“League of Dreams” helps to make the life of families with special children adequate and happy. Through therapeutic sports, we help children with disabilities overcome each day with dignity and happiness. We turned complex rehabilitation into a game: we replaced hospital wards with ski slopes and rollerdromes, and medical devices with sports equipment. “The League of Dreams” is a sports rehabilitation and socialization program for people with cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, visual and hearing impairments, and other disabilities. The innovative program operates in 39 regions at 110 sports facilities.

• Year founded: 2012

• Founders: actors Egor Beroev and Kseniya Alferova

• Specialization: Helping people with mental disabilities

"Make people with Down syndrome and other mental disabilities feel at home in any society". This is exactly how the goal of the work of the charitable foundation “I am!” is formulated. Its founders are famous Russian actors Egor Beroev and Ksenia Alferova. About 50 people are involved in the work of the foundation as specialists and volunteers. There are many media personalities among them: friends, colleagues and acquaintances of Ksenia and Egor.
The organization specializes in project activities. For example, it conducts holidays, seminars and outings, during which people with mental disabilities and people “conventionally considered normal” can communicate, make friends and see for themselves that there are not so many differences between them as it might seem at first glance.
The foundation's largest project is called “Amazing home”. Together with the Moscow City Government, the “I am!” foundation arranges assisted living apartments in Moscow for graduates of psycho-neurological boarding schools for children. “Many of them, despite their peculiarities, could live independently, but they do not have the necessary skills for this,” the authors of the project explain.“Going to the shop, using a washing machine, cooking - all this is new to them. Assisted living apartments are a kind of training, after which a person gets a chance to live an independent life”.

• Specilization: support for children left without parental care

Ensure that children from orphanages do not repeat the fate of their parents. This goal is stated by the founders of the “Good Deeds Bureau” charity foundation. Its activities are aimed at helping orphanage graduates to adapt to life after graduation from an orphanage.

For example, the “Successful Future” program helps orphans with goal-setting: the fund's psychologists conduct classes related to understanding their interests, goals in life, help them choose which area is best to get an education in and build a career. The "Give a profession" program gives children from orphanages the opportunity to master one of the working specialties before graduating, thus guaranteeing themselves a stable income in an independent life.

The “Social apartments” fund project allows graduates of orphanages to learn the skills of home self-care: to learn how to plan a budget, manage a household and pay utility bills. “It is hard to imagine that in the 21st century there are those who do not know how to brew tea correctly and use an elevator. But this is exactly the case with children living within the confines of an orphanage. They are used to living with everything already set for them”, the authors of the project explain. Trial accommodation in a social apartment allows orphanage graduates to fill this gap.

The foundation also supports foster parents. Among the projects of the organization there is a video course called “School of easy teenagers”. “Its goal is to acquaint potential foster parents with the psychological features of children who have been in an orphanage for a long time”, the authors of the course explain.

• Specialization: targeted assistance for children with disabilities

The fund's team offers three types of support to its charity recipients. Within the framework of the “PROmovement” program, the fund helps children with disabilities undergo rehabilitation programs in the best medical centres of the country. The second area (called “Moving Together”) involves the purchase of equipment for the rehabilitation of children with disabilities at home. The third type of assistance, the “Bird of Happiness” program, allows children with disabilities to spend quality leisure time. With the support of eager-to-help volunteers, they are able to go to the cinema, the theatre, and cafes.

To accomplish its tasks, the organization actively attracts donations. Also, activists systematically work on social networks: they showcase the details of their work, share the successes and failures of their charity recipients, and also report on spending the funds raised. “In the activities of the foundation, we follow the principles of absolute transparency, we are ready for any checks,” the founders of the “Movement Up” Foundation underscore on their website.

Viktor Kharakidzyan, the head of the legendary “VIA Poyuschie Serdtsa” (Singing Hearts) music band, is the founder and the mind behind the “Adeli Foundation”. Since the founding of the organization, the band has donated a part of its revenues to the work of this foundation.

The “Adeli” team sets itself the task of ensuring that families with a child with cerebral palsy can live a full and high-quality life. Therefore, the foundation begins any cooperation with the family with psychological counselling. The psychologist works primarily with parents so that they, in turn, can better help their special child.

In the stages that follow specialists and volunteers of the foundation provide comprehensive support for families with “special” children: they select rehabilitation programs, teach training methods at home, organize leisure activities, help the children to get an education, collect money for medical operations and necessary equipment.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the “Adeli” Charity Foundation summed up its work in numbers. It turned out that during this time the fund had helped 5796 “special” families, having collected 478 705 401 rubles for this purpose.

Treatment of a child with cancer is a long and difficult path both for the child and their parents. The Specialists of the “Nasten'ka” Charity Foundation work towards helping the family go through this path without loss. The organization identifies two key directions in its activities.

The first is called “Helping the Family.” As part of this program, the charitable foundation pays for the costs of diagnostics, the purchase of medication, commute to the place of treatment, as well as other expenses that parents of a sick child face. Since its inception, the foundation has helped more than 5,000 families in this area.

The second direction - "Helping the hospital" – is about providing assistance to the work of oncological institutions. “Nasten'ka” Charitable Foundation can cover the repair expenses of hospital premises or equipment that has gone out of service, can purchase new equipment for the hospital, or can organize training for staff to learn new methods of work.
