Progress of new Carer at Kalinovka

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

The new carer started working with our 47 boys and men in the Autumn. Her name is Sophia and both Clare and I have met her, myself several times. She is just lovely; always laughing and joking, kind and attentive to her pupils. She is just one of ‘those’ people that seems to have abounding energy and always able to see the funny side. In our opinion a perfect Teacher/Mentor/Friend for our men & boys.

We enjoy so much to read her monthly reports which contain the names of the men, how many hours they have spent in class and a summary of their activities. Here is a direct translation of the report for Igor:

Maramygin Igor
46 hours
Football, crafts, paper, gofrobumagi, checkers, writing in a notebook, the study of the New Year poems and crafts out of paper for the new year

Here is a picture of Sophia with the men and further pictures of their activities;

Thank you for your continued support with this class which would not exist without FYP donations and your standing orders!

Here are some of the latest pictures and films of Natasha’s Class in Kalinovka, Ukraine. These 47 men had no one to teach them until FYP sponsored Natasha. She is now kept going by our supporters generous monthly donations and also other fundraising activities.

Natasha, with our help, has changed these men’s lives immeasurably. Well done Natasha!

Natasha told us the men need socks and plastic cups (not throw away sort). If anyone would like to send us some please send them to :

FYP, 47 Duncan Road, Ramsgate, Kent, CT119QH

Assault Course Challenge – Well done the FYP Rainbow Warriors!

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

On Saturday 4th October 18 FYP supporters took part in a grueling assault course up against some serious physical obstacles! With varying levels of fitness within the Rainbow Warriors team we decided that dressing up would make up for potential lack of speed – we definitely won the “Funniest Time” if not the “Fastest Time” of the day!

A huge thank you to those that took part and to those of you that kindly donated sponsorship money. Without people as generous and energetic as you FYP simply could not exist!

THANK YOU!

Romania 2014

This entry was posted in Uncategorized on by .

It was with great sadness that we decided we could not risk the welfare of our volunteers by visiting the group of disabled people we support in Ukraine this year. The war there does not currently affect the area where Kalinovka (Institute for the Disabled) is, but traveling to Ukraine seemed just too foolhardy, even for us.

Determined to continue to take FYP’s unique blend of fun & aid to those in need, at the last minute we set off for Bacau in Romania instead. The volunteers pulled out all the stops this year to create ‘fun days’ for children in Bacau and in a very poor and remote rural area called Podu Turcului. We worked with Fundatia de Sprijin Comunitar, a Bacau based charity who provides care, education and fun for children who lack all three. We worked with street children, isolated village children and Roma children.

Here are some photos of our latest journey :
