The Purpose of Our Programmes:
The purpose of Sheredar programmes is social and psychological adaptation of children who suffered oncological and haematological diseases. Each activity is organised to allow every child to try something new, to overcome her/his fear and – which is very important - to succeed. It can be a horse ride, a performance in front of other children, or making a handmade postcard. Our counsellors (we call them “Sheries” from “Sheredar”) and activity leaders (or “Masters”) always support a child by creating a friendly environment and helping her/him to become more self-confident.
What Children Do at Sheredar:
Every day of a programme is filled with interesting events. Children take part in active events (horse riding, archery) and creative workshops (art studio, cartoon studio, journalism). These activities allow them to express themselves and understand that they can achieve a lot. Every evening the teams – children, their Sheries and Masters – gather to have and evening “Whispering meeting” to discuss day’s results and share their impressions.

Each suit has sanitary facilities, and one shower room is accecible for people with disabilities. There is a ramp near every house. The place is surrounded by green forest and the Sheredar and Kirzhach rivers flow nearby. Children ride horses, walk in the forest with our volunteers and enjoy fresh air.
