We aim to promote the wellbeing of children, young people, and families through a set of concrete actions toward everyday life’s environment. We especially focus on strengthening the community between children, youth, and families, and supporting children’s opportunities for pursuing hobbies, and increasing their participation in daily activities. We try out and develop new operating models in an attempt to holistically improve the living environment of children, youth, and families.
