Art restoring Children's dignity.

In Kyrgyzstan 50% of children live in poverty and one in eight in extreme poverty. Many live in aid and support centres. 88% of children are there due to poverty, not orphanhood.  After leaving the institution children often end up on the streets. That is why the Centre for Children and Family Support Kaleciok attempts to help the youngest join family structures again. Theatrical and dancing classes make them feel exceptional, increase their sense of higher social status, and stimulate them to take brave actions to improve their lives.  The leader of the group is Lera Pototskaia.
