The aim of this project was the prevention of child abandonment among first-time mothers faced with the risk of abandoning their child.
Objective: preventing child abandonment
Beneficiaries: first-time mothers faced with the risk of abandoning their child
Activities undertaken during the project:
The project developed on two axes:
Support axis: the mothers benefited from specialized assistance from social and medical professionals, with a view to overcoming risky situations.
Help axis: a network of reference mothers was formed, consisting of former beneficiaries, who had overcome difficult situations. These reference mothers (a part of them are founding members of the association) have greatly helped the new beneficiaries through their personal example.
Results: By the end of 2006, 185 children were supported by ACSIS in order for them to be raised by their families.
