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!!!

The social services came to the “Republic Pilgrim” for help. They asked to take into the center a 13-year-old boy temporarily, for the time of his medical examination. Afterwards the boy was to be taken to a special boarding school for kids with mental flaws. But did the boy really need to be in such a boarding school?

The trip around the world for the sake of the world without orphans. This was the motto of the team of the former Mariupol street kids riding across the entire Ukraine, Russia and Europe within the last 5 summer seasons. The former street kids show by their own example how life of a child can change if he or she is taken to a loving family and they call unto people not to be scared of adoption and to take kids from orphanages.

On July 16th the group of the former street kids and of their adoptive parents from Ukraine continued their worldwide bike tour “The World without orphans” with the vision about the world where there are no lonely children. Having ridden within the last 5 stages across the entire Ukraine, Russia and a part of Europe, the former street kids show by their own example how a life of an abandoned kid may change when he or she is taken to a loving family and they plead on behalf of other kids who need caring parents. This year the team will complete the fifth stage of the worldwide bike action across the Eurasian continent, on riding across Germany, Switzerland and France.

As the medical workers point out all the kids in Pilgrim have weak immunity, avitaminosis and consequences of unhealthy life. Summer is just high time for the guys to get the energy charge, vitamins, to get impressions and to get strength for the new academic year.

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.
