The beginning of cooperation between SK-NIC and the Internet counseling center for young IPcko dates back to December 2019. At that time, IPcko’s project became part of the 11 winning projects, supported from the first call of the SK-NIC Fund.
Time has passed since then and we are happy to see how IPcko manages to develop its thoughts and to help people in crisis situations. We follow it and continue to support it.
Due to the pandemic, 2021 is as challenging as was 2020. It is even challenging for people who have safe and stable relationships, health or financial background. But there are many who do not have such ideal conditions for their existence and are often at the end of their psychic powers.
It is for them where IPcko stands – a counseling center that helps online, by phone and also in person, if circumstances allow it.
During the first half of 2021, almost 37,000 people turned to them! It’s a high number, significantly higher than the one in the past, but a growing team of experts has been able to help all of them!
As the director of IPcko, Mrs. G. Zúbriková, wrote to us:
„Staying with vulnerable people in a crisis situation is not easy. It requires constant training, education, resilience and many other things. For the fact that we can train experts who then help that many people, whether within the Crisis Helpline, via Internet counseling center IPcko.sk, through the Dobra linka or in one of our other crisis or field teams, or in the contact centers Kacko and Machovisko, we are grateful to all our donors, partners and our friends and supporters.”
We are honored that SK-NIC contributes to the improvement of the world in which we live by supporting projects like this one! Both in a real and virtual way!
