Program Highlights:

Volunteer in Kitezh Children's Community in Kaluga Region, Russia, a rural village community of foster parents and teachers who take children from orphanages and raise and educate them along with their own children. Kitezh is an entirely child-centred, therapeutic education community. On 100 hectares of land it has a number of wooden houses, a school, a church and a farm, with natural woodlands and a lake nearby. Volunteers live with a family, teach English to children and take part in the daily working and social life of the community: gardening, cooking, building, playing games, art & crafts, music, drama, sport with the kids. A wonderful opportunity to experience real Russian culture and make a difference to the lives of children who had a bad start in life. Excellent Russian Language practice although a knowledge of Russian is not essential.
