Helping with studies


Sadly, nowadays, the opportunities to study in modern Estonia is not always about the children’s abilities, but also how their families handle themselves socially and economically. This is why we have always put an emphasis on helping children who want to study but are unable to for different reasons.

Thanks to the supporters of the foundation, we have had the pleasure of helping almost 300 children to devote themselves to their studies. Yet there are still children, who need support. And a lot of it.

Supporting children

We have taken it as our mission to help boost the living standards of children with special needs. According to the Internet portal “Ratastool”: Disabilities are not diseases or accidents, disabilities are a way of life. We are certain that it is that way, however, our society and at certain points the people with disabilities themselves do not always believe in it. That is why we support all things related to boosting the living standards of the young with disabilities and things that give them a chance to try new things.

In 2007, we created the Indrek foundation to serve the purpose to support activities that are for people with disabilities. We have had the pleasure to support many different initiatives, however, numerous ideas that would help improve the lives of people with disabilities are still waiting to come to life with donations from all the good people in the world.

Counseling families


Although most parents want all the best for their children and raise them as best they can, the skills necessary for parenting are not born with the child. Sometimes becoming a parent might become to be a long and difficult journey and they might need all the help they can get. We help those kinds of people through our support person network, who consult parents on how to take care of their children and how to create a safe environment for them to develop in.

Helping families financially


Estonian children have had to pay a great price to live through the financial recession. Today there are almost 23 000 children in Estonia, who live in complete poverty, meaning they only have around 69€ per month. These families do not have the resources to buy food, firewood, fixing the roof and not to mention children’s interests or road trips in school.

No children in Estonia should grow up in poverty. Thanks to kind donators we have been able to support those families with all the emergency things, but there is still a lot to do.

Promoting mental health


Bullying, children without care, alcoholism among parents and crime. These are the kinds of stories we hear a lot of and often we hear about them being related to some sad individual case. Situations like these require a lot of attention that in todays world, it does not get enough.

This is the reason we have started to put a lot more emphasis on people’s mental health. We want people to avoid problems by predicting them and to see, ask for help and to offer it.

We have created a foundation called Luiga allfond, which we use to give scholarships to those, whose studies, scientific and journalism work is aimed at promoting the improvement of mental health or to shine more light on that department in the media.

If you need a support person

Support people are people who can manage their own life well and are ready to share their knowledge and experience with You. A support person might be helpful to an entire family, but also to a child.

Who to contact?

Support people service is a service managed by the local government. Therefore, to use that service, you must contact a social worker from the local government. Unfortunately, most local governments do not offer this kind of service or do not fund it yet, but it is worth a shot to ask anyway. If enough people show interest in that kind of service, then that is helpful towards getting the local government to offer it.

It is also possible to contact a social worker if you know someone who needs support. Based on the information that is provided, the social worker can start to work on the case and figure out if and what kind of help that person might need.

One of these possibilities is to use our network of non-profit organizations, who are always in contact with support people. All our support people are certified and ready to help.

Ka on igal inimesel võimalus anda sotsiaaltöötajale teada inimesest, kes võib ajada tugiisikut. Antud info põhjal saab sotsiaaltöötaja ise tegutsema hakata ja välja selgitada, kas ja millist abi inimesel vaja võiks minna.

Üheks vüimaluseks teenust saada on võtta ise ühendust meie võrgustikku kuuluvate MTÜ-dega, kes koondavad tugiisikuid. Kõik meie võrgustiku tugiisikud on läbinud tugiisiku koolituse.

Need some other help

You might be in a difficult situation and need help in order to continue on with life. Or you might have seen someone who might need help. Contact us and we will find a solution together

We have handled multiple crisis situations within families. For example, we have found a support person, who consults and supports families or helps keep the children safe. We have also obtained firewood, beds and school supplies, we have built roofs and chimneys and also paid for children’s hobbies/exercises. The foundation never directly pays to the people in need, but they pay for whatever the applicants might think be necessary

Oleme leevendanud paljude perede kriisisituatsioone. Näiteks leidnud perele tugiisiku, kes nõustab ja toetab vanemaid või hoiab lapse turvalisusel peres silma peal. Ka oleme muretsenud küttepuid, voodeid ja koolitarbeid, ehitanud katused ja korstnaid ning tasunud laste ringide-trennide eest. Fond ei maksa kunagi raha otse abivajajaile, vaid tasub vastavalt taotlusele vajamineva arve.

Palun täida ära taotlusvorm ja me võtame Sinuga ühendust.
