All proceeds raised by the auction and ball are used by our ongoing programs: daily art classes for children and youth from orphanages, summer and winter art - rehabilitation camps. Thanks to your support we help orphanage graduates, arrange humanitarian trips to Beslan, do wall-painting in children homes and hospitals. Each year we prepare a performance and present it at the Shakespeare Festival in Stratford-upon-Avon. Besides, we launched a completely new programme "Art-Village" on the Volga river which gives an opportunity for children-orphans from Moscow, Moscow region, and cities Kalyazin, Uglich, Rybinsk, Yaroslavl, Vologda find themselves in a loving family atmosphere, get a feel for an everyday life of the countryside, explore history and traditions of the village Uchma.
