So it happened that our acquaintance with orphans’ problems began with Zaporozhye boarding school #3. And this website www.deti.zp.ua was originally the website of Zaporozhye boarding school #3. A few volunteers who had created it in April 2004, only wanted to have a computer class for the orphans of this establishment.
Only later we comprehended the vast range of problems of children, and our area of interests expanded considerably. Now the website is called "Children of Zaporozhye" and we try to help not only orphans but also seriously ill and handicapped children.
Zaporozhye special comprehensive secondary boarding school “Svitanok” ("Sunrise") of the Zaporozhye Regional Council welcomes you.

You can learn about the teaching staff, the students, steps to preservation and promotion of health of the pupils who study here.
