About Us

The “Star” Center for social integration of children and youth is an association of citizens whose goal is to promote fostering, help   to adult children without parental care in orphanages as well as those who are getting ready for an independent life after leaving the social care system. 

Our Plans

The plans of our Center are directed towards further integration of the young people we have already been helping. Our goals are modest, real and concrete. We implement all our activities “step by step”, carefully but courageously, by trying to provide our “Little Stars” with what they need now.

Our Goals

  • promoting foster care, 
  • promoting care of orphans who are preparing for independent living after leaving the social system, 
  • as well as promoting care for older children who have grown up in the orphanage and have aged out.
