Update on Moscow students
Orphan’s Tree is currently supporting six young people who study in Moscow. The support includes paid tuition, personal stipends and mentorship. We’re very proud of their hard work and success and are happy to share with you their feedback: “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your invaluable help. Last year I was accepted to the institute of polygraphy and I love studying marketing there. Without your help during many years I wouldn’t be able to achieve such success. Thanks to you, during three years (9th, 10th and 11th grades) I regularly received help from tutors in various subjects and attended preparatory courses in Vladimir University. I had a unique opportunity to develop my artistic skills, expand my knowledge, improve my school performance and successfully pass all exams. I thank you so much!” Katya Ts.
“I’m very grateful to you for your help. Without it, without tutoring opportunities I wouldn’t be able to pass the exams and study in Moscow. The first several months in Moscow were very hard for me: I had to deal with new people, new environment, new responsibilities – everything was new. But I felt very encouraged knowing that you care about me. I thank you for everything.” Alina G.
“Last year I transferred to a new university, and it was a challenging transition. In my new school there are many more students, different requirements and many subjects that I need to take in addition to my regular ones to catch up. The support of Nadezhda Fund helped me to focus on my studies and I passed all my winter exams in 15 subjects successfully. People often ask me whether I work. Right now I’m spending a lot of time on my studies and still have 15 more subjects to take next semester, so I don’t have time for a full-time job, but I occasionally I find time to use my photography skills (photography is my hobby) to shoot weddings. During the last school break I did two of them. I also work a few hours as a promoter on weekends to make some extra income. I really want to have a serious job one day but I know that I need to work hard now to be able to qualify for one later. And I thank you for helping me on my way to it.” Natasha Ch.
“I thank you for your support and encouragement during this challenging and important period of my life. I transferred to a different school this year and I have many subjects to catch up with. I’m working hard on them and some teachers even say that I may graduate with “a red diploma” (the Russian way to say Magna Cum Laude). I hope to and I’ll do my best. I like to study and I know that studying hard will help me become a good specialist.” Svetlana B.
“I’m thankful to God for your support that helps me study in Moscow. I’m really enjoying my school and my favorite class in a movie class. My grades are good and excellent and I passed all my winter exams successfully. May God bless you and your families abundantly!” Anya
Please continue praying for these remarkable young people.
