“A place under the sun”
By supporting the special care village Haraka Kodu (The Home of a Magpie), you will help the community of young people with severe and deep intellectual disabilities and multiple disabilities, in the launching stage of the village. The aim of Haraka Kodu is to offer a modern and stimulating living environment based on a community model for young people with specialised needs who have completed the national curriculum for students with moderate and severe learning disabilities or physical disabilities. Taking into account the special nature of these young people, it is clear that they need assistance and guidance after graduating school, as well. They need the assistance of activity instructors, physiotherapists and activity therapists and many other specialists.
SA Junior Achievement Eesti
“Help young people to gain business experience and contribute to a better future for the economy of Estonia”
Do you know that 37% of young people want to make the world a better place via entrepreneurship? 80% of pupils say that they lack the possibility to develop their creativity and employ their entrepreneurial talents at school. These were the results of the survey on attitudes towards entrepreneurship at Estonian schools carried out by SA Junior Achievement Eesti.
The objective of SA Junior Achievement Eesti is to support the development of enterprising Estonia. We wish that all young people would acquire an enterprising attitude towards life at school, that they would learn to plan their finances and they could try being an entrepreneur risk-free. The best possibility to acquire all this knowledge and at the same time, obtain respective skills, is to participate in the “Student company” programme. By running a student company the young people get business experience – this expands their career possibilities remarkably, gives them self-confidence, and develops their creativity, as well as their teamwork and communication skills. The young people who have participated in the “Student company” programme cope better in the labour market and with everyday life. They are the engine of the progress of Estonia’s economy.

“Grief support camps for bereaved children”

By today more than 650 children have taken part in these camps and the feedback as regards the effectiveness of these camps received from the children themselves, their family members and specialists working with the children has been very positive. All children who took part in the programme of 2010–2011 said that the camps have been useful and they recommend it to other children as well.
