Kostroma CarePoint provides an opportunity for orphaned teens who have graduated from an orphanage to receive continued support that will promote self-sufficiency. Not only do these drop-in centers provide a sense of safety, protection, and home, but they also offer life-skills training, job readiness programs, and counseling. Other programs include emergency provisions, medical seminars, access to a computer lab, mentorship, sports and recreational activities, art class and movie club. Because of the lack of life skills gained from the orphanages, the majority of orphanage graduates find it difficult to find employment and manage finances. This puts them at a disadvantage as they enter adulthood. The CarePoint provides ongoing help for orphans to improve these skills so that they can thrive as adults. The CarePoint services foster positive behavioral changes that transform lives and assist in putting an end to the devastating orphan-cycle.

Empower a Child at Kostroma CarePoint
Empowering a child is one of the most personal ways that you can make an impact on global poverty. It is more than providing for their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. When you sponsor a child, you build a relationship that shows that child they are valuable, worth loving, and worth investing in.
Your sponsorship is the starting point of a journey that equips vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to create sustainable transformation. When you sponsor a child with HopeChest, you are not just supporting one child — you are helping transform entire communities.

Our continued presence throughout their childhood and into adulthood affords us the opportunities to see the impact all of our visits have made over time.
Start a Fundraiser for Kostroma CarePoint
HopeChest’s approach to alleviating poverty is asset-based, because we believe that in every place on earth there are resources, not only for surviving, but for thriving and succeeding. Local leaders tell us what they do have instead of what they don’t have, and we walk with them to see their vision for their community come to fruition through development projects.
A fundraiser for Kostroma CarePoint is transformational rather than transactional. It promotes empowerment rather than dependence. Your support for these projects will go a long way as, together, we invest in holistic and sustainable solutions that address the root issues of poverty.
