If you have made another person on this earth smile,
your life has been worthwhile.
-Sr. Mary Christelle Macaluso 
Feed the Mind - Mykolaivka

The orphanage libraries are bleak with empty shelves and few books. The children who want to read have few choices available to them. An Orphan Smiles is hoping to change the bare state of the orphanage library. A plentiful supply of interesting books in the orphanage library will alleviate the boredom, increase knowledge, and empower the children for the rest of their lives.

On a recent trip to Ukraine our volunteers had the good fortune to meet Victor, a book seller based in Ukraine. Victor, on behalf of An Orphan Smiles, will coordinate with the orphanage librarians and jointly create a list of desired and needed books. Victor will arrange shipment of the books to the orphanage and will provide photos of our purchased books for each order.

Please consider donating to this wonderful project and help us create a library for the students rich in fun and learning.

Project Feed the Mind - Books for Mykolaivka

We are collecting funds to supply the Mykolaivka Internat library with books. Our goal is to collect $3000. This amount will fill the library shelves with approximately 400 books. We are purchasing books in increments of $500 and have already placed over 250 books on the shelves. Please help us complete this extremely worthwhile project.
