The Kanikuli organisation was founded in May 2006. Our aims are to support and improve the lives of people with varying disabilities in Belarus. The seven founder members have all spent at least a year in the capital Minsk as part of their voluntary service work.
"Kanikuli" is the russian word for holiday and this is one of our main projects. We organise summer camps for children and adults who live in state boarding homes in Minsk. These summer camp are held in specially built facilities close to Minsk. There we want to give the participants the chance to escape their mundane daily life. Therefore we work together with belarussian volunteers.
Another important aspect of our work is to promote social integration and independence of people with disabilities in Belarus. So we work closely with the belarussian NGO Rasnye- Ravnye (engl. Different - Equal) and we have done several succesful projects.
