UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund) funded project:

“Creating a social centre for children refugees and asylum seekers” ·



Background information:

In the year 2002 there were almost no social facilities for the numerous refugee and asylum seeker women and especially children who had

to continue their lives in a completely new and alien country. A project funded by UNICEF and implemented by NEEKA was organised to

build and set up a social centre to provide some basic services.


Creation of a Social Centre: On the territory of NEEKA's offices in Mukachevo, a new social centre was built specifically for the

most vulnerable groups such as women, children, unaccompanied minors. The social centre included classrooms, a small kitchen, a library

and a main conference, meeting room.
