The visa free regime works even for former street kids!
At this time last year my guys experienced a serious shock (I have 32 adopted kids). When we approached the Polish border within our worldwide bike action “The World without orphans!” the passports of the half of the team arrived without visas in them. It was a knockdown.
We understood why they refused to give them visa. My guys who grew up on street don’t have estate, bank accounts, wives, children and cool working places. But still it was not easy to handle this “bureaucratic crook in the lot”. Before that the boys crossed on their bikes the entire Ukraine and Russia from Vladivostok with the call to adoption. They surely dreamt about the European stages.
Thus, last year only a half of the team could continue the worldwide bike tour. We crossed 10 more countries, through Poland, the Baltic countries, Scandinavia and entered Germany.
Tonight on our way to Europe the team was worrying a lot. Will the visa free regime work for all the guys or a part of them won’t be able to be with us in the journey for reasons mentioned above. But our fears were vain!!! The entire team (27 people) crossed the border!!! The visa free regime works even for the former street kids!!!)))
Thus we are heading towards our dream about “The world without orphans!” We encourage people to adopt children, to empty orphanages and to take children into families!
We have 20000 km behind us, 11 countries and hundreds of orphans who were taken to families by those who heard us… We will add 2500 km to the distance in one month and three more states… we will cross through Germany, Switzerland and France. There is Bavaria, the Alps, Paris and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean ahead of us. Wish good luck to us in the worldwide bike action of the former street kids!!!

In Summer 2017 the group of the former orphans and their adoptive parents from Ukraine will continue their worldwide bike tour “The World without orphans!” with the vision about the world where there are no lonely kids. Having ridden through the entire Ukraine, Russia and a part of Europe for the last 5 years the former street kids show by their own example how life of an abandoned kid can change after he or she was taken to a loving family. They also call unto people on behalf of those kids who need caring parents. This year the team is going to complete the fifth stage of the worldwide bike action on the Eurasian continent crossing Germany, Switzerland and France.

In the “Republic Pilgrim” it is a special day even though a bit sad one – the Graduation 2017. It is always time of special experiences and a very significant event for the graduates. Each one of them has a very rough story behind them, their life used to be destroyed; they used to have a mental trauma and a tough way of restoration.

The major part of the rehab program of “Republic Pilgrim’ is the work education of the teenagers and for this very reason the Center of work education was organized in the Pilgrim village. This small farm supplies them with some products and gives them some skills of agricultural works.

The project «Bringing the gift of Good» was initiated by the children and has been carried out in “Republic Pilgrim”. The purpose of the project is to teach the kids to live not only for themselves but for others too, to share their talents, skills and gifts. Since the beginning of this year the pilgrims have already held an event in the center for kids with special needs, they brought them gifts and made a show – the fairy tale” The Red Hot in Paris”
