Who we are
The Charity Foundation «Big Change» was founded in 2002 by a group of teachers united by a common dream – to help orphanage “graduates” realize their potential and enable them to live life to the fullest.
Why we do this
Lack of support from friends and relatives, low educational level and weak independent living skills prevent many orphanage “graduates” from successfully integrating into society, finding a decent job, creating a family, and sometimes merely surviving.
Whom we help
We help orphanage graduates and children adopted by patronage families.
What we do
We help orphanage graduates to acquire independent living skills, receive an education, find a job and extend their range of interests. In addition, we help specialists and volunteers who work with orphans to find effective ways they can support these children. We also help children who have been adopted by patronage families.
Results and success stories
For the past 13 years we have helped more than 400 pupils. Many of these have entered colleges and universities, have been able to find meaningful employment, and most importantly, they have learned to look at their future in a more positive way.
