Microfinance for Russian Orphans

The Russian Orphans Opportunity Fund (ROOF) is seeking someone with expertise in microfinance to help them provide opportunities for Russian orphans, that they may lead productive lives rather than live out their lives in institutions, which, tragically, happens often. Such investments would also benefit the communities in which the orphanages are located, and would enhance the relationship between the community and the orphanges, building bonds between them. Here is the call from their website:   http://www.roofnet.org/node/94 

One of the orphanages in which they work, Belskoye Ustye, is a “psycho-neurological internat.” This a institutional structure which is a holdover from the Soviet Era. ROOF began working there in 2000, and there have been great strides, but there is much left to do in terms of providing the orphans there with opportunities for full lives.
