You are one of nearly 600,000 orphans living in Russia. Imagine that you are one of the nearly 15,000 kids between the ages of 16-18 who will be graduating or aging out of the orphanage system in just a couple of months. Imagine being given approximately $30 to live on when you leave the orphanage without having been taught basic life skills. What does your future hold? According to statistics, within one to five years:

  • 3,000 engage in criminal activities and are in prison.
  • 5,000 are unemployed.
  • 6,000 are homeless.
  • 1,500 commit suicide.
  • 600 are admitted to universities.
  • 50-60% girls are forced in to prostitution.
  • 30-40% are addicted to drugs or alcohol.
  • 4% attend a university.

Imagine facing such a hopeless future!

Won't you help us in our endeavor to offer hope and a brighter future to these orphans?

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. - James 1:27
