Participating Facilities & Our Support Matrix

A tremendous amount of time and effort continues to be expended by the leader of the Speechless project, Matěj Keka, finding appropriate facilities for children without adequate parental care with which to partner on this project.

He spent more than a month operating out of Belgrade, Serbia, traveling to the other countries, meeting with facility directors and narrowing down choices. He also presented to Rotary clubs and met with government officials in the target countries.

Online meetings then took place between Matěj, facility directors and other members of the project team, in order to build trust among all parties involved, and ensure that everyone understands their responsibilities.

The list of participating facilities currently looks as follows, but is subject to change based on several factors, not the least of which is government and guardian permissions.

We will soon go through the process of choosing the 6 teenagers who will participate from each country. At the same time, Rotary clubs will be added to our matrix of support, and we also have positive feedback from several government officials.

Keep watching this page as our support expands!
