The donation from REM Ljubljana Autumn 2017 will go to the Humanitarian project Sponsorship in Slovenia (Botrstvo).

The humanitarian project Sponsorship in Slovenia started in 2010 under The Association of Friends of Youth Ljubljana Moste-Polje. It concentrates on helping children and youth from socially disadvantaged families from all over Slovenia. The goal of the project is to connect children in need and people willing to help with the intention of enabling better possibilities for healthy development and create equal opportunities for all children.

Project is directed in providing financial help to children in need for adequate nutrition, school or extracurricular activities, transport to school, medical equipment, healthy development and other expenses. With monthly support in sum of at least 30 euros by their “godfathers” and “godmothers” they are more able to integrate in life of peers and have better chances and encouragement to access their life goals.

You can find more about the project at our website You can either become a “godfather” or “godmother” yourself or donate to our fund which helps us cover the monthly help for children in case a “godfather” or “godmother” cannot help to a child anymore.

If you want to become a “godfather” or “godmother” you can contact them at, in case you want to donate to Sponsorship in Slovenia fund you can do this via Paypal or bank transaction.

Currently there are over 4450 “godfathers” and “godmothers” helping to more than 5100 children in need.
