The BUBURUZA social creche, with a capacity of 12 seats, today opened its doors for young children in Glodeni. This free social service was created by CCF / HHC Moldova together with Glodeni City Hall, within a project implemented in partnership with UNICEF, the Ministry of Labor, Social Protection and Family and the Ministry of Health.
The creche is intended for children aged 4 months to 3 years who come from vulnerable families and risk being separated from their parents because of poverty or other social difficulties. This service will allow children to be in the care of educators all day long, while their parents, especially mothers or fathers alone, can engage in work.
The nursery is equipped according to the standards and operates in regular kindergarten. Children enjoy early childhood care: walking, changing diapers, feeding, sleeping, playing etc. Upon completion of the renovation, the grove was taken over by Glodeni City Hall, which will continue to finance this very important social service for vulnerable families in the city.
The Social Crisis in Glodeni is one of the results of the Young Children's Project - we understand the needs, develop services, reform the system, developed by CCF / HHC Moldova in partnership with UNICEF. The total cost of repairs and endowments is about 20 thousand euros.
In 2012, the social crèche service, developed by CCF / HHC, was awarded by the Austrian ERSTE Foundation for Social Innovation.
At the same time, this service has been included in the UNICEF Compendium for Eastern Europe and Central Asia as a successful practice in supporting early childhood.
UNICEF promotes the rights and wellbeing of every child, in everything we do. Together with our partners, we work in 190 countries and territories to translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all children, everywhere.
