My Travel Story

by: Nataliia, Alex, Kateryna Isakova Start Date: May 20, 2017 - End Date: Aug 17, 2017
We are Natalia, Alex and our daughter Katerina. For years we are volunteers of the red cross.
We have taken part in many programs to help children. We have a pedagogical education and extensive experience working with children.
We love children very much and we like taking care of children. That is why we want to participate in a volunteer program “Volunteering on a Care project in Fiji”.
We and our daughter would like assisting with caring for children in need of support at orphanages, day cares, kindergarten.
As a volunteers in a Kindergarten or Care Center, we’ll be providing emotional and educational support to underprivileged children in Fiji. We want help to run fun educational activities such as art classes, English lessons, mathematics
and games, singing and dancing, sports, and more.
The class sizes are large at the kindergartens so it’s difficult for local staff to give each child as much attention as they need. We working there will be able to provide a helping hand by looking after and caring for the children.
As a volunteer in an orphanage in Fiji, we’ll be helping children to learn life-skills that parents would normally teach. 
This can be an exhilarating experience. We are preparing to share our attention with many children!
Volunteering with children in an orphanage can be an amazing and life-changing experience.
People are often unaware of the impact they can have on another person's life, with even the smallest gesture.
As this is an unpaid volunteer placement, we will need to fund everything (the program fees, flights, visas, jabs and insurance).
Any contribution would be immensely appreciated!
