Dobré víly dětem | Nezisková organizace

OUR MISSION

 

“With regular visits, personal, friendly and individual support, we give children from children’s homes the most valuable thing – time, attention and love. We help them prepare for school and develop in the areas they enjoy. We educate and strengthen their autonomy and self-confidence.

 

We also focus on foster and incomplete families. We firmly believe that any kind of support –  moral, financial… you can take your pick – is really helpful

 

We cannot change children´s previous experience, but we know and we want them to believe that life has also its bright side.”

 

ABOUT THE FAIRIES

Our organization The good fairies was set up in September 2015 by us – three fairies: Angelika, Michaela and Saskia.

As the name suggests, we focus predominantly on children from children’s homes, however, we also support foster families. The children mostly enjoy sports and cultural activities, they seek attention, appreciate friendly care and affection. We also provide the children with remedial classes and help them prepare for further studies. We put the main emphasis on a child´s personal growth. In June 2018, we obtained Award D for  extraordinary achievement as regards children’s homes.

 

Currently, we have three children’s homes under our wings that we pay regular visits to and organize activities of different sort – summer and winter camps, trips and educational programmes.
We visit the children´s home in Nové Strašecí every Wednesday, the children´s home Krnsko every Thursday. The children from the children´s home Mladá Boleslav join us in various weekend and cultural events or take part in the aforementioned camps.

What activities do the Fairies focus on together with the children and how does the whole process work?

 

We visit the children in Nové Strašecí and Krnsko once a week. We usually talk with the kids at the beginning of the school year – we discuss with them what is ahead of them and what they wish. We have established one rule – we never push them to study. We try to motivate them, guide them and show them that learning can be fun and happen in a natural way. This rule has proven to be a good thing – children are literally eager to learn something new. Their school results speak volumes. We thus know that we are on a good track and that is what counts.

 

The children mainly need to improve in mathematics and English. If possible, we prefer to teach them individually or in pairs. The older children come first: we speak with them about their future (not only jobwise), but we also we try to find ways how to motivate them and help them.

 

 

Apart from the extra remedial classes, we like to spend time with the kids outdoors. We play games and do other leisure pursuits which they fancy – e.g. we organized a volleyball training (particularly popular among older children) in Nové Strašecí in the spring 2018. 🙂

 

 

Although our help is purely charitable (we do not get any salary), we find this activity very rewarding – children´s smiles, joy and heart-warming hugs make up for any financial reward. Every week we spend at least three hours in all three children’s homes trying to create a closer bond with the kids. This is what our children value most. Needless to say, it is a big commitment, but when things are done with love, all apprehensions vanish. Not only the children inspire us, we get inspired by them.

 

We go to the children’s homes to fill our hearts with love and affection.

London experience and a life-changing adventure

We would like to take eleven adolescent children, i.e. keen English learners from two children’s homes, for a long weekend in London. We would love to show them the importance and usefulness of the English language in day- to -day situations. We believe that seeing this beautiful and bustling city in movies and textbooks is […]

The good fairies help me a lot with schooling; they also motivate me to get ready for my classes as much as possible. I´m well aware that I´ll be working for the rest of my life and that the selection of my future job largely depends on how much time I spend on studying now. The Fairies have helped me a lot in this respect and I am very grateful for that.


Andrea

The Fairies are just awesome! They have helped me so much to get better both at school and also with my manners. We talk a lot, they are ready to hear me out and encourage me not to give up on my dreams. Some time ago I was on cloud nine to learn that the Fairies had organized for me an appointment with a professional photographer so that I could have my own photo shoot. I would never have believed it might come true. It was amazing and I was able to take this first big step in life, again thanks to The fairies. I will never forget the time which we spent together.. 🙂 ❤️❤️❤️


Danča

The Good fairies are not only an ordinary non-profit organization. They are also my friends I can rely on come what may. They have done so much not only for me but also for other kids: I have met a lot of new lovely people thanks to the Fairies; they prepared the best birthday party I ever had in my life; last but not least, they help me with schooling. Hopefully, when I get older I might become one of their volunteers!


Jirka

The good fairies have helped me with my life as such. I got inspired a lot by their life wisdom and opinions.

At first, I just wanted to help The Fairies organize an auction, later on a running race. I was not in touch with the children at that point. Even that gave me rewarding feelings.
