A Family for a Child project
Implementation years: 2011-2015
In May 2011, the Rinat Akhmetov Foundation joined efforts with Dnipropetrovsk Oblast State Administration to start a systemic work on reducing the number of orphans and children deprived of parental care at boarding institutions of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.
Under this project, the Foundation established two centers for prevention of social orphanhood – the Center for Families in Difficult Life Circumstances and the Mother and Child Center – and promoted efforts aimed to adopt and place children into family-type raising conditions.
The Foundation taught foster and adoptive parents all nuances of adoption, improved qualification of social workers, developed a strategy of reforming boarding institutions in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast in the partnership with international organizations.
The Foundation helped establish 27 family-type children’s homes in the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast.
