Our Main Projects

The main projects of the "Right of the Child” (ROC)
Projects of the last 5 years.
(July 2013)

Life of the organization for small grants - it is always a sort of survival with giant investment of time and efforts on the application and the reporting procedures, uncertain future and annoying debts for the rent of the office. Nevertheless, we actively worked during 17 years and are grateful to all foundations that supported us (the List of these foundations one can see in the Chapter “About us” of the ROC’s old web-site). And we are especially grateful to the French NGO "ACER-RUSSIE" and the American NGO "Kidsave International" whose cooperation with ROC was long-term.

With the support of  "ACER-RUSSIE" charity projects were implemented during 13 years (2000-2013) - see in more detail in Russian: Chapter "The humanitarian program 'Help the Children of Russia'"

Cooperation with the Kidsave International lasted for 9 years (2000-2008), and has been committed at the implementation in Russia of the main objective of this organization which is also of extreme importance for Russia - deinstitutionalization of senior inmates of boarding schools, providing for them the loving family environment. For children of 8 years and older the task is not an easy one, requiring specific approaches that allow to form in adults (ordinary citizens - potential host parents) the strong sense of psychological attachment to the child. Here the main tool are the programs “Vacation in the Family” which ROC - at the initiative and with the support of "Kidsave International" - realized early in Novgorod region and then on a larger scale in Smolensk region. More details on these activities see in Russian: web-site chapter “Program ‘The Right of the Child to the Family’”

The financial crisis which broke out in the USA in the Fall of 2008 hit the "Kidsave International" as well. It was forced to cut most of its programs in Russia.

In subsequent years ROC has survived mainly due to four grants of the President of the Russian Federation - these projects were performed in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2012, and also thanks to our partner participation in the 30-month (2010-2012) EU supported project entitled ‘Positive Childhood’ – see in the List below.

Currently (in 2013) ROC does not have supporting grants – for the first time in 17 years of our work. And we vastly need the support to continue our plural work.
