Turgeneva iela 15, Riga
Missions and objectives
For many years now we have been cheering others with the slogan- Joy multiplies joy!
The Creative association for youth „TREPES” has been established as an interest group in Latvia in 1998 and in April 2001 established as a non-governmental
organization in Latvia, Aizkraukle. In 2008 „TREPES” re-established activity in Riga and was approved by the Ministry of Finance of The Republic of Latvia to gain status of a public benefit organization for the improvement of culture and welfare of low-income and vulnerable social groups.
We have active volunteers between 15-25 year old and youth support persons from age 26. Our members actively involve friends, relatives, peers and well known people in society in voluntary work.
The Organization has a co-operation agreement with the Welfare Ministry of Latvia, Riga City Council departments of Welfare, and Education, Culture and Sports.
“TREPES” is also a member of the Riga City Councils Advisory Council on issues of social integration.
We have a successful long lasting co-operation with the Infectology centre of Latvia.
“TREPES” is a member of TB Europe coalition.
We also co-operate with many municipalities in Latvia.
