Project «A street dog» in Donetsk

About the project

In September 2010, a pilot project "Save Family for the Child" was launched.

The main goal of the project is to reduce the number of orphans and children deprived of parental care by 30% by the end of 2014 in Donetsk, through the introduction of the practice of early identification of families with children who found themselves in difficult situations, new technologies to work with families and development of family-based upbringing for those children whose return to the biological family is not possible.

By the City Council decision of February 17, 2012 the City program "Save Family for the Child" was approved, the purpose of the program is to achieve the objectives of the project by working out the model of "Early identification of families”, quality and timely assistance to families with children who get into difficult life circumstances and cannot overcome them on their own.

Rinat Akhmetov's Foundation "Development of Ukraine" has undertook obligations to finance the crisis center "City of the Sun" and the Foundation "Caritas Donetsk" to work with the families and provide services.

Social workers of centers for families and government agencies are continuously trained to work with new techniques and technologies (British, Estonian experience).

Since September 2012, in Donetsk, the following services have started their work and provide social assistance:

  • Mother and child center for women, with children below 1.5 years (prevention of child abandonment, work with mothers who intend to abandon their newborns);
  • Social house for male adolescents – boys, who are in difficult situations, graduates of residential care facilities.

During the project more than 200 social workers and the city of Donetsk region trained European technologies for working with families. Social workers have provided services and assistance to over 2,000 families, where children grow up. The program is working in the following directions:

Working with women having the intention to abandon a baby.

Social and crisis centers professionals do everything possible to help the mother and motivate her to take care of her baby, work with her relatives - family, child’s father, provide psychological, legal, and if necessary – material and social help, teach them cooking, take care of official documents and allowances, provide training in sewing workshop.

Working with families in difficult life situations.

We provide help to families with children, where there is no threat to the child's life (material, medical, legal, sending a child to preschool), prevention of deprivation of parental rights (teaching parenting skills, child care, documentation and child benefits, services of domestic helpers), social assistance, temporary residence of mothers with children who have experienced violence and abuse, as well as single mothers, graduates of boarding schools (Children Homes). Protecting the rights of families (disability, poverty) to raise children in the family.

Working with graduates of Vocational School – adolescent orphans.

Specialists help children to get used to independent living, motivate to choose a profession and get education on it, to look for a job and to acquire communication skills.

An important component of the project is early identification of such a problem in the family.
