Homes

There are Bambi Homes in 4 cities, established according to specific criteria : needs analysis, knowledge of local circumstances, presence of competent, motivated and reliable local staff who execute our mission. They all contribute to this endeavor – proudly and professionally, honoring our donors’ trust.

Under the National Director’s coordination, the local Home managers carry out their task, creating public- private partnerships. The Homes work with  social workers, kindergarden staff, nurses and auxiliary staff. They call on specialists in order to ensure the necessary nutritional, medical, psychological and affective equilibrium which is a precondition for the childrens’ development. Owing to the growing experience of our staff, we continuously improve our work.
