About the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too:
In December 2016, upon publication of the book titled YOU ARE AN ANGEL TOO, the Kranj Rotary Club, in cooperation with its member and the writer of the said book Janez Štros, started a very special project – Giving a helping hand to children with special needs.
The purpose of the project is to help the institutions in which these children are accepted in all their uniqueness, both here in Slovenia, and also elsewhere throughout the world. These children, who have been branded as “children with special needs” by the society, are “our” children, who deserve to be given greater consideration, as they have been pushed to the edge of the society and left to be forgotten far too often.
This is why we have made a decision to expand and plan our project in the long-term. We are only too well aware that these children are, and will be, part of our society, part of our lives.
In the past two years, we have made the first steps, the steps of help towards changes. The first to feel the changes were the children from the Helena Puhar Primary School in Kranj. We have, namely, equipped a multi-sensory room for them, and built a sensory path. Moreover, we have helped furnish two rooms with movement-sensory equipment in the Janez Levec Primary School in Ljubljana, and participated in the purchase of aids for the multi-sensory room in Jel Janežič Primary School in Škofja Loka. In addition to that, we have helped the SONČEK Society by giving them a donation, and we have also donated some funds for the provision of nurophysiotheraphy.
Every donated sum has helped to improve, enrich, and change the lives of these children at least somewhat. The realisation that only perseverance, hard work, and the awareness that someone needs YOUR help has been the guiding principle of each and every individual involved in the project.
The vision and the ultimate goal of the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too is to enable jointly and, thus, ensure a brighter future of “our” children.
“Our” children are the children of “our” world, therefore, one of our goals is to take the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too to the wider world.
We are proud, and, above all, pleased that it was precisely the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too that has been chosen to be presented at the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, taking place from 1 to 5 June, 2019.
We believe that this is the moment that will contribute to our achieving the goal pursued by the project.
We are also certain that this is the moment when we will be able to touch the hearts of people and, thus, give wings to the project to be taken into the wider world.
The goals of the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too:
Our primary goal is to dedicate the resources raised to the institutions taking care of the children with special needs, and, thus, help them in the purchase of technical aids, equipment for the multi-sensory room, the movement-sensory room, the music room, and much more, all with the purpose of enabling these children a more quality use of time, and development of senses and personality. In short, we want to give them a better today for a brighter tomorrow.
“Many hands make light work” is a saying that still holds true. In Kranj Rotary Club we are aware of its meaning, and, in particular, the results that can be achieved if we all step together.
We would like to invite companies and individuals to the project and ask them to make donations in the sum of at least 20.00 EUR. As a way of thank you, all the donators will receive the book YOU ARE AN ANGEL TOO by Janez Štros.
Therefore, dear friends and donators
the project YOU Are an ANGEL Too is a well-conceived project, part of which YOU can also become.
Our great wishes and goals however, can only be achieved in the largest possible manner, with YOUR help, YOUR willpower, courage, and desire to help “our” children.
