The times of economic and social crises in Serbia have imposed the need to strengthen compassion and solidarity with growing groups of vulnerable citizens, and above all with the most vulnerable of all - children.
In accordance with its basic program goal to protect and promote children's rights, in compliance with its mission to advocate for a happier and richer childhood of each child as the foundation of his/her better future, the Friends of Children of Serbia decided to encourage and emphasize the tradition of charity. That is why the Dandelion Recognition was established in 2010 as a sign of gratitude to individuals who, with their work, material and immaterial contributions, humanity and altruism, make this world more beautiful and benevolent for children.
For the name of the Charter, the name of a modest, but widespread flower was chosen, which is useful in many ways - as a medicine, food, decoration.
The winner of the Award is decided every year by the Board of Directors of the Organization.
Even today, Branka tirelessly visits homes for children without parental care, children with disabilities, and pensioners in homes for the elderly.
