“Ümidli Gələcək” (“Reliable Future”) Youth Organization has launched the program of “Reintegration and rehabilitation of street children” at “Ümid Yeri” children’s shelter with the initiative and request of Azercell Telecom. The program includes assessment of primary social, psychological and legal needs of the children, study of causes of being exposed to street life and drafting individual care and development plan.
