In 2012, the community of Viekšniai established a children day care center. The purpose is to provide these children with a safe and secure environment, to ensure creative leisure time, to teach them communication and social behavior, to help them with their homework and offer hot meals. The day care center is managed by Maltese volunteers and social pedagogues with a lot of empathy and creativity.
However, the building of the day care center is in a very poor condition and does by far not meet hygienic requirements. Therefore the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation will renovate now the homework room, the play room, the kitchen and the restrooms.
