Russia Without Orphans


Russia is the largest country in the world geographically and has a population of 142.5 million.  Orphan estimates range between 700,000 to 2 million orphans, with some orphans living in institutions and others in family care ranging from guardianship to adoption.

Russia Without Orphans was lauched in April, 2012 at a conference with 450 delegates from 38 regions of the Russian Federation plus speakers and specially invited guests. The movement is continuing to grow and thrive.

Since Russia is so large geographically, RWO is currently focusing on strengthening Without Orphans movements in regions around Russia and on raising up regional coordinators.
