What We Do

We assist orphans in acquiring learning skills and social skills. We encourage personal development and encourage our students to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.

Educational Center

The Big Change Educational Center in Moscow focuses on social rehabilitation and social integration of Russian orphans. Educational Program is designed to assist young people in adjusting to the life in the outside world, help them successfully integrate into society, and learn the skills of setting and achieving personal goals. Our students are the children living in orphanages and orphanage graduates; they are of different age, background and educational levels. We develop individual educational plans for each student based on their personal goals, skills, and circumstances.
