The Stops of Welfare

Well-being Stations Project

The Well-Being Stations Project aims to help orphaned children and their mothers to cope with the loss they have experienced and to alleviate the psychological impact of this loss on them. The project determines the needs of the target group consisting of orphans and social orphan children and their mothers through objective methods, develops programs that will respond to such needs and makes post-implementation evaluations. These evaluations are used both to analyze the effectiveness of the programs and to bring the programs into a more suitable form with the findings obtained.

The Wellbeing Stations Project aims to reduce the risk factors in the life of the target group and increase the support factors by developing “intervention” programs. With the activities carried out as part of the project, it is planned to encourage the mental, emotional and social development of children. In addition, activities are carried out to increase the academic success of the children involved in the project, and art and skill workshops are organized in order to improve children's skills in the developmental period in multiple fields based on the theory of multiple intelligences. Psychological support programs and training activities are organized for mothers as well as children, and efforts are made to strengthen women spiritually, improve their parenting skills, and reduce negative discipline methods towards their children through the programs used.

Activities carried out for orphan children and their mothers within the scope of the project include:

  • Individual/group psychotherapy service for children and their mothers
  • Arts & Skills & Games Workshops for Children
  • Culture and art trips
  • Well-being project
  • Psychoeducational studies for mothers and children
  • Cooperation with schools
