OZANADAILY CENTER FOR REHABILITATION AND WORK ACTIVITIES (OZANA CENTER)

It was founded in 2002. Association “OZANA” is the founder of the Center.

We currently take care of 49 beneficiaries, and the program is implemented by professional workers (6 in direct work) in a suitably arranged and equipped space.

Program for youth
and adults
with intellectual disabilites

The program combines rehabilitation and therapeutic activities with contents of a social character, and the starting point in choosing the content and creating the daily rhythm and dynamics of work, is based on individual specifics of beneficiaries, and is in line with the course of the year, i.e. festivities and holidays.

Rehabilitation and therapeutic activities develop motor skills, creative expression, independence and self – confidence, reduce the negative effects of the symptoms of impairment, and develop social competencies in beneficiaries, and are achieved through:

HANDMADE
WORKSHOP
The workshop includes the following contents: making handmade dolls, tailoring and sewing children's toys, knitting and crocheting, embroidery and weaving, sewing and embroidery of useful and decorative items
MACHINE SEWING
WORKSHOP
In the workshop decorative items and useful items (aprons, bags, tablecloths,…) are sewn. The workshop also includes sewing assortment for children (toys, pillows…)
In the workshop, wool goes through combing, dyeing, felting, and in the end it is used to make decorative and useful items. Wool is saved from being thrown into the environment, and our beneficiaries thus develop fine motor skills, patience and interaction with each other.
DRAMA GAMES

The workshop of drama games and exercises includes regular workshops, as well as setting up performances related to the celebrations of festivities and other events.
We do shaping in clay, grinding, baking, painting and glazing.
