Charity foundation “Dobrodii Club” helps orphaned children and families in difficult life circumstances since 2011.
We give a fishing rod and not the fish
The main focus of Dobrodiy club activities is education. Our team delivers educational projects and motivates the children to be curious and broaden their mindset.
We promote the idea of non-pitying because orphaned children need knowledge and opportunities and not sympathy.
We are rooting for systematic charity!
One of the vectors of our activity is mentorship. Every child needs a significant adult who will believe in their success and support them. Our volunteers may become such an adult for the children – they communicate with them regularly, transfer their values, and show them a positive experience in relationships.
Creating a community of like-minded people
Dobrodii Club is a community of responsible, conscientious people who are united by one big idea. We all believe that every child deserves a chance to be successful. Every volunteer (Dobrodiy) is a strong personality, but together we are stronger. There is something beyond the idea that is keeping us all together – values that define our actions and drive us towards one goal. Become a part of our community!
● Visiting orphanages in Kyiv region: you can visit the orphanage where there are many children, and then choose one to becomes their mentor. You can become a volunteer driver and drive volunteers to children, or bring children to a location in Kyiv, as we periodically organize various activities for them in the city.
● Pro Bono volunteers (professional help - a person helps with activities that they do professionally). We are always looking for talented people - copywriters, designers, photographers, videographers - who are ready to use their talent to strengthen our impact on the lives of orphaned children and children in difficult life circumstances.
● Material help: if someone can't allocate time, but really wants to be useful they can donate the material resources.
There are a lot of options. We are sure that you will find the one that suits you best, become part of the community of volunteers, and change the world for the better together with us.
