Orphans Opportunity Centre 'Step Up'

'STEP UP' IS AN EDUCATIONAL CENTRE FOR ORPHANS AND GRADUATES
OF SCHOOLS FOR CHILDREN WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY, WHERE
YESTERDAY'S GRADUATES RECEIVE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE NECESSARY
FOR LIFE IN SOCIETY.

IN ADDITION TO THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM, THE CENTRE IS DEVELOPING
A NUMBER OF ITS OWN PROJECTS SUCH AS A KINDERGARTEN, A SERIES
OF WORKSHOPS, A FOOTBALL TEAM, THE EMPLOYMENT CENTRE, SUMMER
CAMP AND OTHERS.

THE HISTORY OF OUR ACQUAINTANCE WITH THE CENTRE IS A HAPPY
COINCIDENCE, WHICH HAS BECOME THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP
AND PRO BONO COLLABORATION. WE REDESIGNED THE CENTRE'S LOGO,
DEVELOPED PROMOTIONAL MATERIALS, HELPED WITH DESIGN OF
WORKSHOP'S PRODUCTION AND RELEASED STEP UP'S FIRST BOOK.


IT WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK ON THE BOOK 'LOVE AND FEED AND OTHER
METHODS OF SOCIAL ADAPTATION', WHICH WAS THE RESULT OF FIVE YEARS
OF THE CENTRE'S WORK. WE HAVE TRIED TO MAKE IT AS SIMPLE AND WARM
AS THE ATMOSPHERE IN 'STEP UP'. 

EARNING MONEY IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS
FOR A SOCIAL PROJECT. ‘RUKIOTTUDA’ WORKSHOP IS A PART
OF THE CENTRE, WHERE STUDENTS PRODUCE DIFFERENT GOODS
AND SELL THEM IN MARKETS.
​​​​​​​
WE DREW CLEAR AND SIMPLE INSTRUCTIONS AND MADE HAND-CUT
PRINTING FORMS FOR PACKAGING. OUR GOAL WAS TO MAKE CHEAP
AND HANDY LEAFLETS FOR A SOCIAL PROJECT.
