CEKPET, Ltd./dba Malenkaya Kompaniya /dba KidzHOME – House of Multicultural Education is a grassroots non-profit organization of parents interested in a good education for their children. Since we work mostly with immigrant families, we try to combine American values with those of the heritage culture, helping families adjust to the US educational system while keeping the heritage language. Our goals are to attract kids to reading in any language, help them thrive in school, develop their creative skills, and maintain inter-generational ties within the family. In order to achieve our goals, we conduct various classes, educational workshops, and theater shows, organize the Olympiada of Spoken Russian (together with the American Council of Teachers of Russian), contests, and other events, and publish a literary magazine for Russian-speaking children and their families.
The CEKPET, Ltd., based in Russian American heritage, seeks to enhance the lives of Russian-speaking and mixed families in the USA and help their children to adjust to the US educational system while preserving their Russian language and cultural heritage, as well as sharing this heritage with non-Russian-speaking children, through programs designed to develop spirit, mind and body.
