Where children learn to read. And much more.

Where children learn to read. And much more.

We were looking for women who changed their communities. In small ways. In everyday things. They often don’t see what they’ve come up with until a few years later when children tell them how superduper they felt in the mother centers. Women, how their world changed, how they received incentives.

Just try to imagine they weren’t here.

That all those good things would disappear.


So we at least tried to capture moments with Lujza Garajová-Schrameková and Daša Šimeková.

The mother center Sovička in Sečovce could be characterized in one word: there’s Sia, who teaches children to read. And not just her! But other moms, too! Book debates, a community library. But that’s not all! She turned a neglected city plot – along with many women – into a space for a community garden. And help for children from the excluded community in Jastrabí.

So take a moment to listen to the leader of the center Silvia Mokrišová.

These videos are being implemented as part of the “Women in The Community – from charity to equal work in communities” project, which is supported by the Domestic and Gender-Based Violence Programme financed by the Norwegian Financial Mechanism 2014 – 2021 and the state budget of the Slovak Republic.
