Support is so much more than giving a donation

Children of Saraj church in Skopje
Traveling Light supports mostly small scale projects that have been set up by local people. This also means we will always do our best to build personal relationships with the people requesting our help.

Offering help doesn't stop with a financial gift, this is actually where the projects starts.

If you have been reading this weblog for a while, you must have noticed that we try to stay in contact with the people behind the projects and that sometimes we are able to do follow-up projects; which is a great way to build long-term relationships. It also happens that we receive specified gifts from supporters who have a certain project or country on their hearts.

Making gifts for mothers day
We recently received a gift for the work of Sokrat & Lena Apostolovski among the Roma children in Skopje, Macedonia. We visited them again this past February. We love to see how they encourage the children to use their creative talents! Doing arts & crafts together may be normal for most of us and our children, but this is certainly not the case everywhere.

We also received a gift for the work in the rehabilitation home of Teen Challenge in Slovenia. We were there last month for a visit. In the picture you see us with Marjan, do you remember Marjan? He is doing well, he has a job, an apartment and he volunteers at the Dennis Griffith House in Nova Vas.

Posing for the weblog :)
We regularly receive photo's, cards, news letters, thank you notes and emails from all corners of Europe... but also requests for help. We currently have 10 projects on a waiting list! We can only promise them help if you decide to support and continue to support us.

If you still want to give a donation for project sewage treatment plant Teen Challenge in Poland, please send your donation as soon as possible to:
