Program «Let’s have fun!»

Excursion to «Sollers» auto-making plant

On May 23 Partnership «Helping hands» organized an excursion for kids from the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi» to «Sollers» auto making plant. Teenagers like visiting the plant where they have an opportunity to learn more about car-assembling lines. They enjoy looking at the process of assembling of new cars. Children are told which professions are the most required at the plant. .

Boys admire production capacity and hi-tech machinery. Kids in a difficult life situation often have problems finding their path in life, and such excursions can help orient them in the world of professions and possibilities. The second excursion was organized on the same day for Vladivostok schoolchildren. Volunteers from the city resource center helped organize the excursion for the teenagers who were eager to learn about professions required at the plant.

During such excursions children get to comprehend the history of Russia, the culture, habits and traditions of Russian people. And they have much fun while being toured around the museum! If your enterprise is interested in the project and is ready to invite kids for an excursion, please contact our organization and we will organize an interesting event together!

The donated money will be spent on charity projects for the children and orphans of Vladivostok. The organizers of the seminar noted that “Reworld GG Company believes that helping children should not be a simple declaration in words like “social investment” but it should become the true nature of business and lifestyle and integral emotional of the company’s life”.

Program «Happy Birthday with love!»

In May our partnership and sushi-bar «Tokyo» continued a charity program for the disabled children. Many of the kids left the city after the school finished so the volunteers were able to give presents only to two kids.

And we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all our sponsors, partners and volunteers who participate in our projects. Stay with us and continue to do good things for children!
