"Room to Read"
We envision a world in which all children can pursue a quality education that enables them to reach their full potential and contribute to their communities and the world.
Room to Read seeks to transform the lives of millions of children in low-income countries by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Working in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations and governments, we develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the relevant life skills to succeed in school and beyond.
Nochlezhka was founded in St. Petersburg in 1990. It feeds the homeless, keeps them warm, helps them sort out their papers, find a job, register as disabled, get accepted at care homes, find relatives and return home, challenge fraudulent transactions at court, and defends the rights of the homeless and people with no official registration.
We are a non-profit, non-governmental organisation, so we look for sponsors, grants, subsidies and organise charity campaigns and collections to raise money to run our projects. Nochlezhka is the 25 employees, the hundreds of volunteers and the thousands of people whom we have managed to help.
"We Need Help"
"We need help" is a charity fund to support and develop charitable, social and socially significant initiatives in Russia. The main direction of the Foundation's activities is the development of the charitable sector in Russia, as well as raising its professionalization level.
The Foundation collects donations for other non-commercial organizations (NGOs), including charitable foundations, in fact being a "fund of funds", that is, an organization that helps to work for other organizations.
