WOW, what a name for a project in Siberia, Windows of Warmth. This project was not your typical one, but one that was rather large for us. We partnered with the local Music/Art school to remodel the front of their school. The work consisted of replacing the old style windows, many of which were broken, with new three-pane European windows, insulating the front of the building and installing new metal siding (WOW donations were not used for the purchase of siding/insulation with this project, those funds came from another source). This particular school has over 150 students enrolled in its various programs ranging from piano, art and dance lessons to traditional classes on making Buryat clothing. This was a VERY visible project for our team in the village. The school is located in the center of town directly across from the library and next door to one of the local clinics. Please enjoy the pictures and thank you for making this project possible with the many donations that have come in for WOW.

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat. ~Author Unknown
