Make a ‘small’ dream of disabled orphans come true – help us in creating “The House of Faith, Hope, and Love”
Supported living is the most advanced world practice of arranging disabled people into moderate houses (communities, centers, etc.). Unlike the orphanages, there will be from 4 to 8 people. The inhabitants of the community will have the possibility to grow personally, organize their living and make other decisions about arranging their lives. They will be closely connected with the commonalty and may take part in its life. The inhabitants of the community may get an education according to an individual plan. They may also work inside the community and outside, making money on one’s own.
The first and the most important step has already been made. The house in Obertyn town, Tlumtskyi district, Ivano-Frankivsk region was bought. The square footage of the main part of the house is 72 m2 (51 m2 - living square footage). A part of the building is made out of bricks, and the other part – out of clay and wood.
Loads of things should be done in order for this house to become a new and real home to disabled orphans. First of all, the house needs inside and outside reconstruction. Secondly, the house needs repairmen works and adjustment so that the disabled inhabitants can move freely inside the house and around it and feel comfortable. The house has and adjoining building, which will become one of the rooms, and a couple more adjoining buildings, which will also be used for the needs of community. One of them will transform into a workshop.
A lot of stamina and funs are needed to make it.
This is why we start collecting money for reconstruction, repairmen, and furnishing the house in Obertyn town, and adjusting it to the needs of disabled people.
The orphans, who will live there, are looking forward to the possibility of moving from the orphanage to their new home. This is a real chance of being responsible for one’s own life, having one’s own room and personal belongings, and even taking part in the life of the commonalty.
