In 2014 Mogilev region to open three family type orphanages

In 2014 Mogilev region will open three family type orphanages. The information is provided by the Education office of Mogilev regional authorities. Two family type orphanages will be constructed in Mogilev and Shklov within the state investment program. One more family type orphanage will be constructed in Bykhov at the expense of Belarusbank funds. Comfortable cottages will welcome parents brining up 8-10 children. The families will be defined through competitive selection.

According to the regional education office, Belarus has actively been constructing family type orphanages for last 10 years. It makes two new houses a year. Family type orphanages unite professional parent-teachers (mothers and fathers) and children. The most important fact about family type orphanages is that children live in family atmosphere. It allows them to absorb the kind of relations typical for families.

In 2005 there were only 18 family type orphanages. Today the number totals 40. And the region is a leader in this area. Over this time 6 orphanages has been closed in the region. One more will be closed this year. The situation is improving due to sending kids to foster families. The national policy of Belarus is to reject the idea of orphanages. Every child ought to have a family.
