welcome to our website
ThePromise works to improve the lives of disabled children in Russia by promoting a system of support (Portage) for disabled children in partnership with families and carers and by encouraging a more positive attitude to disability.
Our pioneering work focuses on training and supporting teams of Portage workers in two orphanages in the Ryazan region of Russia and one in the community working with families with disabled children in their own homes in Ryazan city.
Portage is a system of one to one early childhood education used successfully with disabled children in many parts of the world. The success of this model of early intervention in Ryazan has been breathtaking.
#givingtuesday raised over £2,500
The campaign is still running and we are always very grateful to receive donations – it’s not too late!
This money will go straight to supporting and training new Portage Teams to bring the gift of Portage, and with it hope, to many children and their families so thank you so much once again from us all.
