Russian School Near Vladivostok in Need of School Supplies
Popov Island is near Vladivostok, in the Primorskii Krai Region of Russia's Far East. There are 2,500 residents on the island. Only about three hundred people are employed, the others have no jobs. Lots of people are retired or unable to work due to sickness. Many families have to live on their grandparents' pension, which is too small, only about 1,400 roubles a month (about US$40).
There is only one school on the entire island with about two hundred students in it. I visited this school on Earth Day this year (April 21) and discovered that most children have no English books in their school and no other supplies needed for their classroom and their studies. The address of the school is: School Number 29, 9 Podgornaya Street, Vladivostok 690901 Popov Island, Russia.
If anyone would like to donate school supplies or books for the children on this island, the donation will be recognized and much appreciated.
