Tanya Lishchinska

Activities Coordinator


I was born and have lived in Ivano-Frankivsk all my life. I am the co-founder and coordinator of the Day Center. I love creativity, music and the Holy Bible. What I enjoy about working at the Day Center is that I can help children and families overcome difficulties. At work, I never stand still, I am constantly evolving and learning to better understand children and love them even more.

After 9th grade, I  began studying preschool pedagogy and teaching a foreign language to children. Working with children is my specialty, and children in Nazareth are simply unique. I have the great honor and joy to be a part of this wonderful social project.
