Orphan art project

Art work is a great way of connecting with people! The Sunflower club uses art a great deal, especially with orphanage "graduates" who have young children.  This summer the orphanage leavers Sunflower supports took part in a public exhibition.  What a confidence boost to all involved!

We need to continue boosting their confidence, developing their creativity and helping them connect with people around them so that they can have successful adult lives.

Your donation can help us do even more of this if you donate on Wednesday 19th October.  On October 19, is matching at 30% all online donations up to $1,000 per donor per project!  There is $100,000 available in matching funds starting at 12:01 am EDT. They will match until 11:59pm EDT or until matching funds run out.

Will you give teenagers a helping hand as they leave St Petersburg orphanages?
