Exhibition “Photographers for Protecting Children”

On June 10-17 we held the city art exhibition “Photographers for Protecting Children”. It was held together with Saint-Petersburg NGO “Stellit” which works for prevention of sexual exploitation of children. Their part of the exhibition (photoes, videos, audio recordings) was devoted to raising public awareness about child sexual exploitation. Photos presented by F2C showed positive ways of interacting with children, how to care for and love children. In order to show the child abuse problem we also presented drawings of children – victims of abuse.

Youth Exchange Forum in the framework of Empowering Marginalised Children in the RF

On April 23-25 we organised and carried out the Youth Exchange Forum in the framework of Empowering Marginalised Children in the RF. The event took place in Ekaterinburg. The Forum united several children groups: disabled children and children on probation from Ekaterinburg, candidates to foster families for future care leavers in conflict with the law and a young man released from the colony for minors from Orel, children living in children’s homes from Saint-Petersburg. The care leavers working for Core Assets, the largest Foster Care Agency in Great Britain, came to Russia to share their experience and inspire our children to overcome their difficult life situations and help other vulnerable children.

Volunteers have organized master-class for care leavers

In January we made a plan of work with care leavers involving our volunteers. The plan is aimed at raising self-esteem of care leavers, to teach them to present themselves, to ask for support from adults, to communicate, to get to know more about different professions.

Directors of children's homes were trained on prevention of child abuse

On the 25-27th of February 2013 we conducted training for directors and social pedagogues on prevention of child abuse in Children’s Homes. The training was supported by the Ministry of Education and Child Ombudsman. The Ministry of Education wanted a specialist from each Children Home to participate in our trainings so that after that they could disseminate their knowledge to other co-workers.
Is there any chance in Russia for charity?
Yes, there is.
Don't know
No, there isn't
What charity? There is nothing to eat for ourselves.
