Children in Poland love to participate in a wide range of programs that support children and their families in Poland.
Childcare workers feel that it was important to provide vulnerable families with direct support to enable them to take care of their children.
Working closely with local communities and authorities, individuals and groups run family-strengthening programs which ensure that children have access to essential services and also support parents with job-seeking and parenting skills.
Children whose parents cannot take the best care of them hope to find a loving home with one of many loving families.
Children under the age of 14 account for nearly 15 per cent of the population of Poland.
Although Poland has implemented legislation to protect children, the real situation of children leaves a lot to be desired.
The responsibility for improving the lives of children is shared between different ministries and levels of government working together.
