|Charities - Girls Home
The Girls Home supports the education and provides medical and psychological assistance to abandoned girls between the ages of seven and eighteen.
The girls are encouraged to maintain an independent life by actively participating in their community. The staff of the Girls Home help them with love, tenderness and discipline, to define their personalities.
The Girls Home is looking for the productive integration of the children into their communities. For the last 15 years the project has cared for more than 500 girls, who have been able to re-enter society or return to their own families.
The girls are accepted as they are; getting help they slowly regain their emotional stability and start a socialization process which leads them to greater independence.
