Twenty orphanage graduates of Ternopil region from six state-run institutions received support of a set of household items for everyday independent adult life in a new environment. Unfortunately, the state (boarding schools) does not provide the necessary things for such youth. When we compare the situation when the children who arrive to college from family environment have all needed items for living in a student dormitory than children from state-run orphanages are lack of such possibility.
The set of household items for orphanage graduates included elementary things for life such as: a set of pots, a frying pan with a lid, a teapot, plates, mugs, forks, spoons, knives, food containers, pillow, bath towel, set of bed linen. With these things the orphan student will be able start his/her independent life in a hostel and the process of adaptation will be much softer.
Theses days were joyful and at the same time sad for our orphanage graduates because in front is unexplored life and fight for their successful and happy future.
