OWF supplies new computers for Ukrainian children with eye disabilities

We have always said that One World Foundation and OneCoin are here for the long run. This is also the way we conduct our partnerships. We always look for ways to develop and expand them.
Therefore, we are extremely happy to continue working with Orphans' Future Charity Foundation in the Ukraine. After providing 10 computers for a Computer Lab at the Zalyschyky state-run boarding school in the Ternopil region of the Ukraine last year, we continue with our support this year as well.

Another boarding school will be added to One World Foundation's list of supported schools. New computers will be bought and installed at the Terebovlia boarding school for visually impaired children in Ukraine. The school is now home to roughly 150 children with eye problems. They will all be able to play and study on the new computers. 

We have also covered the whole rent for the Ternopil Resource Center for 2016, where boys and girls who left the orphanage institution in Ukraine (orphan graduates) will have a safe place to spend the night, to take a shower, have something to eat or use the computer room. The other services available there include internet access, including scanner, photocopier and printing services for educational and employment purposes; library; laundry facilities; social services and employment assistance as well as psychological help. Orphan graduates can also seek legal assistance and participate in workshops and seminars designed to help them make informed choices in respect of career options, personal finances as well as health and family issues.

During the months of March and April, every Wednesday was dedicated to Youth Club meetings, while every Thursday a Skype call with US students from Idaho University was held. Every two days, orphanage graduates come to the center to do their laundry, take a shower or just help with the organization of the Easter workshop and the charity projects. 

The Resource center also facilitates the better integration of the orphan graduates to the society and helps them with the transition into independent adults who can take care of themselves. Just imagine how hard is for a child that has always lived in a state institution to be left alone to deal with housing and registration issues. There is no state system for social support for orphan graduates which leads to drug and alcohol abuse problems, violence, prostitution and higher suicide rates. This was the main reason behind the establishment of the Resource Center where orphan graduates can come and seek help, find answers to their problems and get supported to build a better life for themselves.
