For Christmas 2019, we have decided to give the children and young people at the South Tirol Children's Village a special treat and invite them to a Winter Sports' Day. Whether skiing, snowboarding, tobogganing or simply hiking through the snow and enjoying the winter landscape, the children and young people from the 6 houses in the children's village can enjoy a fun-filled, care-free day in the snow. "A break from everyday routine is particularly important for children and young people living through difficult situations. Here they can recharge their batteries, switch off from difficult family life and enjoy new experiences to widen their horizons", explains Heinz Senoner, Director of the South Tirol Children's Village. "Because of the high costs associated with this type of winter sports event, these activities can only be arranged through donations. We are therefore delighted to accept TechnoAlpin's invitation to get all of our children and young people out in the snow". Between January and March 2020, the children and young people together with their supervisors/carers, will visit a South Tyrolean ski resort on various dates and participate in winter sports. TechnoAlpin will pay for all of their equipment, ski passes and meals.
The South Tirol Children's Village was founded in 1955 and has been supporting children, young people and their parents, whose lives do not always go to plan, ever since. It welcomes children and young people who are temporarily unable to live in their own homes and houses them in family-style accommodation or shared flats. Around 50 children and young people between three and 21 years of age are currently living in the Children's Village which are located in Brixen and Meran.
