Project Description

The No. 10 City Kindergarten in Zyrardow is a social institute for children from poor families, as well as for children with special needs. The challenge was to provide support and aid integration for almost 60 children, 20 of whom are severely disabled. The remaining children come from families with financial difficulties. The "Träume unserer Kinder" (Our Children's Dreams) Organisation has been supporting the Kindergarten for some time in order to achieve the Kindergarten's high targets. However, despite the extensive commitment of the participants and the carers, the Organisation often still reaches its limits.

As a group of Lyconet Marketers from Zyrardow explained the urgent need for special therapeutic educational toys to the Lyoness Child & Family Foundation Organisation, of course the Organisation wanted to provide these children, who have not always had it easy, with a little help. The provision of urgently required therapeutic educational toys, which could otherwise not be obtained due to financial difficulties, will make it easier to care for the children and improve the success of the therapy.

The educational toys were handed over to the children by Lyconet Marketers, Lyoness Loyalty Merchants and employees. It was a fantastic experience and the children's happiness and the relief of the carers was palpable. The children showed their appreciation by performing a dance and reciting poems, which they had prepared together.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the group of Marketers from Zyrardow and the dedicated employees from the Lyoness Poland office, who initiated and supported this event.

Project Goals

The aim of this event was to improve the therapy possibilities for the children at the No. 10 Integration Kindergarten in Zyrardow. As these 59 children are made up of children from social and financially disadvantaged families as well as severely disabled children, the work in this Organisation is particularly challenging. The provision of therapeutic educational toys and teaching tools will make it easier to care for the children, and improve the success of the therapy.
