Our Vision
We believe in a world in which children without guardianship can constructively realize themselves in the wide world.
Our Mission
We help orphans in the Akmola oblast to develop basic social adaptation skills.
Our Approach
For social skills and abilities to become a way of life, varied and long-term work with these children is needed. Hence our approach - assistance should be systemic and long-term.
Which systematic challenges and problems do these children face, especially after leaving orphanages?
1
All their experiences, ways of thinking, behavioral strategies were formed in a closed community. This community has its own values and rules. On leaving the orphanage, the children must learn how to live again.



2
Society often avoids and spurns them. The children accept this stigmatization and could begin to intentionally break the law.
3
Living in an orphanage does not reinforce the vital skill of making your own decisions. Many children develop a strategy of avoiding responsibility.
The social security of children without guardianship is an indicator of the normal temperature of society, this is the degree of our humanity. The social adaptation these children, namely, their readiness for independent living, is part of society's care for itself. It is supported by the state and regulated by many legal institutions - the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Constitution, the Family and Civil Codes. But the statistics show that this is not enough.
Why NGOs (non-government organizations) can and should help improve the situation?
Government institutions are slower to respond to change. Reforms in this area are quite recent and their effectiveness has not yet been proven. NGOs are more flexible in this regard. It is easier for us to change the methods of our work and it is easier to respond to specific situations. As a result, there will always be areas where we will be more effective than any government program. We approach the problem much closer at hand.

These children are primarily rejected by society. And they perceive it as an insurmountable wall. It is logical that we, society, and take apart this wall brick by brick. And here it is important that proactive and conscious volunteers should be at the forefront of change.

Most specialists from the state guardianship system come to professional indifference and eventually begin to treat children as "work". Volunteers act more "from the heart", from deep values. Therefore, it is easier for them to maintain a sense of empathy towards the kids, which, in turn, gives rise to the children's trust and desire to cooperate.
Why do we choose this category and way of social adaptation?
We understand that a large number of children and adolescents in Kazakhstan need support, however, recognizing the limited resources, we decided to prioritize. Orphans do not have close adults who could help them adapt to an independent life. When a child grows up in a family, one way or another, he has someone to turn to with minimal requests.
Why not a way to support adoption and custody, but social adaptation?
We completely agree that adoption is key to the social adaptation of orphans, however statistics show that every year there is a certain number of young people who leave orphanages and retain their status (that is, during their stay in they were not adopted at the orphanage, they were not taken into custody, their parents were not restored in their rights, etc.), so we chose to help them. We very much hope that government reforms will resolve this issue and modernize the adoption system so that children will not be left without guardianship. However, by this time, while reforms are underway, children are leaving orphanages and they need support here and now.
TO WORK UPON THE SITUATION AND IMPROVE IT FOR CHILDREN, WE WORK IN THREE RELATED DIRECTIONS:
1
Together with experts, we create and implement developing programs and projects for the socialization of children without guardianship
2
We work with "close adults" for children to apply the skills they have learned in a safe environment.
3
We arrange high-quality communications to increase the literacy and awareness of society in relation to significant social problems, social projects, and volunteering.
