One of her major responsibilities will be to follow all the kids who leave the local orphanages, keeing track of them and being prepared to mentor and coach them. She will work closely with staff member Katya in our Life Skill project, teaching and training youth and preparing them for interdependent living.
In addition, she will work with the grade 8 and 9 students from the two large state orphanages....connecting them with family, caring adults and helping develop a good plan for their graduation from the orphanage. Youth graduate at grade 9 from the ohanage and are often "lost" to the streets.
We welcome Tanya!
