Big Change Charity Foundation

The mission is to help orphans in getting decent education which they were deprived in orphanages; to help them achieve their life and professional goals; to help them adapt socially.

Help Russian orphans get education & socialize
 
There are over 650,000 orphans in Russia. The majority of orphanage graduates is unable to successfully integrate into society. For 13 years "Big Change" helps young people from orphanages who have the most difficulties after graduating the system to settle well in life, to find a job, a home, a family. We have done this by developing motivation to learn and skills essential for independent living, helping them get better education and expanding the range of their interests. project reportread updates from the field
Help people from mental homes start to live worthy
 
Orphanage graduates in Russia who were recognized unable to live independently by the age of 18 are moved to mental houses where they usually stay for the rest of their lives. Almost all their life they spend on the territory of the mental houses and as a result they are in fact excluded from the society. Among these young people there are those who with special support and guidance can start to live ordinary life - live independently, study, get a job, have friends and communicate with people. project reportread updates from the field
