen
Under the cooperation of each KIWI site and the office shall sponsor a needy child in Russia. write the KIWI kids letters, draw and make for her godchild or transmit gifts on the occasion of holidays or birthday of the child.
The project is having a positive effect on both donor and beneficiary sides: for sponsored children from Russia or Ukraine, it means valuable assistance and support that goes far beyond financial help, especially as the sponsored children are provided with security and sentiment, not in emergency situations to be alone. In Russia, needy children with up to 150 children live under one roof. For lack of appreciation and affection, many orphans do not manage to integrate later into society.
the needy children are already experienced early in life that there are people who care about them and pay attention to them by the Guardian Angel Project.
On the other hand KIWI children learn through contact and exchange of information to another world to know and be aware of the issues of poverty and social injustice. For them it is a project that strengthens the cohesion within the group. The aim is to convey the value of giving to the KIWI children while children in Russia and Ukraine are getting real attention.
On the part of godchildren a supervisor or a supervisor accompanies the gifted child and encouraged to return the guardian angels letters and tell of his world.
In addition to the Guardian Angel Project, the following projects have been funded by Children in Vienna successfully supported:
2019 – Food camp for the children of Opochka successfully built
2018 – 70 years of children in Vienna (KIWI)
2018 - KIWI supports the education of disadvantaged children
Kleine herzen is very grateful for the great cooperation.
