"We have to use all of our potential to create the conditions for life and work for our children and young people because, I believe, we are all aware of the fact that young people are our future. That is why our Ministry is striving for young people, especially those who go out of their homes for children and foster families, to support and congratulate on their persistence and desire to fight further. We live in times of great challenges and their step into the future gives everyone hope for better tomorrow, because in the young world the world remains. Stay on to others, keep on preserving all the values ​​that make you happy - diligence, culture, persistence, and faith in your own strength, "she told Nada Murganić, Minister of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy.

Thanks to all the participants who contributed with their donations, scholarships for this academic year (2016./2017.) Were received even by 19 students. This makes them much easier to start their educational path, but also offers opportunities for planning the future.

"The new 19 scholarship is extremely welcome, a sign that" Step into Life "has its image and recognition. We are grateful to the support of all the long-time partners who have been with us since the beginning, but also to all who supported the action in the last edition and showed all the good will, especially in this difficult economic situation. The first generation of our scholarships are now faculty educators and I'm sure the same great future for this year's scholarship is also waiting. Our wish is to internationalize the project and find a model for our first employment of our scholarships, "said Darko Radišić, president of Rotary club Zagreb Kaptol, organizer of the action.
