This year 130 kids will be going to school into aSpecial Childa classes specially designed for them. The only way of learning for these children is practically oriented approach to each one.The developmental disorders of the kids we work with do not allow them understand the things reading books. Moreover, for the majority of them the most actual development is sensory development and the formation of practical skills which are needed for future work and home activities.


On the funds raised with the help of the project we will buy materials essential for children to learn and train the skills which will bring them closer to a possibility of independent life.The children will learn to tie shoelaces, use buttons and zippers, use household objects,differentiate colors and shapes and so on. Besides, working with this materials help to develop concentration,holding attention,coordination of movements, teaches to distinguish and compare objects, develops memory.

Long-Term Impact

The main goal of our project is a maximum development of every kidas potential and his or her abilities. Due to permanent trainings and lessons the children develop the most needed skills and learn basics. Children learn how to eat, get dressed, play, use household objects and fulfill their creative potential. All of these gives a child a chance to live outside specialized closed institutions as it usually happens in Russia.
