Kocka - ENG

Children and youth association Kocka is a non-profit, non-governmental and volunteers' association which has been registered on April 4th, 2008. It has been founded with the goal of helping children and youth in creating the conditions for a purposeful, wholesome and independent life in the society. On July 30th, 2008 we began with the free workshops of a various kind.

By participating in separate programs the users have the ability to get to know themselves, their own wishes and needs, to develop their self-esteem and a positive picture about themselves. That way they can develop the conciousness about the possibility of choosing long term quality choices for their lives and are prevented from choosing risky and unacceptable behaviour.

According to the children's needs and interests we organize various types of workshops, lectures, educational programmes, round tables and similar activities coordinated by the competent people and the youth. Through its work Kocka tends to appreciate the individual characteristics of every single person, induces tolerance and tries to enable the children and youth to co-create activities according to their interests.
