IMG_0001 RUSSIA. Western Siberia. Slavjanka. 2015. Adolescents standing in front of the Caritas Child Center “Hope”. Children and teens tend to attend several courses such as Russian language, behavior, ethic, cooking and theatre.
Slavjanka is a small village about 160 km south of Omsk, in the county of Novowarschavka, near to the border with Kazakhstan. Half of adults have no jobs and have low paying casual jobs. The alcohol consumption grows with the lack of any prospects. Almost every family is touched with alcoholism. The adults and children feel completely out of place and have difficulties integrating. Some children need psychological support to deal with family problems such as poverty, domestic violence and alcohol.
