On recent Saturdays - 5 and 12 November - our children from Family Care Assistance Centers “Raduga” and “Sputnik” were invited to PokeVille Café on Barrikadnaya. There they had lots of fun and a delicious lunch. The kids drew pictures, played games, sang songs, danced, made special pokemon’s hamburgers and then ate them with a great appetite.. It was really cheerful and yummy! Thank you to Yulia Aseeva and Poke Ville Café for the warm welcome!


Last weekend the Beauty salon “Follow me” invited our girls-graduates to create a fresh image. They were offered new hair-styles and even new hair-colors. All the day long we discussed how to treat your hair in home conditions and after that we had a little tea-party with sweets. The girls were really happy with that Sunday. Thank you very much to the whole Follow Me team! It was a very useful and pleasant day!
