Turning around the lives of the most vulnerable children is particularly demanding work.
Often very difficult to reach, these children can present significant challenges. Sometimes academic support alone is not enough. As a result, Sofronie funds projects that reinforce children’s learning in a variety of ways.
Some programmes provide emotional support or mentoring; another offers particularly broad support for struggling children by helping their parents provide a supportive family life.
Although the programmes we fund are very different in nature, they share the same general principle. All provide early intervention, which has been shown to deliver the best outcomes for the children they help. Most importantly, each programme operates a ‘child-centred’ approach, placing the needs, happiness and well-being of each child front and centre. These considerations then drive the resulting actions and it is this approach that will deliver lasting improvements to these children’s lives.
