There are many people in the world who need our help…
We work, earn money, aspire up on the career ladder, and then purchase material goods –buy new cars, even apartments, go to restaurants, have vacations at sea resorts, etc… A minority of us thinks of how much good and benefit we can bring to other people, by sacrificing something very small, something the absence of which we won’t really notice. Even small instances, for example holding the door open for an old woman to pass, or giving a hand to a passer-by who slipped and fell down near us. That doesn’t happen very often. We are somehow always in a hurry, are late for meetings and do not devote the precious minutes of our time to unfamiliar people.
But even these seemingly insignificant examples are opportunities when our help is eventually much more valuable than our expenses. They often even have no money equivalent, but they are valued very high. In particular this refers to children, children who are ill or orphans. What we take for granted, they consider a real feast. What we do not value is of vital importance for them.
ALPE consulting firmly believes in making its own contribution to charity and in particular improving the life of children who are orphans or suffer from a serious disease.
Our company has already contributed to charitable causes and will continue to do so. Going forward, ALPE consulting is planning to grow considerably as an organization and with growth also comes an increase in possibilities to partake in charitable events and actions. For the near future we are planning new charity projects and we will keep you informed on our website.
Cooperation with non-profit organization – CHARITABLE FOUNDATION "HELP"
ALPE consulting firmly believes in making its own contribution and improving the life of children who are orphans or suffer from a serious disease. Last year the company’s managers visited the residential school of type 8 in a village called Zhelybino in the Tula Region. Children aged from 7 to 17, lagging behind their peers in development, live and study there. Their school – an old building built in 1908 – requires major overhaul including kitchen equipment and even the furniture in the living areas that has not been renewed for over 10 years. Assistance from ALPE consulting was aimed at fixing exactly those problems. In addition, the children were presented with sports clothes, training shoes and a large LCD TV set.
In Russia it is customary to give presents over the New Year Holidays. We decided to send allocated funds as a gift to the Charitable Fund “Help” aimed at curing the children from their illnesses and diseases. ALPE consulting financed the surgeries of Nikita Penkov, Marina Turischeva, Matvey Pigalev and Ilya Kravtsov.

Cooperation with SOS children’s villages in Russia
ALPE consulting continues its charity work and keeps supporting orphans and children from poor families, who are deprived of the opportunity to live with their parents. In view of all that, Alexander Schachner, General Director of ALPE consulting, along with other members of the company visited the SOS Kids’ Village in the town of Tomilino located in Moscow region.
More than 60 kids live in this village in detached brick houses, constructed specially for them. In each house there is a so-called “family”, with a SOS-Mommy, taking care of “her” kids, fulfilling all daily functions of a real Mother. The children call her “Mom”. She takes the kids to school, cooks meals for them, does cleaning and is involved in their upbringing. Twelve houses are located in the Kids’ Village, each housing a family consisting of a mother and 5-7 kids between the ages of 4 to 17. Mikhail Borisovich, Pedagogical Director and Nikolay Yurievich Slabzhanin, Managing Director of Moscow Village organized for us an excursion, explaining to us the history of the “village upbringing model” and invited us for a cup of tea to one of the families. Here we had a chance to view the effectiveness of the Austrian system, in place in Russia since 1996.
Besides the corporate donation transferred to the SOS Kids’ Villages, employees of the Moscow and St. Petersburg offices of ALPE consulting had collected money and bought as team cooker, fruits and sweets as presents for the orphans. Sponsors, Vladlen Afanasiev and Mikhail Parshin, presented the kids with new stuffed toys, booksand educational games.
In January employees from the St. Petersburg office also visited another SOS Kids’ Village located in the town of Pushkin in Saint Petersburg region.
We firmly believe that our help and assistance will encourage these children to adapt to social life much easier and allow them to find their place in life as adults in the future.
