My name is Anna, and I’m the head of “Master Dreams” Studio. Unfortunately, there are many social problems in our country. Still, I try to solve two of them – I contribute a part of my profit to young people with mental disabilities, who are seen as a low priority by government agencies and make jars from recycled glass for my tea shop. Visitors to the studio (11 for now) learn everyday skills, engage in creativity, go on excursions and hold their events together with assistants and volunteers. And, of course, they make tea. The sales allow us to be independent from sponsors and contribute to the development of the country. Now we are going to scale up.
