“Creativity not criminality” is the new slogan of Karosta Kids, a youth organization which had received the award of one of the best organizations in Liepaja, in 2013.

In conversation with Tatyana Tarasova, the chairman of board, we discovered some of the activities which make the everyday life of Karosta Kids:

On Mondays, at 5 p.m., the volunteers of this organization leads craft, sport lessons. Tuesday is time for youngsters to discuss about serious topics, like conflict management. On Wednesdays, all are invited to join the sewing workshops. Thursday is time to improve music and vocal skills which starts at 3 p.m. To end well the week, Karosta Kids watch a movie on Friday.

Karosta kids are looking for sponsors who support their daily decision of being creative instead of criminal.

At the same time, there are other activities taking place in this youth center: decoration, cooking and soap-making are just some of the examples.

“Everybody is invited to join the activities”, says Tatyana, “but, in order to keep up the good work, Karosta Kids are looking for sponsers who want to support creativity, instead of criminality”.

If you want to be a part of this great family to whom we called Karosta Kids, you have two options: join the organization as a volunteer or make a donation. Be aware that all donation are tax-deductible.

In every part of the world there are kids looking for a place to call their home.  In Karosta, that place is called Karosta Kids, a youth organization where you can easily find talented kids with hard familiar backgrounds.

Their story started with the story of Tatjana Tarasova, one of the founders. At the age of 16, Tatjana only had disappointment and broken dreams; but because a man believed in her and helped her to afford an education, now Tatjana is a psycologist who wants to pay forward what was given to her: support, inspiration, faith and, most important, a chance to be creative instead of criminal.
