About Agroinvest Foundation Serbia



Agroinvest Foundation Serbia was established in 2011. Work of the Foundation is dedicated to the well being of children in Serbia, especially children belonging to vulnerable groups.

Decades of exposure to wars, violence and poverty left deep marks on lives of families and children. In the prolonged period of transition it is necessary to provide additional systematic care and develop sustainable social protection services for all the children in need.

Although several important reform processes in the field of social protection have been initiated, there are many challenges that all stakeholders in the field of child welfare and protection are facing. After a decade of reforms there is still a pressing need for the presence of international organizations and funds to support the work of civil society organizations as service providers, as well as institutions of social protection that need to be strengthened for their new roles in the social protection system.
