As in any organization, you need the people who work there to be passionate about what they do. When a person is interested in what they do, they can engage others too.
There are some things that you can strictly organize, write down in detail, and have everything planned with all the figures. But sincerity and openness come first and foremost. And Perspektivy possesses it – sincerity, openness and transparency. That is why we support them, the result is visible.
People need to understand what you do and what the raised money is spent on.
Charitable organizations are not always “transparent”. Perspektivy, for example, very meticulously cares for each of the people they are in charge of, working hard to try to make their life better. From educating their employees to brushing the teeth of the children, and providing for their school education. What is more, they are working on changing the regulations and protecting the rights of these people. This kind of work is not always visible but is very important.
It is much easier to build playgrounds and open them very pompously.
Come to Razdolye
(in the village of Razdolye, «Perspektivy» has opened a house of assisted living as an alternative to the big psycho-neurological asylums)
to see how people live, how they learn something new every day. Unfortunately, it is not so interesting for most people.
As they say, “even a teardrop of a single child isn’t worth a war”. You need to talk to the people in the asylum to realize the importance of it. One of them is Dima. He is very responsible and clever and always talks about how he tries to do everything by himself and what he wants to learn next. There are a lot of people who think this way in the asylum. They really need it.
