When Communism fell in 1991 and the USSR was unraveling, it was evident that more was at stake than the social, political and economic structure of the former soviet states.
75 years of Communism rendered Russia a broken country without a strong moral code or any hope for its people.
As part of her job, Dr. Olga Polykovskaya (now Lutsenko), an official with the Academy of Pedagogical Science of the USSR. was asked by the Russian Minister of Education to research the best morals to teach in Russian schools. After researching various education models, she and her colleagues recommended to the government that a Bible based moral curriculum should be implemented. In 1992, she met with educators to develop this plan and in the process became a Christian.
The Russian government approved her plan for a moral curriculum, but to sustain a Christian presence in her country, she knew that she must form a Russian led organization. This was the genesis of The Kindness Foundation.
The Russian government made the decision to provide Biblical education for its country. Only through God’s grace and her determination was a link established between Russia and western Christians.
Soon, the Kindness Foundation signed an agreement with the Ukranian government as well and requests continue to pour in from other countries for the same Bible based curriculum.
The Kindness Foundation’s mission is to provide the Russian and Ukranian educational systems with Biblical materials and instruction
