On August 19, the Estonian Association of Large Families (ELPL) celebrated its 25th anniversary with network members, supporters and partners. 25 years of joint efforts have grown ELPL into an all-Estonian umbrella organization consisting of 19 member organizations and thousands of families all over Estonia.
ELPL works to guarantee the general well-being of children and families, and to ensure that all children and families have enough support measures and that they go hand in hand with time. We are very honored to say that for 25 years, the Estonian Association of Large Families has stood up for Estonian large families to grow up in a respectful space, so that families retain the sense of security needed to raise children.
For the jubilee event, the Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas (father of 4 children) and the Minister of Social Security Signe Riisalo sent their warm wishes through video (available in Estonian).
