We would like to support and promote our activities and public relations by applying a new logo and visual appearance of the site, which was designed by Mgr. art. Robert Paršo.

Our new logo depicts Gaštanko with a green knightly helmet. He symbolizes a child who can feel safe in various situations that await him in the adult world thanks to our help.

Every second week of June we organize an open day. We will be glad to present our work to parents and visitors, answer their questions and, moreover, we will play and compete with the kids. Children will also meet the real Gaštanko.
