Overall Rating:/ 10The experience was fantastic!!
Adapting to the children's schedule the work routine was a bit disconcerting at first. Once I got into the swing of things, I was treated to a daily dose of friendship, love and accomplishment. The children were very accommodating, kind and loving. I definitely had a disadvantage in not being able to speak the language. The children have so much to say and express. Despite the language obstacle together we made it work. These children wanted to learn anything that was western especially Language. Crafts of any kind are a great way to interact socially while keeping their hands busy. Bring lots!
Alex my local volunteer coordinator and his family are very sincere and were really helpful, showing me around town and translating for me. My host family lady is a very friendly and caring person and a great cook.
I would recommend Love Volunteers and their partner in Ukraine to anyone who would like to help children and experience another culture.
