Memorial Germany Supports Podmoskovny Lyceum in Russia

May 2, 2012

For the first time, the German branch of Russian human rights NGO Memorial has decided to support the work of the Podmoskovny lyceum and boarding school through a donation.

The Podmoskovny Lyceum and boarding school located in Koralovo, forty kilometres from Moscow, was founded by Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his mother in 1994. It provides an education and upbringing, free of charge, for orphans and children from socially disadvantaged families. It is funded entirely by donations.

With this gesture of solidarity, Memorial Germany hopes to make a contribution to the continuity of the school.

Memorial say it finds this support worthwhile in fostering the school’s educational principles which focus on the children and their development and allows them to live self-dependently as citizens of a new Russia.
