New school year has begun

We're a week into the new school year. The Youth Centers of Nadezhda Fund, our partner ministry in Russia, are busy preparing to accommodate new participants and new programs of Orphan's Tree. This year we're expanding our Young Families program to include Ivanovo and Kostroma regions, adding a teacher of crafts in Ivanovo Youth Center, developing and expanding the Job Preparation program to offer internships and teach Junior Achievement materials, and much more. Also, Orphan's Tree is preparing to begin working in St. Petersburg and Moscow.
