Due to the difficult family situation of many of our children, which is characterized by poverty, frustration, violence and unfavorable diets, we started to work with a psychologist in 2013 and gradually built up the psychology department. Initially, many individuals were reluctant to volunteer for psychological counseling. In particular, through home visits and personal conversations, the ice was broken gradually.
In discussions with parents, kindergarten teachers and the municipal council it becomes clear how central the work of the psychologists is for the improvement of the family situation, and thus for the future of the children.
Today, our three psychologists care for an average of 250 children and families each month.
