Pavlovo Farm Home
This home (shown here on right) provides opportunities for young women who often graduated from area orphanages or boarding schools. They are given a safe & nurturing environment on a farm setting in which to learn and develop talents and marketable skills. They learn how to manage money, apply for a job, grow crops and take care of animals, and gain friendships.

Current Update, October 2020: A new girl has arrived to stay at Pavlovo. Like the others, some of the funds allocated will go to help with dental work for these young women at the Farm. Pavlovo has been one of the hardest hit programs as they do not receive government funding. Katherine Bizilia, the first Uzhhorod Sister Cities Association President and an English teacher in Uzhhorod, invited members of her Zonta Club to visit Pavlovo. They took flour, oil, blankets, bedding and other needed items for the home and the girls. They also shared the “No Violence Against Women” with the Pavlovo young women. One Zonta club member is the head of the Red Cross in Uzhhorod and she sent clothing to the girls. Thank you, Zonta Club! Here are photos of this visit:
