Description of Our Community: Let us present a small Siberian town Uzhur that is located more than 300 kilometers from Krasnoyarsk, the biggest city of the region. The main industry here is agricultural products that are distributed all over the region. The best dairy and meat products are made here. The town is by the federal way connecting regional capital Krasnoyarsk with the area of beautiful lakes. A lot of people driving through the city in summer to get to them. The city is developing but at the same time keeping a lot of traditions from the past. We are in the middle of Siberia and Siberia is the heart of Russia.
Project Description: “Babushka” is a Russian word for “Grandmother” that has become known internationally. Our grannies are the center of our community as they are the main keepers of our traditional culture. Statistically women in Russia live much longer than men. They keep the families together, they help the children, they grow their grandchildren. They are the living history of our community. This project we devote to our Babushka. With huge love and respect.
