Boys from Zaporozhye orphan asylum with their Teacher Alla Yakovlevna Stroganova
Thanks to the help of the ‚ÄúHappy Child" Foundation benefactors on August 9th sixteen kids from Zaporozhye Orphan Asylum for boys with the abnormality of mental development went to the island of Khortitsa to visit the Zaporozhye Cossacs History Museum and also the cultural complex ‚ÄúZaporozhye Sech‚ÄĚ.
One could not but notice how responsible the kids felt about the trip. Everyone looked very neat and behaved perfectly! For them it was very important, because many of the boys only saw the Dnipro hidro power station for the first time on the way to the museum. The teachers of the orphanage asylum ‚ÄĒ Alla Yakovlevna Stroganova and Tatiana Alexandrovna Kompaniets told us, that the boys were looking forward to the excursion, as they seldom leave the walls of the orphanage. But since Ludmila Victorovna Honcharenko became the head of the institution, many things have changed for the better
On the way to Khortitsa
On the island, the guides Alexey Fedorovich Kazantsev and Svetlana Ivanovna Semenyuk fascinated the kids with interesting and informative stories about the history of Zaporozhya land. The boys saw with their own eyes the generalized image of the capital of the Free Land of Zaporozhye Sech.
