St Gregory's Foundation

Objectives

St Gregory's Foundation works in Russia and the former Soviet Union to tackle the social problems facing children, teenagers, parents and carers. Our projects address the root causes of disadvantage by putting families before institutions, strengthening a sense of responsibility in young and old alike and providing opportunities for vulnerable people to fulfil their potential. Our work makes our beneficiaries active participants in improving their own lives and encourages a more charitable society.
