Program «Let’s have fun!». Excursion to Arseniev museum

On September 15 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. They learnt about flora and fauna of the Ussuriisk taiga and enjoyed taking photos in the exhibition hall of Ussuriisk taiga animals. The children had a chance to see interesting letters and photos from archives of famous people of Primorye.

. The guide lectured them on the history of the Primorsky krai and native people and told interesting facts about their culture, habits and traditions. The children had 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!

Program «Adaptation of orphans-graduates to independent life»

On September 16 Partnership «Helping hands» organized the first meeting for orphans who graduated from orphanages this year and became students. Tens of such teenagers arrive in Vladivostok to study and they face many challenges during the first year of their independent life. They often skip studies because they cannot deal with the difficulties. They have problems with clothes and money.

They often misbehave in the dormitories and cannot manage their time. We help these children start the process of adaptation to new life. We help with the stationery for studies, give practical trainings on how to behave in the society and how to succeed in studies and in life. We started the program last year and many of our orphans successfully finished the first year of their studies and did not get lost in the big city. Director of «Helping hands» Francis Landivar and curator of the project Yevgeny Chernyshev told the orphans about the main goal of the program and promised to help during the adaptation period.

We plan to organize seminars and trainings, as well as master classes for our first-year graduates. The second-year students who participated in the program last year shred their experience and said that seminars with our psychologist helped them a lot especially when they needed to adapt to a new collective of students from normal families. We would like to invite all interested people and professionals who can share their experience or give educational trainings or seminars to contact our partnership «Helping hands» so we can organize them together in the nearest time!

Program «Family club Harmony»

Every month the family club «Harmony» - a joint project of “Helping Hands” and “Parus Nadezhdi”, a rehabilitation center for the kids in difficult life situation, organizes interesting meetings for these kids. On September 24 volunteers came to the kids and staged a fairy tale show for the little ones. The kids were dressed in fancy costumes, played and sang songs. After that they had a tea party with sweets and cakes and fruits. The children were happy. They greatly enjoyed the show “In Wonderland”.

It does not take much time and effort to create a colorful world of a fairy tale for children and make them smile happily. All you need is love and sincere desire to make something good for the little ones who are currently in difficult life situation. If you are ready to volunteer your time and participate in the projects, call our office and we will help you become part of our social projects.

Program «English club»

On September 29 we resumed English language classes in the rehabilitation center «Parus Nadezhdi». Partnership “Helping Hands”, together with foreign language school “English Planet”, implements this program in order to give the kids in a difficult life situation some practical knowledge that will be of use in their future life.

The children learnt English in an easy and funny way. They solved puzzles, participated in contests and drew pictures. Teachers from language school “English Planet” and Francis Landivar, director of a non-commercial partnership “Helping Hands” believe that learning English language can be both useful and enjoyable!

Program «Bus of kindness»

On September 27 partnership «Helping Hands» together with Primorsky organisation for disabled children «Detstvo» and our sponsor auto center “Goodman” organized a joint summer program “Bus of kindness” for disabled kids. This time the kids and their parents went to the family recreation park “Shtykovskie prudy”. The park’s administration helped with free admission to the territory and provided a big equipped place for a barbecue picnic. The teachers from the rehabilitation center “Parus Nadezhdi” prepared a funny show game for the kids which was called “Autumn fair”. The children had much fun playing different games. We also invited ten kids from the rehabilitation center to participate in the show and in games.

After the show the children had an autumn feast of barbecued sausages and vegetables. “Helping hands” treated all kids with apples. The children also had a tea party with rolls and sweets. Then the children had a chance to take a nice walk around the park, to play and socialize with other kids.

We also organized a master class for the children who wanted to make handicrafts. The children were keen to make small toys and autumn decorations. Sporty children had fun playing darts. The children and their parents spent good time together in the open air and were thankful for such trip. They say that most of the time their kids stay home and feel lonely. Such trips help them socialize and feel needed.

This time we took 60 kids for a trip, and 10 of them were kids in a difficult life situation. Not only they had fun performing in the show but also had a good chance to enjoy all children’s games and activities.

Program «Happy Birthday with love»

We continue our special project for disabled kids and every month we congratulate them with their birthdays. In August 4 invalid children received presents and were happy to meet the guests on a special day. In September other 4 children were happy to get presents and become the center of love and attention. We thank our constant partner -sushi-bar “Tokyo” for their sincere interest and participation in this program!
