The Association brings together 20-25 members, that carries out a series of activities, throughout the year, related to children:

In February, the Association organized the Children’s Carnival in collaboration with the Tourist Association of Kumrovec County, where the cash prizes are awarded to the best masks, commemorative award to kindergarten “Primrose”, and all masks get free donuts and chocolate that the Association provides on its own or in collaboration with sponsors.
