welcome to our website
ThePromise works to improve the lives of disabled children in Russia and neighbouring countries by promoting a system of support called 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 workerswho are primarily based in the community supporting families with disabled children in their own homes.
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 Russia has been breathtaking.
