Today, almost 106,000 Ukrainian children live in residential institutions, 92% of whom have no hope of adoption or guardianship. The One Hope mentoring program seeks to support these children in their spiritual, relational and emotional development, and has to date provided almost 1,500 institutionalised kids with life-changing relational support. At the heart of One Hope is the belief that institutionalised children don’t need gifts or toys as much as they need meaningful relationships. As such, each One Hope mentor cares for one child, whom they visit at least once per week. Our mentors are professionally trained to nurture young lives into a healthy maturity. After working with the Ombudsman for …., we were able to pass a bill of Parliament that has legitimised mentoring at a government level, ensuring the ongoing effectiveness of this life-changing project.
