Who we are

The Diaconal centre is closely connected with the Cross ev. Luth. Congregation in Liepaja, Latvia. The aims of the Diaconal center are:

Why we are involved in SEMPRE

The project fits to our situation where many people, especially in the rural areas, find it very difficult to overcome poverty and depression. We hope that the project will help us to support on a long-term basis the initiatives of our partners in the region of Liepaja, by strengthening the regional and international network and by developing a sustainable structure for mutual support, exchange of experience and strategic planning.

What will be the most important result of SEMPRE?

We would like to achieve that all the different NGOs and municipial institutions establish a regular cooperation with a clear strategy to improve the situation of people with disabilities in the region of Liepaja.

Whom we are working with

Our LEN works with all those organizations in the public and nongovernmental sector that are interested to improve the living and working conditions of people with disabilities. The end-user group are people with mental and physical handicaps. There are representatives involved from three local social service providers from the Liepaja region, from the associated partner the social department of the city of Liepaja, as well as from Chamber of Commerce, the regional newspaper and different NGOs.
