The aim of this project is to promote an involvement of children and youth living in region Lielvārde in activities of informal education. Skills and abilities achieved would stimulate their social  adaption  and  individual  responsibility  for  an  improvement  of  their  life  quality.  As  target groups  for  this  project  association "L.A.I."  has  selected  children  and  young  people  from lowincome  and  underprivileged  families  where  often  they  are  faced  to  violence,  addictions  and have communicative problems.

Association „L.A.I." in cooperation with Social service "Social Day Care Centre"(SDCC) of municipality Lielvārde, elaborated a project "Be Healthy and Active".

Most part of activities and services offered by the municipality Lielvārde, including the Rural  territories of Jumprava and Lēdmane, are not available for this target group due to the families’ poor financial and socially underprivileged situation. This is the reason why the equal availability to informal education for children facing the risks of poverty  and social rejection are not secured. Therefore the Association "L.A.I." offers activities for free like: creative workshops, table  games  and  competitions,  support  groups  and  seminars  about  addictions  and  violence  free life.

By  realisation  of  this  Project in the rooms of the "SDCC" will be a separate room for activities  and  rest  created.  Regular  planned  activities  and  professional  approach  will  create  a support  system  for  the  children  and  youth  faced  to  the  risks  of  social  rejection  in  the  region Lielvārde.

The project will be carried out in the Year 2011. Total costs estimated LVL 11555.
