A closer look: deinstitutionalisation of child care systems

By Vadim Dovganyuk

When we look at campaigns like the ones of Lumos, Disability Rights International, Family For Every Child, and even my beloved ChildFund, you would suppose that institutions are basically places that shouldn’t exist at all, however, a question you may wish to have answered is how true this actually is. Orphans, children who lost both…

[Blog posts starting with “My opinion:” are based of my complete honest view about a certain subject.

[RANT] The term Orphan

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Urgh… I hate it when I as a non-native English speaker have to educate native English speakers… In this case, made even worse as the origin of the lack of understanding quite likely are non-native English speakers, like myself… I am just going to be to the point: The English term of Orphan comes from…

Have a safe Cyber Christmas

By Vadim Dovganyuk

As it’s Christmas Eve, it’s likely people are creating beautiful memories, memories some may want to eternalize with photos. I am going to keep this short, as the message is short: “Don’t overly share photos online!” If you wish to end the holidays with your (and your family’s) cyber-safety intact, please keep photos private.

After 2 years…

By Vadim Dovganyuk

2 years ago, I started my own quest, the quest to get every trustworthy organization listed that is supporting disadvantaged children within the area of Ukraine, and as of 2016 also Russia, and more importantly, that have no connection to politics, so not to any government, and neither support any means of political and military…

Which is not that strange, as when we go through life, situations will develop every day, and sometimes dishonesty is…

That one question that left me speechless

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Once I was asked “why do you not hate me?”, which is a rather disturbing question to hear regardless, but especially when you are unaware where the question comes from. It’s a question that was asked me a few years ago, which left me speechless, unaware that the question had a lot of feelings behind…

Goal achieved, problem remains

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Over a year ago, I started the fight with anti-institutionalization organizations over the terms “Orphan” and “Orphanages”.
