“A Future with Confidence” Project Receives “Best Social Projects in Russia” Award

19 April 2016

The Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation’s “A Future with Confidence” project was given the award for one of the “Best Social Projects in Russia” at the 4th Annual Programme of the Social Projects Foundation in the category for “Projects in Support of Socially Vulnerable Sections of the Population”.

The “Best Social Projects in Russia” Award is an annual event that was created in 2009 in support of the Russian Government’s efforts to strengthen social policy promoting partnership between the state, the private sector and the general public. The event recognises the best projects in corporate social responsibility, charity and patronage.

In 2016 there were over 200 projects nominated, 70 of which received awards.

The official award ceremony for the best social projects and practices in Russia took place on 8 April, 2016 at a hotel in the Moscow suburbs. The event programme began with a forum on the urgent issues of developing social entrepreneurship in Russia.

“A Future with Confidence” was launched by the Art, Science and Sport Charity Foundation in 2013 in order to help the social adjustment of teenagers who have found themselves in difficult life situations. The main objective of the project is to provide pupils of children’s homes, residential schools, and special schools, as well as home-schooled children with disabilities an opportunity to acquire knowledge and skills necessary for a confident entry into adulthood. The project works in two areas: online master classes and lectures (webinars) at www.tomyfuture.ru and off-line in-person meetings, at which children can get to know their teachers and mentors who are all experts in various fields.
