Meet Sandra

Sandra Špoljarić is a staff member of JRS Croatia working in a child-friendly space

Why do you think the work of JRS is relevant today?

The focus of all discussions is person-centred, as in to a human being, focusing on his inalienable human dignity. This focus leads to the transcendental search for the truth. That is why the mission of JRS is relevant in society.

How does your work/activity contribute to JRS mission?

Refugee children are the most vulnerable group. Working with them, I had the unique opportunity to look at the potential of each individual. Through my international and multicultural educational experience, I have acquired various skills and knowledge that I have applied to real situations through practice related to education, creativity and children’s rights. In such a perspective, I am able to contribute to the mission of JRS: accompany, serve, advocate.

What does JRS mean to you?

JRS provides the greatest opportunity for all of us to make a difference. It encourages me to promote the good of every person. So, JRS means to me “bonum commune”.
