Another project in its final stage is called "We say Hello like long-time friends". As a framework of this project, retired people became volunteers for orphanage graduates. The children asked them to carry out a number of cooking workshops. They learned how to make pies, cabbage soup, herbal tea and kvass (a Russian national drink from rye bread). Besides that, they played games, made toys, prepared for the New Year and had a lot of fun together.

We'd like to point out that our grannies became really good friends with the children and even prepared New Year gifts for them. The project was a real success and its participants are still keeping in touch.
