Children of St. Petersburg implement projects of socio-cultural adaptation of children of migrants and refugees since April 2012. We started with courses of the Russian language, and this project remained the most important, because without knowledge of the language, adaptation is impossible.

Most of our students come from Central Asia – from Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, there are also children from Armenia, Azerbaijan, China, Syria, Afghanistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Moldova, Colombia, Cameroon, Tanzania, etc.

We want children to learn and feel comfortable in their new city, speak Russian fluently, find new friends, develop their potential.

All classes and activities are free and open to children of any nationality and citizenship.

  • Cultural program: 1-2 times a month we attend museums, theaters and also participate in social events, e.g., in festivals.

  • In-city camps for children. We hold city language camps for our students. During the spring, autumn and winter holidays – a week, about 50 children participate, during the summer – a month, about 120 children participate. The program includes, in addition to Russian language lessons, sports and art classes, theater workshops and much more.

  • Youth center. The center has exams preparation courses, trainings on communication, vocational guidance, first aid and more. Besides, there is also a space for free communication, drinking tea and listening to music.

  • Consulting parents on migrational, social and other questions. If needed, we redirect to other organisations.


Our separate project is the “Gul” newspaper for women from Central Asia. This is a newsletter published monthly in four languages – Russian, Tajik, Uzbek and Kyrgyz. The team of the newspaper consists of girls and women from Central Asia, to whom such work allows to try themselves in something new and acquire useful skills. In the newspaper, we give information on how to defend your rights, and discuss topics related to parenting and leisure activities.
