Youth Learn to Pray

We're giving a special thanks to God for the winter Christian camp geared for graduates of boarding schools and students from dysfunctional families. On January 9-16, a Christian camp was hosted by Second Presbyterian Church of Memphis (USA), and IPO Hope to People. The camp took place in the village of Polyana, Transcarpathian region. This time, God blessed us to meditate on the topic from the book of Psalms: “What Do My Prayers Speak About?”

Thanksgiving Day for Children with Visual Impairments in the Klevan's Boarding School

All that is given by God
We manage to put in the basket
God teaches us to be generous folks
And always share with the others!

In fact, these very words became the motif to the musical performance “The Fairy Tale of the Red Apple,” which took place on October 25, 2018, in the institution “Klevansk Specialized Boarding School #1 І-ІІІ degrees” of the Rivne Regional Council.

Help to the children from the orphanages

IPO “Hope to People” is participating in social and educational work, which aims to help the orphanage children in the Rivne region. This includes Bible lessons, organization of different celebration events, distribution of humanitarian help, cooperation to provide medical help, financial support of further education of orphanage graduates, and camps during school breaks.

Such a work is being conducted regularly in two orphanages: Klevan orphanage for children with sight defects (since 2000) and Mizoch orphanage for children with speech defects (since 2001).

01Ruslana Kovalchuk is teaching the subject “Christian ethics” for 3-6th grades in Klevan orphanage every Tuesday and Thursday (program approved by the Ministry of Education of Ukraine). The orphanage has a classroom for Christian ethics, which has nice posters, materials for classes, and literature, which not only students, but teachers can take to read. Since 2010, the group of Christians from Rivne has been visiting the orphanage every Sunday to give Bible lessons, which are open for all interested, both children and teacheers.


Jura Bondarchuk is sharing the Gospel with children in  Mizoch orphanage and Mizoch gymnasium through sports ministry. In 2009, the Christian soccer club “Stream” was organized. More than 30 children participate in it.



The center of social adaptation for orphanage graduates has been created in Zdolbuniv. Currently, Bondarchuk’s family is caring for 11 boys.

Members of many Christian churches are participating together with mission workers at the social ministry. Foreign brothers and sister provide a big help, particularly the Second Presbyterian Church from Memphis and their representatives John and Marilyn Whittemore.(Click here to see their presentation of the ministry)

  2. 2.Teaching them to protect their hearts
  3. 3.Teaching them to listen to their mentors
  4. 4.Teaching them to wisely choose their friends
