In honor of the 15th anniversary of the Foundation, we are launching a new charity event in favor of the wards of the foundation on Planeta.Ru. https://planeta.ru/campaigns/diminamechta2021Famous Russian artists who have supported our foundation for many years have created a unique
Collection of Easter eggs “Art for the sake of good”
specially for the birthday of the Diema’s Dream Foundation. These are real works of art, each egg exists only in a single copy! Any participant of the action on Planeta.ru has the opportunity to receive this original gift in gratitude from the organizers of the action.
The “Vital Skills for Children with TMHD” campaign is aimed at supporting the conduct of classes with children with severe developmental disabilities. Thanks to classes on the innovative Portage methodology, another 104 children with severe developmental disabilities (TMHD) will be able to walk, speak, and acquire new vital skills, such as self-care. The action was supported by well-known Russian artists, whose works are in museums and private collections in Russia and foreign countries.
We have other interesting rewards for everyone who supports our project: from funny magnets, the highest quality DVD recording of the SHOW DREAMS concert with Tony Watkins, and much more!
For 15 years, Diema’s Dream Fund has been engaged in activities aimed at improving the quality of life of orphans and children with severe and multiple developmental disabilities (TMND). All projects and programs of the Diema’s Dream Foundation are aimed at providing comprehensive assistance:
– children with severe developmental disabilities, both in boarding schools and living in families;
– children’s and medical institutions for children with TMHR.
Thanks to the support of our benefactors and partners, during this time more than 20,000 orphans and disabled children have received assistance within the framework of the foundation’s charitable programs, 369 courses of treatment and rehabilitation for children with cerebral palsy have been paid for, more than 700 families have received support from the Foundation’s specialists.
In 2006, in the south of Moscow, a Social Habilitation Center for children with TMNR “Diema’s Dream” began to work. Parents with children with developmental disabilities aspired here not only from Moscow, but also from other regions. Here they did not refuse to help children even with the most difficult diagnoses, the most allegedly “unteachable and hopeless”. Over the years of the Center’s work, specialists from the Diema’s Dream Center for Social Habilitation have conducted more than 31,000 consultations and classes for children with severe and multiple developmental disabilities.
Elena Volodina, Director of Diema’s Dream Foundation:
“There are children who need our help, and there are their parents who are desperate to find this help. There are orphans living in orphanages for mentally retarded children, who are still considered “hopeless”, “hopeless”, and even experts do not always understand how to include such children in the learning and socialization process. And if in Moscow the attitude and services rendered to such children have significantly changed for the better, in the regions there is still work to do. Our common goal is to help every special child to discover and realize their potential, to find new opportunities and, at the same time, the joy of life. And to each parent to return faith in himself, his child, to give hope. ”
Since 2013, Diema’s Dream Fund has been doing a great job of training and involving specialists in the regions in the development and development of the innovative Portage methodology for working with children with TMNR in Russia. In 2019-2020, despite the difficult period of the coronavirus pandemic, it was possible to train, inspire and unite the efforts of new teams of specialists in individual work with children with disabilities in 5 regions of Russia.
In 2021, with the support of the Foundation, the “Portage Specialists Association” was created with the aim of ensuring high standards for the provision of social services and the exchange of experience and the development of innovative and effective methods of working with children with severe and multiple developmental disabilities in Russia.
By supporting the charitable action “Vital Skills for Children with TMHD” on Planeta.Ru, from March 19 to May 3, 2021, you will help children with severe developmental disabilities take the first step towards the opportunity to live a full life! Take a step towards good!
