Children from residential schools and orphanages work together in our studio. They are very different—but there is also something that unites them. These are children who have been unlucky in life, from the outset and as a result of circumstances beyond their control. They are—orphans.
Children who live in orphanages are missing a great deal in life. At the same time, however, they grow up accustomed to living on state support—which often leads them to develop a consumerist attitude towards the world, thus hindering their socialization and adaptation once they leave the orphanage. We try to change this state of affairs.
Our organization “Maria’s Children” was created to help orphans and orphanage graduates to become full-fledged members of society by promoting their social, psychological and intellectual rehabilitation through various creative activities.
We want to have as many happy, engaged and successful people in our society as possible!
