Children's Center "Sonyiachne Svitlo," Trebukhiv village, Brovary District

Children’s centre successfully brings up and helps children who need particular care (orphaned children, children who have survived mental and physical violence in family and children deprived of parental, guardian and state care).  Centre is designed for 20 children. There are 19 children living in the Centre today.

How did it all begin?

In March 2002, not far from Kiev, in Trebuhiv village, Marek and Natali Wnuk opened a non-governmental social rehabilitation children’s center called «Sunlight Children’s Center.» They served at-risk children, including orphans and street children.


The mission of Sunlight Children’s Center is to bring effective help to children in need, so that they can achieve a happy and meaningful life.

 Our approaches

In our work, we rely on the best practices in therapy, psychology, and social work.

We supply our children with all necessary conditions for effective assistance to a child who has experienced psychological trauma.

We use a unique method of social and psychological rehabilitation with children who have experienced trauma — Pedagogics of Adventure.

We use our positive experience in working with children to help other professionals interested in improving their work.

 Our values and culture

The dignity of every child is of most value to us. Our children take this sense of dignity into the future when they leave our Center.

Our culture is based around professionalism and self-development of each professional which results in respect toward others, and longstanding cooperation to produce the maximum service for each child.
