Through shared observation of the child while playing, participating in daily routines, responding to the familiar environment, the family and Portage practitioner build up a developmental profile of existing skills and understanding.  Not only is this vital information for planning the future, it highlights the child’s progress so far and celebrates what has already been achieved.

It is the dream of Sweet Hope to bring Portage to the children of the Khabarovsk Territory, Russia.  The local Ministry of Education is interested in this idea and is very open to new ways of assisting the children living in the Children’s Homes.  Sweet Hope intends to work with ThePromise to develop a Portage service first in the institutions, and then to the community at large.

Funding Goal: $3000/ year; $21,000 year 1
