People 2 People was founded in the spring of 2020 amidst the Covid 19 pandemic by Lydia Prilutskiy, Sana Simonenko, and Firuza Savchenko. Each of us has been impacted by the topic of adoption either because we ourselves were raised by people other than biological parents, or we have adopted children into our own families. We want to dedicate our lives’ work to eradicating orphanhood and enabling older orphans enter the adulthood prepared, confident, and independent.
