  5. Ukraine "Keep It Clean"

    "Keep It Clean" is an environmental campaign that may be familiar to many volunteers.  Kosiv students embraced the day.  This girl even embroidered the logo on her pants.

  7. Ukraine Baseball-Ukrainian Style

    Kids at my school wanted to learn to play baseball.  We had some equipment, but not nearly enough.  So, a friend, who works at Yahoo!, asked his team if they could spend a bonus on baseball gear--they agreed!  We ended up with enough equipment to have a "baseball camp."  I don't know anything about baseball, so volunteers who do came and did a week long baseball training camp--it was so much fun!  There were kids from about 6 or 7 years old to 18 all playing and learning together.  The kids w...

    The Department of Education is responsible for classroom observations. Four times a year we are supposed to go sit in on a few classes at each of the seven schools; six elementary and one secondary school.
