A happy day, July 5, 2013 as our scholarship recipient Gabriella Schvets (red arrow) of Vinogradov, Ukraine receives her diploma for completing her technical school studies courses to become a dental technician. She is shown with her other classmates. We are so thrilled what this young lady has done as she has been one of the kids of our street children program in Vinogradov,

Gabriella writes to us:

Dear Victor and Beverly,

I have just finished my studies.  On Friday, July 6 I will receive my diploma.  Thank you so much for giving me such an opportunity to get an education. Next Monday I’ll be looking for work (dental technician) now that I have my diploma.  When I find work, I’ll send you a picture.  May God bless you. Thank you and love from Gabi.

Here's a scholarship recipient that we are particularly pleased with.  Gabriella was part of our Street Children program in Vinogradov.  Her entire future has changed as a result of her ambition and receiving a LifeNets scholarship grant.  On April 25, 2012, she sent us several photos of her studying to become a dental technician and one who is able to make dental prosthetics, as they call them. 

She writes:
