LEAVES OF HOPE

Hosted and IT Managed by Dave Cox dave@coxyco.com


Our primary objective is to promote the social, medical and physical well being of the Children of Belarus. We seek to alleviate of the consequences of poverty, sickness and distress, by developing of programmes of education and training that promote the rights of children in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Our secondary objective is to promote an inclusive approach to supporting disaffected young people from England or Wales who are on the fringes of drugs or delinquency, by providing opportunities to undertake work in another culture with children who have more pressing material and emotional need.

Specifically we:


We are committed to respecting the values and culture of the country and people of Belarus and to remain receptive to new ideas and to respond sensitively to identified need;

We have not got all the answers and cannot meet all the need but we guarantee to keep listening, learning and growing with our Belarusian colleagues.

We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect with attention to their individual circumstances. We seek to help Belarusians help themselves in a way that suits their own cultural values and beliefs. We seek also to restore the self respect of the disaffected young people of England and Wales as they work for young children whose needs are so pressing. We wish to do this through involving ordinary people of all ages from both communities, working as volunteers wherever possible, developing cross cultural links and projects that are of mutual benefit.

We work according to the highest principles of good practice in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children with whom we are involved.
