Volunteers' support



93 children with disabilities live in the orphanage n.4 in Pavlovsk, St Petersburg. Everyday only one tutor and one nurse take care of a group of 10 kids. 'Shag navstrechu' every year invites 10 volunteers, who help staff to look after children day-by-day and teach them self-service skills. Program "Volunteers' support" was created 10 years ago and is maintained only on money raised. These donations allow to pay compensation to volunteers, who devote their love and attention to orphans.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Fosterlings of the orphanage have both mental and physical disabilities - for them each ordinary activity is a huge achievement. Unfortunately, staff shortage does not allow orphanage to pay attention to every child. That is why children feel abandoned, do not get along with each other, practically spending all day on their own.

How will this project solve this problem?

All money raised will go on compensation for volunteers', who work with children, teaching them, playing with them, taking to walks, museums, theatres etc. With the constant care of volunteers children become more sociable and active, start walking and speaking. And the most important thing - they open a whole new world outside the orphanage.

Potential Long Term Impact

All skills gained with volunteers will help orphans in adult life in psycho neurological dispensary. Thanks to our volunteers children have a chance to find alternate accommodation with better living conditions or even a loving family.
