The Joan Rowling Foundation will help reform the Yekaterinburg boarding school

In the notorious Yekaterinburg boarding school for children with developmental disabilities on Lyapustina Street, the project "Invisible Children" began, designed to find families for the inmates of the institution. According to Znak.com, the non-profit organization Family for Children is responsible for it with the assistance of KAF and Lumos charitable foundations, the founder of which is writer Joan Rowling.

The “Invisible Children” program, designed for two years, turns children's homes into centers for promoting family education. The reform is carried out as part of a government decree of 2014. According to him, from now on, the main function of orphanages is to find a family for an orphan, to provide assistance to foster parents at the first stages, and also to create conditions for orphans of the orphanage as close as possible to family conditions.

The Family to Children organization won a grant from the KAF Foundation for 1.2 million rubles. With these funds, specialists will teach boarding staff to work with potential adoptive parents and blood relatives of the children, as well as conduct psychological trainings for the boarding staff so that they can avoid burnout and respond correctly to difficult cases in their work. In addition, the program involves the organization of support services for adoptive parents raising children with special needs.


The boarding school on Lyapustina Street received scandalous fame in 2014 after a series of accidents with his pupils. First, the children talked about the torture by the employees of the orphanage, after which they dismissed its director, and also deprived of liberty one of the employees and the orderly of the orphanage. Later, a 5-year-old boy fell out of the institution’s window, an 8-year-old girl drowned while bathing and a number of injuries to children occurred. At the same time, employees of the orphanage claim that the incidents are associated with inhumanly low funding and lack of staff. These words are partly confirmed by recent Znak.com material.
