Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi, Liepaja - Latvia
The child and youth union “Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi" (Liepajas
Young Falcons) was founded in 1993. Members are between 5
and 30 years old and are mostly young people with fewer
opportunities – most of them come from low income families. Our
aim is the promotion and protection of rights and interests of
children and the encouragement of active and creative youth
Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi supports young people in taking initiative and realising their
ideas. Together with the different age groups we organise international meetings,
sport days, camps, educational activities etc.
We want that young people become empowered to become active in the society, to
spend their leisure time as funny and productive as possible, to have an international
spirit and to be aware that children have the right to take decisions.
