The main directions of the fund's work

Preparing graduates of orphanages for an independent life
Preparing graduates of orphanages for an independent life involves:
1) raising awareness on health issues;
2) development of leadership skills and pro-active attitude;
3) improving self-esteem and developing emotional intelligence;
4) expanding social connections with peers and competent adults;
5) increasing competitive advantages in the labor market;
6) improving financial literacy.
Since 2013 we have been implementing a gender-specific program “A Solid Step to One’s Adult Life” aimed at preparing graduates of orphanages who study in vocational schools and colleges in St. Petersburg for an independent life.
Support and development of the Youth Volunteer Movement “You know the right way? Have it your own way"
Our volunteer work program includes two main blocks:
• Socializing and educational events for volunteers: trainings, creative studios, film lectures (watching and discussing films), joint celebrations, camping trips, etc.
• Various activities conducted by volunteers that promote a healthy lifestyle, prevent risky behavior and support children from deprived backgrounds: thematic games, performances, exhibitions, etc.
We pay key attention to the dissemination of our experience in toolkits, at thematic conferences, seminars, round tables and other educational events for specialists.
