    Here’s a couple of our successes. The P-CED model, prescribing “at least 50% of profit” to community purpose was first deployed in Russia to source the Tosmk Regional Initiative and microfinance bank in 1999. It resulted in the creation of 10,000 “private entreprenuers” in Russian parlance, from a population of 600,000.

    Starting in 2004, the project in Ukraine invested profit in activism and advocacy which persuaded government to apply recommendations to create 400+ rehab centres and double the allowance for adopters.

    Last week we learned that for the first time domestic adoptions exceed those by foreign parents. It is very difficult to understand why so much effort goes into disregarding what has been an inordinate effort against unimaginable obstacles.
