“The most important thing that a person who has just come out of prison need is trust and support”

Andrey Doronichev, 35 years old. Director of Technical Department, DiVetro

When I was 15, I got my first criminal record. At 17 – the second. On the third criminal record I was supposed to be in prison. But by a happy coincidence, I was not. At 18, I got my first job at a car wash. At the same time I used drugs. As soon as I went into binge, I was fired. For a while I sat at home, then again I found a job, went into binge, got fired and so it went on for about 12 years. Then I got into rehabilitation and my life changed. DiVetro is the first company where I worked for five full years, without interruptions. In total, I have been sober for 6 years. Thanks to this job, I was able to create a family. I have two children, a beloved wife, we often travel. I think that everyone has the right to a second chance. Among the guys who have a criminal record behind their backs, there are a lot of those who really want to work. Each of them has a dream – not to rob a bank or steal a car – the guys dream of starting a family, building a house, giving birth to children. And for this they need a job and a director who will trust them.


“Even if a person does not have the perfect past, he needs to be given a chance to change, and he needs to be given a job”

Valentina Arabaji, 38 years old. Sales Manager

The first time I tried drugs when I was 14. I finally stopped at 33. First there was weed, then heroin. When all this became unbearable, I went for rehabilitation to the Positive Initiative therapeutic community. After a full course of rehabilitation I was looking for a job, where I would be surrounded by the same people as me – recovering.

Fortunately for me, I found this at DiVetro. We have a team in which we constantly learn, improve our skills, and grow as specialists. I believe that anyone deserves a second chance. Even if a person has stumbled, even if he does not have the right past, he needs to be given a chance to change, and he needs to be given a job.
