UBRD Launches New Children’s Charity Project

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, October 5, 2018. The Ural Bank for Reconstruction & Development (UBRD) is now launching its new charity project within a larger-scale Children Believe in Miracles Program; the new project provides a social worker/curator for every child living in a foster home/orphanage to help them with mastering professional skills, the bank’s press service reports.

The goal is to help children in foster care do a try-out for their dream job with the help of a curator who already has the required qualifications and can share their personal success story, guide a child through their first professional steps, and advise them on what school to go to and what textbooks to read.

‘We’ve been cooperating with foster homes and orphanages for decades now, and for many years, we have been offering more than just financial aid. Our Children Believe in Miracles Program aims to help the children adjust to grownup life. This new project focuses on very specific, highly personalized interaction with every child to help them with their career decisions in the way a parent would: it is exactly this that most of the children and their tutors asked for when surveyed last year. This is how the idea of curatorship in the job counseling and mentoring field took root,’ says UBRD PR Director Elena Yurina.
