If you are born into the vicious cycle of poverty, you are likely to remain in it all your life. Let's help those who were less fortunate at birth to build their way out.

Despite the economic growth, hundreds of thousands of people in Slovakia still live in extreme poverty into which they were born and from which they can not escape. The Omama Project is trying to break the vicious cycle of poverty in two places. It develops the personalities of children from an environment affected by extreme poverty at a key early age (0-6), which can be detrimental for their success in their next life. Early childhood is the most important period of life for each of us. In the first year of life, 700 to 1,000 new neural connections are created every second. At the age of three, the brain reaches 80% of its size. However, numerous studies have shown that poverty reduces the number of beneficial stimuli for child brain development and healthy personality growth. Early care projects for children born into generational poverty are not being implemented in Slovakia even though they have a potential to make a huge difference. You can help us kick off the Omama project as the first one of its kind. In addition to providing early intervention to young children, the project will help particular individuals living in poverty, particularly women, to acquire education, work habits and meaningful work which will ultimately help them find stable employment.

Omamas already making a difference

Four months ago, we made a rather bold commitment to you that if you support us, we will employ one to three Omamas in the poorest communities in Slovakia in order to build a better foundation for children from birth up. Thank you for believing in us. Thanks to your donations, four Omamas have started working this week in the first three Roma settlements - in Zborov, Muránska Dlhá Lúka and Kecerovce. Take a look at a few photos depicting their work. Viac.

40 for Omamas

On Sunday, July 22nd, I will turn 40. Yes, the big 4-0. One thing that can help me get through this mildly depressing milestone in my life is that I hope to use is to support a cause I strongly believe in. Viac.
