Eesti Erinoorsootöö Ühing noOR – noOR to friends – was created in 2004 with the aim to increase the participation of special needs youth in the society, however, all youngsters are very welcome to participate in our activities. In fact we believe that each and every one of us is simply unique and therefore it is important for us to approach youngsters individually – so that everyone could participate and share their experience.
Our local and international projects are accessible – our rooms can be visited with wheelchair, if necessary we can organise special transport or hire sign language translators. There are volunteers native Russian speaking volunteers in our team and we possess a strong will to involve anyone who is interested in self-developing activities.
A large part of our current activities make up international youthwork projects, such as EVS (European Voluntary Service), youthexchanges and trainings. In those projects we participate both as the coordinating and sending organisation. International youthwork projects have given us thorough knowledge on intercultural learning, project management and youthwork, which we now wish to share in various trainings with Estonian youth.
Our partners are youth centers and schools, such as Tallinna Tugikeskus Juks, Päevakeskus Käo, Tallinna Kadaka Põhikool, Päevakeskus Vinger MTÜ, and others. We are always opened to new partners who are interested in involving special needs youth.
Currently we are in the process of develeoping social enterprise capabilities through screen printing techniques.
