40% of orphans can get only the education they are granted in a boarding or vocational school, children's ombudsman Yuri Pavlenko told a briefing before the international conference “Protection of children's rights in terms of social adaptation of orphans and children deprived of parental care", ForUm correspondent reports.

According to him, 40% of orphans and children deprived of parental care, who enter the adult life, have a specialty or are working in the specialty, which they acquired in an orphanage or a vocational school. "The majority of children receives the specialty not due to their desires and interests, but on the basis of opportunities of an institution to provide them with a hostel," Pavlenko said.

Giving exclusive comments to ForUm, director of the Social Policy Ministry State Department for Adoption and Protection of the Children’s Rights Ruslan Kovbasa said that only 13% of orphans, after graduating from boarding schools or family-type children's homes, continue their education at universities. "Majority of the orphans studies in vocational or technical schools, acquiring working specialties, depending on a region they live in," he stressed.
