How can you support our project?

The construction of Happy House-3 within the framework of Happy Home for Orphans project was started in September 2013 in the village of Ukrainka, Mikhailovsky District, Zaporozhye Region, 17 km from Vasilyevka. The house situated in the center of Happy Child ecovillage.
