 – We have continuous “Make-over”-projects, where people can sponsor the make-over or maintenance of a room in a house.

We started a project a year ago to upgrade all the rooms by using standard colour paint and replacing carpets in rooms with a standard tile. High quality products are used that gives all our rooms a fresh new look that will last.


-There is also a “Sponsor a resident”-project, where a contribution can be made to help cover the fees for the monthly fees for a resident.

Most of our residents have no other income than disability grant and a small amount that the State contributes towards their stay in YANA. These two amounts together, however, only cover 64% of a resident’s expenses. The other 36% must be covered by external parties, mostly parents. As there has been no subsidy increase since 2009 (currently three years running), the contribution to be made by the parents of residents are increasing by the year. It is becoming more and more difficult for a lot of people to cover these expenses. By getting involved in the “sponsor a resident-“ project, an individual or organisation can contribute an amount of their choice to help a specific resident to cover their monthly expenses for a time as specified.

  • Make a donation towards a specific project.
    For instance, the one to build and equip an industrial-type kitchen as our current facility is inadequate.
