Informacja o organizacji
The Foundation was founded as a non-partisan, non-governmental and non-profit organization with the aim of contributing to the general development of the community.
The task and goals of the Foundation were developed through experience during the last ten years of activities within the project Intergenerational Volunteer Center. The Foundation was a logical consequence of program improvement, analysis of functional requirements and spatial conditions at a particular location.
The Foundation provides transparency and communication with the environment.
Particular emphasis is placed on social programs, through culture, education and recreation, with the intention to launch topics such as the collective housing of older people, daily stays in local communities and business incubators with social entrepreneurship. To empower citizens to influence the local government, to organize in a public space a free scene that can be used without restriction by citizens in accordance with the national sustainable development strategy. Then, it affects the citizens to self-organize or build a net with other organizations, faculties, schools, embassies and other organizations in the country and abroad, and in accordance with the general objectives of the Foundation.
The Foundation aims to establish spatial conditions for the integration of social, educational, cultural, service and other programs with a modern model with intergenerational approach.
The analysis of the demographic situation in Serbia shows that there is a great need for opening clubs / daily stays for the elderly in Belgrade. It is conceived as a place for a widespread network of social protection programs outside the institution, and intergenerational cooperation. It integrates in the local community the modern concept of self-organized living / club for the elderly, that is, care for children, people with disabilities, special needs and the elderly, a center for culture, education and recreation, multipurpose auditorium for other programs and services.
Help and Public Aid in Europe
The aging of the population is already one of the most prominent challenges for European societies today, and this will affect all countries in the future. As a balance between the elderly and the young changes rapidly in all societies, less and less young people will be able to take care of a large number of the elderly. The economic crisis and the decline in social benefits have led to a fall in public finances and practical support. Accordingly, the family is becoming an increasingly important 'safety net'. In the light of the great concern about the future of intergenerational solidarity in Western societies, it is vital that private and public support interact in order to maintain and mobilize local resources.
