In the last few months, the Azerbaijani NGO Alliance for Children has dedicated its attention to prevent child abandonment and to protect and socially include disabled children. Therefore, the NGO Alliance will support the activity of the “Independent Life Development and Support Centre” whose aim is to prevent child abandon by ensuring the access of families and children in difficult situations to social services and to prevent the placement of vulnerable children in institutions.

Moreover, the NGO Alliance has been currently integrated within the Board of Azerbaijani Children’s Paralympics Committee whose purpose is to socially integrate disabled children while allowing them free access to get involved in sports activities.
