be dragons

Changemaker: Anna Safronova

Country of Implementation: Russia


We are a grassroots volunteer project that started in Russia in 2011 as an art workshop for

children living in orphanages. Over the years it grew into a holistic support program that

helps children living without parental care reach their full potential and successfully

transition into adulthood.

Just like dragons are considered to be mythical creatures, in many countries orphaned

children are invisible. They live in government institutions isolated from the society, in the

blind spot, with no support needed to reach their full potential. We want to change that! Let

the dragons spread their wings and make their dreams a reality.

Our volunteers and supporters have run activities in orphanages and foster care facilities in

22 cities in 9 different countries. We welcome all kinds of initiatives that help to disrupt

neglect and isolation and create a nurturing environment in which children develop and

thrive.
