NCFU Opens Befriending School

Date of material placement: 15-09-2016, 09:49.

NCFU has launched the Befriending School, which is the first one in the region. The purpose of this is to facilitate adjustment of people with disabilities and help them integrate into the society.

The project was initiated by Alina Nakova, a 3rd year student majoring in Defectology.

Numerous students and teachers attended the opening ceremony, which is evidence to the high importance of the activity launched:

- Physical disabilities often hide huge potential behind, and such people need neither financial nor physical yet emotional support, and we can offer this to them. We believe that this school will develop not in our region alone but also beyond it, and we will do our best to help it thrive, - Darya Zinkovskaya (member of Youth Government) was quoted as saying.

The name for the school comes from the English expression, which means to be friendly. The school’s activity will be aimed at not developing a friendly attitude towards people with disabilities but also at helping them open up their full potential.

Now the project has found some interest from other places as well – on October 6 a similar school is opening in the Chechen Republic, while Nizhny Novgorod and Moscow are analyzing potential opening of such schools.
