Not that anything has really changed from before, but we have spun off "the trade school" from New Hope Center. They will continue to work with orphans in Zaporozhye, but the project in the village now has its own registered Ukrainian humanitarian organization with the name of Hope for Each in English.
Victor was trying to get it registered at an office in Dnepropetrovsk and tried several different names with the word hope in but all were used, so he asked what wasn't and they suggested Hope for Each... we have an official name in Ukrainian and Russian too, but I can't remember them. Our mission statement is about changing the lives of orphans who are in need of... I can't think of the translation, but something like whose lives need renewal or restoration? through farm work and learning.
I was trying to design a logo, since Maria needs to get more posters printed for the advertising for students for next year. Garry suggested a life saver.
