URBD Takes Charity Projects to New Level

UrBC, Yekaterinburg, February 8, 2019. The Ural Bank for Reconstruction & Development (UBRD) produced a performance report for 2018 on its Children Believe in Miracles Charity Project, the bank’s press service reports.

The bank complemented re-adjustment group therapy with personal development plan for every single child last year; the plan covers steps to promote self-actualization, job counseling support, and outlook-expanding courses.

Fifteen children and teenagers aged 12-17 from the local social service center took job orientation tests and received personal development plans; many of these children started working on this plan already.

‘When the program was just taking off, our young participants were not sure why we are doing this. But, once events and activities started taking place, they realized this was their chance to try out a possible future job, so dramatic changes started happening. Firstly, they are now doing better at school. Secondly, they’ve become engaged: there are always plenty of questions about where they will be going for an event and who they will be meeting. The children and teenagers are very enthusiastic, and this is the change that really matters to me,’ says the social service center’s deputy director Ekaterina Povarova.
