Culture for Kids
Express to Russia has launched Culture for Kids, a charity project aimed at bringing St. Petersburg’s fantastic culture to children who have limited access to it – orphans from the city’s orphanages.
As a part of our efforts, we sponsor Petersburg Parents - a regional social organization that assists St. Petersburg’s orphans in many ways: providing material help, medical and nursing care; helping the orphans adapt socially and also assistance in finding new parents for the children. Being a tour company, Express to Russia sponsors excursions for these children to many of the city’s cultural landmarks. During these tours, the kids expand their horizons and are exposed to many positive impressions and experiences. They visit the Hermitage Museum, the Russian Museum, the Ethnographical Museum and more; they can take a city tour dedicated to St. Petersburg’s history and its myths and legends; they visit the Admiralteisky Shipyard – the birthplace of the city. The little ones are taken to puppet-shows, the Fairy Tale Museum, the Cat Museum to name a few. Apart from the educational role that these excursions play in the lives of the children, these tours also help the kids communicate with people outside of the orphanages and promote skills that are vital for further social adaptation as they mature.
