Welcome, friends! We are so glad you have stopped by to support education at Velikoretskoye Orphanage in the Kirov region of Russia. We have been partnering with Georgyi, the orphanage director and school principal since 2008. One of the reasons we started the partnership was due to Georgyi’s focus on education for the kids that arrived at the orphanage. Over the years, we’ve seen several kids go on to university and colleges, as well as Russian tech schools to learn a trade. Kids have gone to Medical College, Design College, Construction College, Veterinarian College and University to become teachers. However, last year was the first year that every single orphan that graduated from the orphanage went on to College or University. We believe a contributing part of that success was the money raised in last years’ Change Their Story, when funds raised went to tutors for the kids that were graduating. This year, Georgyi has asked us to partner with him on funding tutors for all of the kids in the orphanage. As you can imagine, we are more than happy to work toward this goal with him. We are working to raise $4,200 to assist in elevating the graduates in the orphanage.
