Our organization turned 25 years!
During these years we've managed to work with a lot of orphanage graduates aged 15-18, who leave an orphanage as soon as they are 18 years old. Their independent life starts with employment difficulties, getting into higher education and finding a place to live. Two years ago, City Administration built five 3 storey buildings and many graduates found their homes. After that we organized a number of meetings, where third aged volunteers taught the graduates how to cook, sew, knit as well as childcare. They talked a lot about how to create a cosy atmosphere at home.
Our volunteers also treated the participants with their homemade pickles and jam and gave them some vegetables that they had grown themselves. Most importantly, there was a dialogue between generations, because all our participants got on like a house on fire. They exchanged their phone numbers and still keep in touch. We really hope that their meetings continue and will be useful both for our graduates and volunteers.
