The way of development
directions of work
By the vision, mission and goals of the organization, the priority areas of work for 2021-2026 are:
Creation and development of a training system based on a competency-based approach, best domestic and international practices and research
Development of the capacity of organizations and workers in the social sphere
Development of sustainability and capacity of ILDC to implement the training system
We are convinced that any activity we carry out should bring changes and be significant and valuable for society. Each of us considers the mission of ILDC essential and contributes to its implementation
We consider it essential to create a safe environment for the child. A competent adult should be next to each child: parents, social and medical workers, teachers, etc. This is embedded in our mission and is our top priority
We are confident in the effectiveness of mechanisms of social influence. The results of the study of the impact of the ILDC showed that the organization’s activities affect people’s lives: changes in the attitude of social workers, changes in the level of provision of social services, the perspective of the authorities to adoptive parents, changes at the legislative level, changes in the lives of families and children
We believe in the importance of human relationships. Staying focused on our purpose and goals, we believe that relationships (within the team and with partners) help in achieving them
We believe every child should live in a family or conditions close to family. The only place where a child’s needs can be met is the family. It plays an essential role in the formation and development of the child’s personality. Also, the family is a sense of security, the basis for the formation of a model of behaviour and interpersonal relations
We share Christian values because love for one’s neighbour, the value of everyone’s life, mercy and patience are the fundamental values of social work
