Children and young people with diabetes are usually at risk of social exclusion, they don't have the necessary support and understanding from the others. Due to lack of information their peers, teachers, neighbors and friends often don't understand them, reject them, avoid them, even offend them. Young people with diabetes begin avoid social contacts, refuse many opportunities for social and professional development, some don't continue their education.

If the center for support and integration of children and young people with diabetes in Sofia be created, the young people with diabetes will learn to be more courageous in expressing and asserting their opinions to their peers, parents, teachers, employers. They will learn to share and to looking for help. Their peers will be more empathy, will learn more about diabetes and how to provide assistance and support in critical situations. In Sofia will be create a very attractive place - friendly place for children and young people with diabetes and for all who want to be part of a sunny and smiling youth community.
