From the very beginning, NGO AGENDA was included in the programs of support to the residents of Gazela and Belvil, through the census of Gazela; the programs for support in learning in temporary settlements Makis 1; and then through the coverage of 123 children from 5 temporary settlements (Makis 1 and 2, Rakovica 1 and 2 and Kamendin).
This year (2017), through the project “In FOCUS” supported by the City of Belgrade – the Secretariat for Social Protection, we will continue to provide support to children and mothers displaced from Gazela and Belville, but this time moved to social apartments in Orlovsko naselje (Orlovsky settlement) and Jabucki Rit. Support, which as so far, includes the provision of tutorial support in the learning for children of school age, cultural and educational activities for children and social and educational lectures for mothers and women. We are extremely proud that we are with the inhabitants of Gazelle and Bellevue from their first to the present, we hope, the final step, to provide support to the youngest and most vulnerable children and women.
The pictures show the excursion and computer workshop we organized for children accompanied by one mother, teacher and with great help from volunteers and generosity of IACBGD.

L. P. is a Romani single mother of 3 under-aged girls. She came to Belgrade 9 years ago, with a group of cousins from small town and they are now living under the bridge in big city.
Her living situation is difficult. They are living in a 15m2 shack made out of wooden planks and nylon collected from the near by dump. There is no access to water, and electricity is coming from neighboring houses.
She owns a furnace, that she made by her self using old barrel, two beds, old cabinet
and a TV. Her daily job was to collect garbage. Daily, along with children, she walks more than 10 kilometers in order to raise enough cardboard and old things.
NGO Agenda assisted her in the process of obtaining legal documents, and registration taxes in Belgrade, connected her with social work and school, as well as, assisted her with donations of clothes, shoes and school supplies.
As part of the system, soon L. was eligible for child benefits and social assistance. Steady income has helped this single mother greatly, her 3 daughters go to school regularly now, they have clothes and shoes. Furthermore, L. herself started to go to school for adults.
L. is now using sewing machine donated from a Church in Iowa.
Agenda has been helping this family from 2012.
