Orphanage graduate – Oksana Borzenkova Olympic champion of the Special Olympic Games in Abu Dhabi – 2019. Our congratulations!!!!
In some media it is repeatedly alleged that bad conditions prevail in Russia’s children’s homes and social institutions. We want to know for ourselves and visit a large children’s home in St. Petersburg. We chose it ourselves. We are a group of teachers, teachers for special education and a social pedagogue from Switzerland and Germany.
A dance to Russian music, perfect choreography with well-known Russian dance elements as well as great acrobatic interludes, performed by children in colourful costumes tailored according to Russian tradition – this is how we are welcomed in the Children’s Home No 1 in St. Petersburg.1 The children perfectly master the choreography, they dance joyfully and with beaming eyes, they proudly laugh at us. The special thing about it: The children are mentally handicapped, most of them are affected by Down syndrome.
This demonstration is an example of the spirit prevailing in this children’s home: All children and young people are disabled, but all are proud of what they can do, of the fact that they are an important part of this community and make their contribution to it.
There are children with severe multiple disabilities who can hardly move themselves, who have sensory impairments, who are severely mentally handicapped and severely limited in their ability to communicate, up to children with slight learning disabilities and young adults. All of them are supported according to their abilities, everyone is enabled to participate as much as possible in social life.
About 200 children and 100 young adults are living in Children’s Home No 1. We drive towards a large bright complex in Peterhof, divided by many windows. This is a place one hour away from St. Petersburg, where the tsars had their summer residence. In St. Petersburg everything is still icy in April, the outdoor facilities are therefore not animated, nevertheless we notice gardens, greenhouses and sports fields on the way to the home’s entrance
30 cadets of police officers from the University of M.I.A (Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation) visited an orphanage and presented a New Year show based on Russian fairy tales for two hundred children. Police psychologists have prepared a adaption of a fairy talefor our children, musical accompaniment, dancing and round dances during a fairy tale. Children were not only spectators, but also took part in a fairy tale. After the New Year show, the children received gifts from the cadets.
