Excursion to Arseniev museum. Program: "Let's have fun"

On August 19 Partnership «Helping hands» together with the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi» organized an excursion for kids to Arseniev museum. The museum has several exhibitions and this time the boys stayed for a long time near the display of swords and arms gazing at them with much interest.

The girls liked the guide's story about the history of the costume. The children also visited other halls displaying exhibits about the history and culture of China and Japan. The kids love visiting the museum because they learn a lot of interesting facts not only about the Russian people and their traditions but also about history and habits of neighboring countries.

Program "Bus of kindness"

On August 24 Partnership «Helping hands» together with auto center "Goodman" and his director Sergei Kravets organized a trip of "Bus of kindness" for the youngest kids of the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi». The children had a chance to get to the sea for the first time this summer.
Some of the parents joined their kids in this trip. The kids had much fun building sand castles and swimming in the sea. Teachers of «Parus Nadezhdi» prepared a special program for the kids who were eager to jump, run and play in the open air. After all those funny and very active games the children were treated to tea and pies.

Visit to "Treasure Island". Program «Let's have fun»

On August 27 we organized a visit for kids to children's entertainment center «Treasure Island». 50 children from orphanage № 2 and orphanage № 4 and from the rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdi" played and had fun in this entertainment center. This program is specially intended for orphans to give them a chance to visit the city's entertainment centers.
The kids greatly enjoyed amusement rides, bouncy castles, prize machines. Volunteers who assist partnership «Helping hands» came with their own entertainment program and organized games and contests for the kids. Everything went well! Orphans always await this monthly visit to «Treasure Island» where they feel truly welcome!

Excursion to «Sollers» auto making plant. Program: "Let's have fun"

On August 30 Partnership «Helping hands» organized an excursion for kids from the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi» to «Sollers» auto making plant. The teenagers were shown how the cars are assembled, inspected and how they are later sent for sales.

The children had many questions and expressed much interest in the working process. We organize such excursions for teenage children in a difficult life situation to help orient them in the world of future professions and opportunities.

We would like to express special gratitude to general director of "Sollers" Alexander Korneichuk who provides such an opportunity to hold excursions for the kids in the plant.

Program «Smile»

In August we continued the program of support of the kids from the underfinanced families. This time a certificate for free dental treatment was given to Nastya Petrova. Nastya comes from an extended family with modest finances and the parents are unable to pay for expensive dental treatment. Nastya has problems with teeth because many of them are currently crumbling. Our partner in this program, dental clinics "Implants" agreed to provide free dental help to this girl. We hope that in September Nastya will come to school with a happy and healthy smile!

Program «Happy Birthday with love»

In August we managed to congratulate 4 invalid kids with their birthdays. Artyom Egorov, Kostya Kontorschikov, Sveta Soloviyova and Kostya Maximchenko were happy to get the presents!. Sushi-bar «Tokyo», a constant partner of our organization in this program, took special care to select bright and desirable presents for the kids!

Project «Youth center»

In August we made small repairs in the youth center while the kids were on vacations. We prepared our center for the new school year. Classes of English, computer, dancing and art will resume on September 9. Francis Landivar, director of "Helping hands" partnership, handed in invitations for children from poor families to directors of 30 city schools. This year we plan to have all studios full of children.
The center can receive up to 160 teenagers. Besides the program for kids from underfinanced families, we will launch a new project for graduates of orphanages who come to study in Vladivostok. The first meeting of the orphans-graduates club is scheduled for September 7. We plan to organize seminars and lectures for the orphans who need assistance in their independent life in the big city. The youth center will serve as a place where they can come for advice and help.
