Love Russia provides accommodation that can take in orphans at the point they leave the orphanage system.
Here they can live without fear of becoming homeless and have regular guidance from a mentor and learn from them the things most learn from parents. Once they have been helped to find work they can live on significantly reduced out-goings until they are ready for complete independence.
When a young person ages out of the Russian orphanage system they are mostly unprepared for life and what it means to be independent.
Some struggle with the most basic of self-care and self-discipline.
With no understanding about how to plan for the future, challenged by complicated forms, lacking in a good education and no parents to guide them, many orphanage leavers will find themselves homeless.
Love Russia collaborates with a mentor who oversees the management and cares for both the home and the young individuals residing within it.
Providing shelter in a transition home to an orphanage leaver opens up many opportunities. This secure environment allow them to develop in many ways including learning to cook, clean and care for themselves - all the things most of us learn from having a family.
With the support of a Love Russia Mentor a transition home is a place where they can prepare for greater independence and stand on their own once they are ready.
Donations towards our emergency home helps maintain and equip it with beds and cookers etc. They also assist the project leader with expenses incurred by running this home as well as subsidising orphans who are not yet able to contribute.
