About the Foundation

Two additional Crisis Centers for Children with our help

For the past two years the 'Let Them Dream' – Danilo Türk Foundation has also been putting their mission to help children, victims of all forms of abuse into realization by financially supporting the establishment and running of the tenth Slovenian crisis centre – the Nova Gorica Crisis Centre for Children and Youth (from whence it got its name “Desetka” - meaning “tenth” in Slovenian) and the Žarek Day Centre (it gets it name from the word "Žarek" - meaning "ray of sunshine" in Slovenian), also in Nova Gorica. Both centres are intended for children and youth who are looking for a path to adulthood and want or need professional help.

We became sponsors to ten children

The 'Let Them Dream' – Danilo Türk Foundation approached the ‘Child Sponsorship in Slovenia’ programme, a humanitarian project of the Slovenian Association of Friends of Youth Moste-Polje for the aid of children and youth in crisis situations. In 2013, the 'Let Them Dream' – Danilo Türk Foundation will be sponsoring ten children from the Koroška region, aged 1 to 13, to give them a brighter future: Ajdin, Tanja, Katarina, Mare, Edmond, Matevž, Damir, Kristina, Lucija in Neža.

We built a kindergarten in Madagascar

In mid-September a kindergarten was built in the Slovenian missionary Pedro Opeka’s village in Madagascar, with the help of the funds raised at last year’s ‘Let Them Dream’ concert. The following is a letter from the missionary Pedro Opeka on the subject of this project.

Youth from the crisis centres on a cross-country skiing trip with Dr. Danilo Türk and Petra Majdič

Today, on 10 March, 2012, the 'Let Them Dream' – Danilo Türk Foundation went on a day trip which they had organized for a group of children from the youth crisis centres in Koper and Nova Gorica - where they spent time with the President of the foundation council, Dr. Danilo Türk, and the ambassador and volunteer for the foundation, Petra Majdič, who taught the children the basics of cross-country skiing.

We helped Erik’s family, now together let’s help others

In Slovenia there are too many children who, due to lack of material resources are deprived of many, even basic encouragements to lead a dignified life. They are trapped in a difficult and tragic situation in which there is no space to relax or laugh, let alone suffice for a positive and healthy development. In the 'Let Them Dream' – Danilo Türk Foundation, we listened to the shocking story of the not yet 13-year-old Erik, and together with other donors from the project ‘Child Sponsorship in Slovenia’ we helped him and his family out of their current situation.

Crisis centres for children and youth

Crisis centres represent a safe refuge for children who have been exposed to various forms of violence within their immediate family. There are many forms of child abuse, and many of the cases are examples of exceptionally cruel mental and physical abuse.
