About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

The project is aimed to the children in hospitals who spend there a lot of time. Some children can spend months in hospitals, they get bored and they need society to communicate with. Also children are vulnerable to staying in such conditions more than adults because they need to be in progress all the time.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Our project is going, first of all, to create a volunteering group which is going to visit hospitals and entertain children with some activities. Also we plan to create life-size puppet because children love big dolls.
Impact: How does it Work

Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.

The project "Children's Friends" is aimed at the children because they are preferential in need of support from the side of adults. Especially when some of them is in the hospital for a long time due to some disease. For many of them it is hard to experience the time spent in the walls of a hospital so we’ll try to do everything we can for young patients to make them feel much more better in the conditions of the hospital setting. So, first of all, the project "Children's Friends" dedicated to children from hospitals.

The Hospitals should welcome this. Since this idea is already established and is in progress, it presumes you have worked out modalities for corporation with pediatric units.

Well, to tell the truth the project is aimed not only at corporations but at ordinary volunteers too. We have some strategies but we're seeking for improvement :)
