Olga Igorivna has found a new school and has started on September 1st, 2007 to study at Kachovsky state agricultural technical school. She decided to go to this technical school in Kachovka, rather than to the school in Snigurivka, because it is closer to where she used to live.
Olga is doing a preparatory year before starting technical school. She takes lessons in math, physics, Ukraine and English language, Ukraine and foreign literature, chemistry, biology and world history. Quite a comprehensive list of subjects, isn’t it?
In 2011, when she will graduate from Kahovsky State Agricultural Technical School, she will have a diploma as ‘технолога пищевой промышленности’ which translates to ‘technologist of the food-processing industry’.
Director Svetlana Petrovna of Kherson Baby House has received the mandate to carry out a pilot project of a Montesorri classroom, similar to the one we helped realize for Nikolaiev Baby House in 2006.
For more information about the classroom in Nikolaiev please read this article or that article.
The 2nd and 3rd phase of this long-term project are finished to everybody’s satisfaction. The results are very impressive 🙂
Olga Igorivna was born on August 25th 1986. Her parents refused her at the maternity hospital because of multiple medical problems. She stayed at Nikolaiev Baby House (NBH) till September 1992, during which time she had many surgery operations.
December 2006 Director Olga Ivanovna from NBH, who stayed in contact with her even after her departure from NBH, contacted us and asked for help.
A sad and really touching story where we wanted to help.

Flight back via Budapest to Zurich, with a mess in Budapest… 🙄

The road back to Nikolaiev was full of police controls. Vika always gets along well with police. Other than many kilometers there isn’t much news to report today 🙂 . Ah yes, spring finally seems to arrive to Ukraine!

Today, we visited in the name of OBS school internat (boarding school) at Zeleniy Gay and on behalf of LAdS France we visited specialized orphanage ZGO. We decided to finance a new heating system as continuation of the water project.
Little Vika is recovering well three days after her difficult operation. more
During the September/October trip, we went to Kherson to start this project which we initiated back in May 2006 (to see the previous article on this subject).

We succeeded in finishing the purchase of the Montessori material at the market of Nikolaiev, not without difficulty. The remainder of the day was devoted to the assessment of the voyage and to the accounting.
Friday, October 13th
We spent the day trying to resolve the many last open points and to return to the Baby House of Nikolaiev. Great news: director Olga Ivanovna is invited to a series of seminars on health in Germany and Switzerland! Partly thanks to our assistance, she will leave tomorrow for a long trip by bus which will take her among other places also to Zurich, Bern and Geneva!
During 2005, we’ve got in touch (through Internet) with an Irish family who adopted in Kherson Baby House. They were thrilled to hear we were visiting that orphanage and have asked us to transmit pictures and letters as well as to asess their needs…
