The School Needs


Most of the children spend weekends with their parents. But there are children who stay at school 24/7. Most of them are orphans and children who are deprived of parental care. In total there are 12 children who are orphans and the rest are from the villages of the Zaporozhye region who have been deprived of any parental care. These are the children who most of all feel the lack of comfort, parental love and care.

The pupils of this school have some learning difficulties but they still enjoy their lives and smile in the sun.

There are dancing, singing, and handicraft clubs at the school. Children can make wooden crafts, leather pictures, sew soft toys etc.

In early spring, when nature wakes up and the lilac blossoms, children go on holiday to the Lilac Grove, where sports contests and other interesting competitions on the fresh air are held. In summer, children return home. Some children go on holidays to Kirillovka sea resort for improving their health.

You can visit these pupils and give them your attention and kindness at weekdays from 14.00 p.m. – till 19.00 p.m. and at the weekend from 9.00 a.m. – till 21.00 p.m.
