There are two forms of care for 4500 children living in orphanages in Slovakia. Firstly, children live with qualified families who are related to an orphanage worker. The second form is a family simulation where children live in groups that resemble a family. The group consists mainly of 10 children, 2 educators and 3 auxiliary tutors. Our group consists of children living in family homes in the villages near the town of Michalovce. These are primary and secondary level students. They devote their free time to learning dance and singing. They take part in various artistic activities at school and beyond. Despite the problems they face, they are happy to share their skills and talents.
