What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

1. Obtain 100% funding for care of orphaned and vulnerable children from Ukrainian sources. 2. Supply wrap-around care to Ukrainian state-run orphanages. 3. Ensure towns have a vulnerable child care center for after school care and on weekends. 4. Create post-orphanage system of care for children without families.

Part-time staff and volunteers working in country to ensure program needs are being met.

Staff is educated and able to meet organization's goals. They receive additional training on a regular basis. Top leadership has been recently awarded college scholarships to pursue degrees.

1. Ukrainian fundraising efforts are monitored. 2. Staff is monitored. 3. Program is able to expand at a slow, steady rate. 4. Number of children/families served is monitored.

Since creation, we were able to add the "Island of Hope" Orphan Prevention Center in Yuzhny, Ukraine. We have continued Zhovten orphanage wrap-around visits. These services have expanded to leaving no child behind during holidays - every child has a home to visit during holidays. Post-orphanage care for high school graduates without family to care for them is next.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
