Presence

Below is a simple map that shows where ROOF currently works:

Although ROOF was founded in Moscow, most of our current efforts are in the Pskov Oblast, in the northwest of Russia. The western-most project is with an orphanage in Bobrovo, that is literally 300 meters from the Russian border with the little Baltic country of Estonia.

Much of ROOF’s work in recent years has been based out of our volunteer house in Baranovo, near the orphanage in Belskoye Ustye. We also continue to run our Abilitation Center Program for graduates, in Porkhov and Baranovo.

In autumn 2016, we opened a Post-Orphanage Club in Pskov, and expect this may grow in a similar way to the Moscow Post-Orphanage Education Center founded by ROOF in 2000.
