It was formed in 2002, having adopted the statement of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations” that “children have the right to special care and assistance” as a basis for its activity.
Hence the main thrust of the work of the Foundation:
health of children and their physical development;
spirituality and accessibility of education.
By sending its activity to the most vulnerable sections of society, the “Sabi” Foundation is engaged in providing assistance to orphans and children left without parental care,
talented children from socially unprotected families, children with serious health problems, and, expanding the boundaries of basic goals, people with disabilities.
The mission of the “Sabi” Foundation is to promote public understanding of the sphere of charity, to make philanthropy effective for beneficiaries and attractive for sponsors.
We strive to avoid historical mistakes of the charitable movement, when in the 50s-60s adherents of the largest foundations made prosperity one of the compulsory human rights. Such a stock policy has led to the fact that several generations of people grew accustomed to dependence and unwilling to social independence.
However, philanthropy is more than dry
measuring the amount of donated money. Its meaning in the distribution is not so much consumer goods, as the means by which people themselves can buy these goods. As the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said: “If you give a needy fish, he will feed himself all day, if you give him a fishing rod – he will be full all his life.”
Proceeding from our position, life should be changed by the forces of people themselves, and not by philanthropic activists, – philanthropists only initiate these changes.
This understanding of the mission predetermines the Fund’s management of socially significant and purposeful activities on the principles of monitoring, planning, technological and monitoring results
