    In questo paese è presente Maksora, nostro Ente Fondatore

    MAKSORA, local civil society organization founded in Novosibirsk (Siberia, Russia) in 2000 and recognized by the Russian Government, works in the socio-educational sector.

    The association was created to meet the immediate needs of the working-class in the Lenin district, which had suffered serious hardship due to the immediate closure of factories, schools and public services. Today Maksora works every day throughout the territory alongside people in difficulty to deal with education, job creation, health, poverty, loneliness and integration.
