Namještaj Mima

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We believe that everyone must have equal conditions and that we should give our best so that our children can grow up in the best way possible, in an environment filled with tolerance and mutual understanding. That is why we at Namještaj Mima use every opportunity to support projects, organizations and institutions that share those values and that work to create a better life.

By investing a part of our profit in monetary and material donations we not only want to help those in need and who selflessly do good for others, but we also want to affect the promotion of all that is good, which is often left unnoticed. Therefore, we want to remind you to take some time to see who we helped by joining forces.

One good turn deserves another, and each of us should assume a part of the responsibility to the community as much as we can, because we are a part of this community – the community which we at Namještaj Mima share with our customers, employees and partners.

December, 2018.

A donation to animal healthcare associations

With the help of advice from our Facebook followers on international animal rights day, we donated to animal protection association Ruka Šapi, with volonteer initiative from Šinterice dobrog srca and Zadarski azil.

Animals have the right to be treated with respect body integrity and freedom of movement. We helped these associations with donations of 2000 kn in their animal protection and care endeavours.

Out of Love for Diversity project

In March of 2018, a project called Our of Love for Diversity was initiated in cooperation with the Suvenir Arbor institution. The institution is located in Sirač and was founded with the aim of social inclusion and rehabilitation of people with disabilities. It established itself as an institution for creating children's equipment and textile objects. All products are hand-made of natural materials. This led to cute pillows, shirts, toys and children's furniture being in our store.

The aim of the project is to raise public awareness about unequal opportunities and understanding the value of diversity.

We care about equal conditions for everybody, and that is why, with this project, we want to support social inclusion of people with disabilities – as equal and equally important. By buying some of the displayed products you can participate in creating a better environment – an environment which acknowledges the importance and value of diversity.

UDRUGA KRIJESNICA (FIREFLY ASSOCIATION)

In September of 2000, Udruga Krijesnica (Firefly Association) was established – an association for helping children with malignant illnesses and their families. The idea of forming such an organization resulted from the experiences of parents and medical staff of the Oncology Department of the Children's Hospital Zagreb and the need for spreading communication among parents and improving the quality of care for sick children. The fundamental goal of the Association is improving the quality of life of children with malignant illnesses and their families.

The members of Udruga Krijesnica (Firefly Association) include parents whose children are being treated in one of the oncology wards in Croatia, parents whose children successfully finished their treatment and those who lost their child due to a malignant illness.

PULA KINDERGARTEN DONATION

On 3 December 2014 we donated HRK 15,537.72 to Pula Kindergartens. We made a decision to do so because we are aware of the fact that our kindergarten teachers do not have enough supplies and we wanted to brighten up the kindergarten days of the young ones in Pula Kindergartens.
When talking to Principal Mariza Kovačević we learned that they want to equip a special sensomotoric room for children with disabilities, and we dedicated a certain part of funds for equipping that room.

Therefore, our donation to Pula Kindergartens consisted of the following:

– supplies (card stock, felt pens, colored pencils, collage paper, modeling clay...) worth HRK 8,011.73;

– white wooden shelves manufactured at the Namještaj Mima factory for kindergartens worth HRK 5,007.24;

– didactic toys (a tactile round white pillow, a large funnel and a wavy tactile road) worth HRK 2,518.75, the purchase of which enabled equipping the sensomotoric room in which children with disabilities can stay every day.

The joy and happiness in the eyes of the young children of Pula Kindergarten was a true and real proof that we have done a good thing!

SPONSORING THE ‘CHILD ON THE INTERNET’ BROCHURE BY THE BRAVE PHONE

A big problem in society is providing children with technology, but not providing them with rules for their safe use. Internet violence causes serious physical consequences which can be prevented with timely education.

Did you know that the age limit for creating a Facebook profile is 13 years? Did you know that 2 out of 3 children create a Facebook profile before they are 13?
According to research, 14% of underage children go alone on a date with an online ‘friend‘ who they did not know before that? 10% of underage children receive a pornographic or sexual message on their phone without wanting it.
The brochure talks about exposure to abuse and possible dangers through the internet, and gives advice for the parents to protect their children and reduce risks their children can face online.
All these terrifying data made us participate in and co-finance the printing of this very educational brochure for parents, because the LITTLE ONES DESERVE GREAT ATTENTION!

2014.

SOS Children's Village Croatia

SOS Children's Villages take care of children without parents or parental care, regardless of their race, nationality or religion, providing them with love and safety in a family environment, as well as a permanent home and education needed for a happy and peaceful childhood.

2014.

INTERNATIONAL POLICE ASSOCIATION - SECTION CROATIA

In 2012 nearly 1,100 children got hurt in traffic in Croatia. These terrifying numbers guided us in printing the educational Traffic Coloring Book for children that is free for every interested citizen, as well as children and young people in the community. The earlier the child learns about the dangers of traffic, the lower the risk of an accident.

We co-financed the printing of the coloring book with the amount of HRK 2,487.50 and if we managed to save at least one child's life, we are happy.

2014.
