About Project

Problem: What problem is this project trying to address?

One of the biggest problems for kids from orphanage in Russia is to find a place to live. The government usually provides homes for the kids after 18 years old, but it s is not always the case. Sometimes, they have to wait years before they get their home.

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Potentially, This problem can be solved by teaching them how to build a house. Throughout this process, young men and women from orphanages will develop a wide range of skills in house building, trail building, guide skills, as well as socialization and communication. That will give them a good foundation for success in life. Project has at least two innovations - application of Eco materials in building houses. Suchlike cordwood, solar panels, heat pumps, etc. - children from orphanages and international volunteers participation - organizing of professional courses with artisans and craftsmen - using recycled plastic and Wooden waste in trail building

Sustainability

Financial Sustainability Plan: What is this solution’s plan to ensure financial sustainability?

There is two region support program. The project needs land and materials, that programs can provide with. But we do need machines and transportation.

Marketplace: Who else is addressing the problem outlined here? How does the proposed project differ from these approaches?

Many profit and non-profit and goverment do gifting to orphan shelters. But! it's not a solution! Kids are thinking that things that they get don't have any value. It makes a habit to posses. No one project can help, but Orphans Green Vilage
