Program «English corner»

In January charity partnership “Helping Hands” continued to organize free English lessons for Vladivostok children in city’s libraries. The project is carried out together with centralized Vladivostok library system and volunteers of "STEP" group. The lessons are devoted to different topics and children enjoy learning new words. This time the kids learnt animal words and played games. They watched cartoons, sang songs and had much fun!

Program «Moral values»

In January Francis Landivar, director of “Helping Hands”, held 2 seminars in school № 13 in the frames of the project to develop right moral values in teenagers. Francis taught the schoolchildren how to set goals and calculate the time required for their accomplishment. The teenagers also discussed important life issues such as life plans and how they should become a reality. The children shared their wishes and Francis advised them how to make them come true. The seminars and the discussions are held in English so the teenagers can also practice English while talking about essential things.

Program «Let’s have fun!» Excursion to «Sollers» auto-making plant

On January 16 Partnership «Helping hands» organized an excursion for kids to «Sollers» auto making plant. The excursion was organized for the children of the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi». The teenagers had a chance to learn about the plant's production process and to have a look at the car-assembling lines. Boys admired 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. We express gratitude to «Sollers» auto-making plant, our constant partner in this project, for cooperation!

Program «Elder sister, elder brother»

Partnership “Helping Hands” supports a program of volunteers who visit kids in the orphanages and organize weekend programs for them. On January 18 volunteers visited kids in the orphanage in Pokrovka village. The children were happy to receive guests, jumped with joy and even prepared small presents for volunteers! This time we invited a sponsor organization to come to visit the kids.

Primorsky branch of Sberbank helped our charity partnership buy New Year presents for the kids. The children were so happy to get figure skates, toys and new clothes. We also organized a tea party for the kids, played games and talked with them. Most children in the orphanage have problem parents and they appreciate every chance to communicate with adults.

These kids need love and attention and though they have two caring and responsible teachers it is definitely not enough! If you want to be a volunteer and participate in the program, please contact “Helping Hands”.

Program «Family club «Harmony»

On January 24 the Family club «Harmony», a joint project of our partnership “Helping Hands” and “Parus Nadezhdi” had its first meeting in the New Year. The meeting was called “winter fun”. The parents and family members were invited to the event and the kids were happy to meet with them. They played games, sang songs and took part in the show prepared by the center’s teachers. It is evident that it does not take much effort but desire to organize an enjoyable event for the kids who live without parents in the rehabilitation center. Everyone can donate some time and effort to make the life of these kids brighter.

Program: “Let’s have fun” Excursion to Arseniev museum

On January 26 Partnership «Helping hands» together with the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi» organized an excursion for kids to Arseniev museum. The kids visited the museum’s exhibition halls and special expositions. The guide told them interesting facts about the history of the museum and Primorsky krai. During such excursions children learn about the history of Russia, the culture, habits and traditions of Russian people. And they have much fun while being toured around the museum!
