Summary

There are currently 103,000 children living in orphanages in Russia. The tragedy is that 80% of these children have biological parents with terminated rights. 72% of rights-termination cases are related to a critical situation in the family (e.g. death, illness of a family member, loss of a job, housing difficulties, divorce, psychological problems, etc.). Our project helps children to keep and restore the relations with their families.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

A child needs the personal care of an adult. And not only babies need care and assistance, but teenagers do as well. Life in a state institution can only guarantee physical survival for children, but it is not enough. It is a child's right live in family, to know about their ancestors, and to be able to freely communicate with the people who gave them life. Unfortunately, in only the last few years has this understanding taken form in Russia.

How will this project solve this problem?

We examine the children's in the institution personal situation and develop an individual plan of rehabilitation. Our psychologists work with children to help them to accept thier experience and support on their way to positive changes in their lives. We organize meetings for children and parents, preparing both side to this. We assist to parents in restoring parental rights.

Potential Long Term Impact

Social orphans, children in institutions, do not lose contact with their birth parents. This allow them to save or restore attachment, which is crucial for harmonious development. Communication with parents allow children to hold on to their family history (in all its dramatic twists and turns) and to pass it to their children. Reuniting with birth parents has a positive influence on their further family life.
