Thanks to your kind donations our programme to support teenagers soon to leave orphanages in St Petersburg starts this month. We will bring you news of how that is going once the sessions to prepare the teenagers for independent life have got going.

In the meantime we bring you pictures from this summer’s trip, a three-day hike through the Russian forest for teenage orphans, parents who grew up in orphanages and their children, and volunteer families from St Petersburg.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the teenagers to experiences family life, often for the first time, to become more determined and able to solve problems, and to make friends outside the orphanage who can help support them when they leave. If we meet our target, we’ll be able to ensure that a hike takes place in 2011 to crown our support through the school year.
