TACC Overseas Donation - Slovakia October 10th 2016


Mládež Ulice (Street Youth)



Mládež Ulice (Street Youth) is a Slovakian children's charity based in Bratislava. They provide free time activities and social services for children and teenagers from socially disadvantaged environments via a "street-work" program.  They provide counselling, prevention programs and support for effective free time activities.

One of the districts where they work is in Bratislava's Rača neighborhood (Východné).  In May 2015 they were forced to close their club for the children because the owners had other plans for the space.  Currently, the main part of their work happens in the Sklabinská playground where the youngsters spend their free time. They were forced to use space in the local pub when the weather was bad (especially in winter of course). In the playground or the pub they don't have the privacy required to have intimate talks about sensitive issues, and they are unable to do structured activities to develop the social skills of the youngsters.
TACC's donation will allow the charity to have a sheltered private location (portcabin) on the playground that will really help address these issues. Also this will attract more youngsters who don´t want to be just "outside“.  Mládež Ulice really appreciate TACC's donation and send a huge thank you to Scotland's fans on behalf of the street kids.  And thanks again to the pipers for attending the donation and entertaining the locals.
