The action of Secours Catholique finds all its meaning in a global vision of poverty which aims at restoring the human person's dignity and is part and parcel of sustainable development. To do so, six key principles guide this action, both in France and abroad: Promoting the place and words of people living in situations of poverty Making each person a main player of their own development Joining forces with people living in situations of poverty Acting for the development of the human person in all its aspects Acting on the causes of poverty and exclusion Arousing solidarity The actions of Secours Catholique are implemented by a network of local teams of volunteers integrated into the diocesan delegations and supported by the volunteers and employees of the national headquarters.

We work with children and young adults from Moscow orphanages. Our mission is to help every child to learn and develop as a person, overcoming the negatives of an institutionalized past. Step Up is the first organization in Russia which, since 1999, has worked to provide orphans with a quality education, to motivate them to learn. We help graduates of orphanages to complete school, find jobs, pass college/university entrance exams. We provide specific help necessary to overcome the psychological complexes that plague orphans. We enable institutionalized orphans and orphanage graduates to make wise, mature and healthy decisions for their own live. We also work surmount and eventually change the prejudice against orphans that is so prevalent in Russian society. In Step Up we have a unique community of students, teachers, and volunteers built on healthy relationships, trust and respect - features that orphans often lack in the institutions. Our academic approach is specially designed to "de-victimize" our students. It combats hopelessness and powerlessness and fosters self-confidence. In 1999-2009 Post-Orphanage Education Center existed as a project within ROOF (Russian Orphan Opportunity Fund). Since September 2010 it is an independent organization "Step Up".

There's no such thing as somebody else's child; we are responsible for all children. They need care and warmth. And those who don't have parents need our help. Russia has some of the highest numbers of abandoned children in the world. We cannot stand by and watch this happen any longer. We will do everything in our power to ensure that as many children as possible are given the opportunity to live in loving homes, receive a quality education, develop as well-rounded individuals and participate fully in society. We want to bring people together and give everyone the chance to make a difference in the lives of orphaned children. We want to put an end to such tragic stories. We want to transform the lives of orphaned children, helping and supporting them in every way possible.
