Last Bell

In Ukraine, many children in state care still grow up in orphanages, isolated from their culture. When they graduate, teenage orphans are alone in a bewildering world, with minimal life skills and no one to love or support them.

In the city of Zhytomyr, two hours west of Kyiv, Last Bell meets these young people in their deep need. Building on a foundation of long-term mentorship and love, we offer orphanage graduates practical help with education, vocation, housing, relationships, and raising children. In everything we share the love of Jesus. As a result of Last Bell’s intervention, our young men and women are thriving and ending the generational orphan cycle.
