Excursion to "Sollers" auto-making plant. Program "Let's have fun!"

On December 7, 2012 children from Vladivostok orphanages visited auto-making plant "Sollers". This plant always leaves a lasting impression on kids who are interested in looking at new cars and assembly lines. Some children come to this plant, a giant of car industry in the Russian Far East for the first time. They ask many questions and start to think about their future and opportunities to work at such a plant. Such excursions can help them find their way in life and motivate them to study well in order to be able to get a good job in the future.

Program "Elder sister, elder brother"

On December 8, 2012 sixteen volunteers from a special organization "Istok" came to Vladivostok orphanage №2. Volunteers got acquainted with the kids and then played with them. Then they had an educating game about nice and correct speech. The game made children think of association words, explain the choice of words and suggest their own variants to other players. Another game was planned to create a strong emotional impression about the meeting – all participants drew hands and wrote his impressions from the new acquaintances. It was a funny experience. In the end the volunteers held a master class on how to make small decorative things. Children were happy to learn it. Both volunteers and children received many positive emotions during the visit and are looking forward to upcoming visits.

Gathering all children willing to participate, volunteers held a specially prepared game "A train of Etiquette". Having formed a train, volunteers and kids moved from one "station" to another, learning basics of good behavior. Music and dancing helped to make the activity more fun. At the "station" of "Undisciplined children " volunteers involved the kids in the game about bad and good behavior, then followed the "stations' of "Please" and "Etiquette Knowledge", a station of "Good words" and finally the station of "Friendship". Children talked about their friends and friendship, read a fairy tale and drew pictures to it.

«Happy Birthday with love»

Our Program for disabled children is going well. In December 11 invalid kids received Birthday presents from a volunteering organization Sushi-bar "Tokyo". Volunteers dressed like New Year personage Snegurochka came to children's homes to give individual Birthday presents. Children were happy to feel love and care of other people and the most valuable was the fact that this attention was given on their Birthdays! Parents were also thankful for such attention to their kids.

The program «Smile»

In December we continued working with the program to support poor families of Vladivostok. We invited Ivan Artemiev to receive free dental treatment. Our charity partner, a dental clinic "Implants", is part of the project. Ivan received a certificate for free medical treatment in this clinic. Ivan's mother said that Ivan suffers from a serious disease and as a result of intensive medical treatment which he has to take, his teeth are getting destroyed. Dental help is expensive and the family needs support since they are unable to cope with all expenses on their own. We are happy that our partners in this program can provide charity help to kids from such families. We always welcome new partners willing to join our programs!
