One girl rescued from the street— KATJA
Since 2005, World Hope International (Canada) has run Hope House, a program in Odessa, Ukraine, which offers a home for girls who have aged out of orphanages or who are living on the streets. These girls can stay at Hope House for as long as they are in school. Once they graduate from post-secondary education, they graduate from Hope House. REVIVE ALEXANDRIA supports ‘Katya’ at Hope House 1 as she gains her education and lives in a family-like, secure environment.

The First Step Center (FSC) was launched in 2002 as a safe space for children to come during the day. Most of the children who visit the FSC live on the street or come from abusive homes and are typically between the ages of 5-12 years old.
Children who come through are able to receive hygiene care, including haircuts for lice, toothbrushes, showers, and clean clothes. They also receive nutritious meals when they are at the Centre and can engage with one another and staff in crafts and games.
REVIVE ALEXANDRIA supports the operation of the First Steps Centre on a yearly basis.
