The average life expectancy of a Russian orphan is only 30 years of age. While many have lost parents to death, over 90% of Russian orphans still have at least one living parent but have been orphaned because of alcohol abuse, financial distress, or other social factors.
The mission of Change30 is to inspire purpose in Russian orphans by providing them with the love, guidance & critical resources they need to lead fulfilling lives & develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
To influence change, we first establish relationships based on a foundation of hope, love, and trust. We focus on nurturing & maintaining strong relationships with the children while they are living in the orphanages, so that once they graduate and are living on their own, they trust our Change30 staff & know that we are always available to help them.
