Project Description

The Day Care Center “Jelgava” (short JBSAC) is a social service institution founded in 1994, which takes care of orphans and foster children between the ages of 2 and 18. The main task of the institution is to provide the children and adolescents with an environment where they can develop and evolve and to ensure their access to education and social and medical care.

The institution, which was founded by the municipality, is making an incredibly important contribution to the region and is currently supporting 67 children and adolescents.
However, only the most urgent services for the children are covered by their budget, which means that trips for the whole group are difficult to realize and usually unaffordable. The idea to give this particular group of children and adolescents a day away from their daily routine was obvious and everything was set in motion to organize an eventful "Angel for a Day" activity.

The days program, which was planned together by the Lyoness Community Latvia and the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Association, was impressive and made the children and adolescents very happy.
The day started at the day care centre. After a brief time of getting to know each other the journey was leading the group to the Riga International Airport, where the children got to go on a special guided tour. This was a great experience for the children, most of which had never seen an airplane in real life before.

After lunch, which was provided by the Lyoness loyalty partner "Pizza Bar", the group was heading to the Riga Zoo. The joy of the children and adolescents was huge and the entire afternoon was considered a wonderful time for everyone. To conclude this wonderful day Lyoness School Starter Kits were distributed to the children and the surprise was perfect.

Finally the children and adolescence were invited to a delicious dinner provided by the Lyoness loyalty partner "SemaraH Hotel Metropole" and everyone had time to look back on an amazing day and experience for everyone.

We would like to thank all members, employees and loyalty partners of the Lyoness Community in Latvia that helped us make this day possible:
