Helping children in need for as long as it takes…
Founded by a local community back in 1991 when Russia was facing the severest financial crisis after the fall of the Soviet Union, the Taganka childrenâs fund (TCF) is a grassroots charity which supports and speaks outfor Moscowâs vulnerable children and young people. Helping over 700 families with special needs (including single-parent families, large families in need, families with disabled children and parents), TCF is now providing a range of high-quality services to them to bring in a lasting positive change to their lives.
Tucked away in the cosy narrow streets of one of the oldest districts of Moscow, the charity believes in one simple idea behind its work: there is no better place for a child than a family. Thatâs why TCF focuses on an all-round support for families in need, be it material or psychological, educational or rehabilitation.
A professional team of 20 people is united by a desire to help children and families in need and provide warm and caring advice to everyone who calls for help. Supported by a network of enthusiastic volunteers and loyal friends and donors, TCF continues its work in Moscow to help those who might not be the most visible part of the population of one of the most expensive cities in the world. But these people are still there and still need help in order to integrate into the society and to become its active and valuable members.
