Action for the Homeless

The Community Project is a major activity that MYP3 students need to complete in the final year of the MYP programme at Matija Gubec International School. The community project gives us an opportunity to address the needs in various communities through service learning.

There are more than 1000 people in Croatia who do not have a home, and very often no family. The luckier ones sleep in shelters, the others spend the whole year in the streets. We cannot give them a home, but we can definitely help. So, as the topic of our Community Project this year we have decided to make their lives better by giving them Something to Call Their Own. We cannot help all of them, but even if we help one, the world is already a better place.

We would like to buy them thermos bottles, pay for breakfast bagels for a month (as most of them can get only lunch in soup kitchens) or similar small things we will agree on with the Croatian network for homeless people. We would like to thank you for your generosity and the donations for the homeless. With your help, their everyday life in the cold streets will be a bit easier and we are going to make sure that the money you donated gets to those who need it most.

We would like to wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. May your homes be filled with warmth and joy!

Lovro and Marko F. (MYP3)
