We collect donations for the renovation of the association’s space – construction of new toilets (male, female, for staff, shower) to meet the requirements of the Ordinance on minimum requirements for providing social services for obtaining a license from the Ministry of Labor, Pensions, Family and Social Policy.

09.11.2020. City walk and drawing workshop

Today we drew self-portraits!

The atmosphere was positive, cheerful and pleasant – just for the start of the weekend!

On Wednesday, 21.10.2020., our hardworking and creative DIPs have completed their real little works of art. We painted in acrylic on canvas with the addition of details that reminded us of autumn and breathed new life into them. All of you will soon be able to see these wonderful works live, as they will be exhibited at one of the future eco fairs Zeleni Kastav. But more on that when the time comes. We are very proud of our DIPs and their interpretation of the fall and look forward to these works being visible and exposed to the public, as a lot of effort has been put into our “DIP’s Fall”. Well done everyone!

20.10.2020. Creative workshop

Today, 10/20/2020, we were very hardworking and creative and we painted the day with autumn colors and different experiences of autumn. We transferred the autumn that arrived to us to the painting canvas. Yes, I will reveal something else to you … Namely, you will be able to see our works in another place besides the DIP, but more on that soon.

We can not wait!

Well done everyone, you were great!

12.10.2020. Socializing, tidying up rooms and letter box workshops

On Monday, 12.10.2020., we started the week by hanging out in DIP with a chat and a cup of fine tea. We then “threw ourselves” into the work and tidied up the two rooms, and we ended up creatively, making letter boxes. Well done everyone, you were great. To be continued tomorrow … 🙂

09.10.2020. Lavender workshop and birthday celebration

Today we filled bags with lavender for sale at the Zeleni Kastav fair, hung out a bit, and then celebrated 5 (five) birthdays with music and joy with pizzas, cake and pie baked by our dear Irena Kukurin Barić. Happy birthday and all the best to Ana, Kiki, Bruni, Eli and Mia!

07.10.2020. Educative workshop

The day passed in an educational tone. We dealt with the rules in the DIP. Some we repeated and we also add some new rules. Bravo team on the proposals, now all that remains is for all of us to continue to adhere to the above and work on our small community to become even stronger and better.

06.10.2020. Creative workshop and cleaning up our place

We were very hardworking today. We drew greeting cards, filled our bags with lavender and cleaned the space. Well done everyone, you were great. The sequel follows tomorrow.

05.10.2020. Creative workshop

Today, 10/5/2020, we started the week creatively. We drew congratulation letters for our DIP members celebrating their birthday on Friday.

Now we are just waiting for Friday and the reactions of the celebrants.

01.10.2020. Creative workshop

The DIP was again a real small handicraft factory. We prepared our octopus with lavender, filled sewn bags, cut declarations and in any case were very hardworking and productive. Our volunteers Doris and Tina also joined us. Well done everyone, you were great! Thanks to our Mirko Jovičić for the photos.

30.09.2020. Visiting friends from the Association of People with Intellectual Disabilities Srce Rijeka

Yesterday, 9/30/2020, we were visiting our dear friends from Association of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities Srce Rijeka.
We hung out a lot, worked and we were very creative and productive. Thank you Srce for the hospitality and the pictures they painted together with our DIP members for our new space. You’re wonderful! We look forward to the next meeting.
Also, thanks to our Mirko Jovičić who recorded our gathering yesterday with a camera. Great photos, as always. 📷

29.9.2020. Creative workshop

We were very diligent today. Cut, sew, clean – there’s nothing we didn’t do! Bravo team, you were great! 🙂

28.9.2020. Creative workshop

Yesterday. 9/28/2020, we were again very creative and hardworking. 💪 We did a “mosaic” of drawings, to see once again how important each of us is in creating togetherness and how it is precisely because of our differences that the final image is full of variegation, colors and interesting moments. In the end, we made a whole out of all the drawings, which we will stick on a hammer and then hang somewhere in our new space. In addition to all that, we also dealt with the topic of the autumn that has just arrived. 🍂

Bravo everyone, you were great! 💪🤩👌

25.09.2020. Croatia volunteers - activity 2

Today, 9/25/2020, in a good mood and rested, we continued where we left off with activities from the day before. So we cleaned the lavender again, cut the material, filled our Vanda bags, but also sewed. Some already know this very well, and some have just learned it today. Again we were very cheerful, loud, curious and hardworking and in large numbers, despite the rain. In a tone of socializing and learning, we closed our doors, but only until Monday. We are in new activities together on Monday. And yes, although the Open Doors Association event is over, ours is always open to all those interested in our work. We are building an expensive community that cares! Thanks to our official photographer Mirko Jovičić for the great photos from the Open Day at DIP.

24.09.2020. Croatia volunteers - Activity 1

💖Yesterday, Thursday 24.9.2020., it was supposed to be a “day out”, that is, we were supposed to go to our garden on Viškovo, where as part of the tenth manifestation of Croatian volunteers, they would plant plants and arrange the environment. However, as the rain disrupted our plans, Wenzelova 2 was a place to socialize and work, so instead of a garden, we arranged our hallway by adding photos, posters and drawings from some past activities. We were joined by our volunteer from the USA, missionary Beth Witten Lamb, who has often been helping us with other missionaries in recent months. We cleaned lavender, sewed and filled bags, laughed, hung out, were very hardworking and opened the door wide to all those who want to “sketch” everything that is done in the DIP. All of you who are interested in what is “cooked” here, come to the DIP, get to know us and our work. We are building community that cares!

21.09.2020. Creative workshop

Today, 9/21/2020, our DIPs started the week by drawing. First, the papers with the previously written names of all those present were drawn, and after everyone drew the name of the other, the drawing started. In addition to the drawing, everyone had to write something they like about the person they are drawing with, ie some of their good qualities.

In the second part of today’s task, we talked a lot about interpersonal relationships and reminisced about how we should treat each other and how we want others to treat us, and concluded that respect, understanding, patience, tolerance and trust are the basis of any healthy relationship, no matter if it’s a friendly, love, family or some other type of relationship.

This was a very interesting, colorful, educational and creative start of the week.

Until tomorrow, nice greetings and love, respect and take care of each other.

18.09.2020. Creative workshop

Today, 9/18/2020, we drew for the first time in our new space. We painted a variety of different shapes, animals and plants. It was very cheerful, creative, loud and full of laughter. See you next week. Have a nice weekend everyone!

13. - 17.09.2020. Education of the expert team in Medulin within the ESF project Zajedno kroz život/Together through life (3rd day)

Zajedno kroz život (together throughlife) is a great project because we get new motivation and inspiration for what we do – it’s easier when we see that we are not alone! Thanks to everyone, Ozren and Marko, the hosts who allowed us to see how the people they work for live !🙂

13. - 17.09.2020. Education of the expert team in Medulin within the ESF project Zajedno kroz život/Together through life (2nd day))

12.9.2020. From prevention to health - Nordic walking as part of the Health Week in Viškovo

The Municipality of Viškovo is the holder of the project From Prevention to Health – and this activity is one of the activities that will take place from 7 to 12 September 2020 in Viškovo. The costs for the implementation of this activity, including water, were provided by the ESF, the project holder is the Municipality of Viškovo, and the Municipality of Lopar is a partner. The DIP is an associate and has provided Nordic walking sticks for those who don’t have them and an introductory lesson on Nordic walking! We did the exercise for today, and you? 🙂 We thank everyone who participated in Nordic walking in Viškovo as part of the Health Week and we thank #OpćinaViškovo for initiating such actions and for involving us. It was great! We hope to hang out again on another occasion 😃

11.9.2020. Lavender preparation for scented bags

Today we started preparing lavender for our fragrant La Vanda bags and octopus Hilda. After that, we have prepared all the sticks for tomorrow – we hope that you will join us on the Nordic walking on the promenades in Viškovo tomorrow from 10 am to 12. See you!

10.9.2020. Workshop at garden in Viškovo

7.9.2020. Mobile team from "DIP's Youth Club" in Udruga Srce

Mobile team from “DIP’s Youth Club Ready, set, I’m working!

The mobile team for psychosocial support is active all summer preparing plans and procedures for working with DIP members and their families, but also members and their families gathered in the Association of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities Srce Rijeka, Club Srce Rijeka who are our partners in the program.

The mobile team employs 2 psychologists in cooperation with experts with whom we have been cooperating since the establishment of the DIP such as doctors, social pedagogues.

This is the first time in the history of civil society organizations in our sector that for the people we work for and their families there is a mobile team that will provide a social service of psychosocial support for 2 organizations. So last week we had meetings with our partners on the program “DIP Youth Club – Ready, set, I’m working!” funded by the Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy – now the Ministry of Labor, Pensions, Family and Social Policy.

This is the first step towards networking all the organizations that work for the people that our two associations work for! Our program “Ready, set, I’m working!” is co-financed by the Primorsko goranska županije, while the 3-year program “Comprehensive care for people with intellectual disabilities – phase 2.” co-financed by the same Ministry and the City of Rijeka.

Until our “old” volunteers / students return from their homes across Croatia and until the classes at the faculties start, these volunteers are with us helping us with their good will and obviously practice in helping! Thanks everyone! All these activities are part of our 3 year program “DIP’s Youth Club Ready, set, I’m working!” co-financed by the Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy and Primorsko goranska županija and other donors and you citizens, our friends.

Today our program team had a meeting in Udruga Srce.

20.8.2020. Medicinal herbs - online quiz and discussion

Yesterday, 20.8. we held another online activity, and the theme was medicinal herbs. Specifically, we solved the quiz about medicinal plants that grow in our area, find out what medicinal properties each plant possesses and for what purpose it is used. Many have already used some of the plants from the quiz, but there is always something new that can be learned. Our next task was to discuss herb and medicinal properties in the comments, and those who have gardens and balconies, including herbs, sent us pictures that we commented on together. Now all we have learned is that we need to transfer to our garden on Viškovo. ☘️🍃

19.8.2020. Endemic plants in Croatia - online quiz and discussion

Hello, guys,
today we have a fun quiz about special and rare plants in Croatia. It’s time to learn something new, and along the way remember what we’ve already learned. Endemic plant species are especially important and when we encounter them live we have to keep and watch them because they are rare and there is a great threat of their extinction if we do not pay special attention to them. Enjoy the quiz, and after the quiz share with others your result and impressions of what you liked the most and which plant is your favorite.
Another task for today is to paint a beautiful flower or plant in your area and post a photo in the comments with a description of why you chose that particular flower.

18.8.2020. Decorating the new place

Today, 18.8., we continued the working action of preparing the new DIP space in Wenzelova Street. We are working hard, unpacking, rearranging, drilling, stacking, cleaning, envying and unscrewing so that everything is ready to work with our DIP members as soon as possible. Although we are very tired, we are just as excited about the new space and the new beginning. There is progress in the business, but at least we are not afraid of work.

17.8.2020. Decorating the new place

Today, 8/17/2020, we have started with mounting, rearranging and arranging new space… discarded furniture, materials, archives need to be arranged and all this is on the backs of our young forces because when you work in the civil sector you do not ask who is a psychologist or artist, computer scientist or anything .. everyone does what they need to do, cleans, paints, monitors, drills, pushes and wears… and the one who works for the common good knows a little more and will start regular activities with a lot of new rules and activities, and until then our divers will be involved in a variety of activities, from online to helping with stacking .. because it’s not all going to be done.

p.s. we are constantly updating our website with new / old materials, so take a look and read a little about us..of course: photos taken by Mirkec
