Another business direction of the gallery is the Children's art-studio
The goal of the teachers in the children’s' studio is not the preparation of professional artists. They don’t impose pupils some esthetically beautiful canons. Primary task of the artistic education is to develop sleeping potential creative capabilities, hidden in every child since his birth, despite that these capabilities will develop also when a child will begin developing.

Something like a slogan:
Our masters are always sober! Our masters work in cleanness! The best professionals are working for us! We work quickly! We are polite and adequate!
As says the company’s website, their goal is to bring the shoes repair at the qualitatively new level. The idea is to make the shoe repairing point that differs from the regular ones we have in Ukraine, as they are usually dirty kiosk-style ones and the shoemakers are mostly drunkards with dirty hands, smoking cigarettes while touching your precious favorite shoes. And they can also be rude. At least, that’s what I’ve seen mostly. You enter a nice light office with the reception counter, where a smiling girl takes your order and serve you coffee while you wait. Or you can (and that’s probably the first time I’ve seen such thing) make an online order and the workers of the company will call you and schedule the convenient time to pick up and deliver your order.
What I like about it is the freshness of the idea. The shoe repair service is usually a thing that we don’t notice until a heal break or something like that. That’s why they’re so Soviet-style in Kyiv. Though, it sounds ridiculous at first, the idea is brilliant in its simplicity. Just attract the clients with the perfect service and they’ll come back, whenever the prices are higher. And it actually feels nice to come there.

The International Headquarters is situated on Murgwi Estate, Shamva in Zimbabwe, 85 km outside of the capital Harare, in a rural setting.
a network of second hand shops. The first one opened in 2003, and now there are
36 of them around Kyiv, and also several in Odessa,
Dnipropetrovsk. But this is not a Ukrainian network as we tend to understand it.
It is only a small part of a global international organization which uses SH-business AS
A MEANS to earn money not just for the owners profit but to finance humanitarian
Humana People to People – along with donations – earns money by collecting, recycling and selling out second hand clothes. Tens of thousands of clothes collection bins are placed in shopping centers, parking lots and residential areas in Europe and North America in collaboration with municipalities and private entities, giving people the opportunity to donate their used clothes.
Having this money Humana develops
more than 330 development projects in operation in the beginning of 2010. These
are the projects within Education, Agriculture and Rural Development, the Fight
against AIDS, Community Development, Environment and Economic Development.
They involve 11.5 million people and have 8.300 employees in 10 countries in Africa, 3 countries in Asia, and 3 countries in Latin America.
As a second hand business it differs a lot from the SH markets in Ukraine. First of all this is a network of a SHOPS that work legally but not open-air markets. Clothes is presented as in a usual shop, it’s clean and ironed and arranged by the type but not stuffed in a stinky messy pile as it is usual for markets, ant there are 2-3 assistants and a manager to help clients.
Prices here are FIXED, you can’t haggle, and it is not cheap at all. At least comparing it to the prices in SH-markets: there you can buy a dress for approximately 10-20hrn (2-2,5$), but in a HUMANA shop prices vary from 50 for a T-short to 100hrn (6,5-12,5$) for a dress.
prices are defined on labels saying “HUMANA”, which is another proof for the
customers that the business is legal (which we are not that sure for the SH
markets as in Ukraine importing smth as SH is a well known way to import
contraband into the country). And finally when buying smth in HUMANA shop you
get a check – they have legal accounting, which would be a complete nonsense for
the SH market traders.

Name of director: Larysa Jurijivna Kopan’
Adress: Ukraine, 04071, Kyiv–71, Mezhygirska Str., 7/16 «D» (subway station «Kontractova ploscha»)
Description: This is one of the few publishing houses in Kyiv which publishes only books in Ukrainian. These are books of Ukrainian writers, Ukrainian versions of worldwide known treatises and also monographs and textbooks. For me the most remarkable thing about this company is a wide range of printing services, which it provides. Here you can print documents and photos, or even make a luminescent print on your T-shirt. As well, this is a good place to bind a diploma cheaply. Also I would add that local worker Taras sometimes treats regular comers with sweets and that is very nice.
