    The school holidays for schoolchildren are over, which means that our volunteers are ready to continue teaching English to children in the libraries of the city! On January 22 and 23, the children got acquainted with the topic of computer games in English: they replenished their vocabulary and found out which games are the most popular. In the meantime, 5 cool guys talked about colors in English: they learned the words "green", "black", "white", "yellow" and many others.


    On this frosty day, the volunteers again visited our beloved children at the Center for the Rehabilitation and Prevention of Respiratory Diseases: the guys went on a trip to Mount Fuji, conquered space on a rocket, went fishing in the Sea of ​​Galilee and even tried on the role of a beekeeper!


    Our cool volunteers resumed trips to the children's tuberculosis hospital in Sadgorod with interesting contests and outdoor games. The guys, along with the volunteers, learned a lot of new TikTok trends, warmed up well, ran and hugged. And, of course, a sweet prize for everyone at the end!


    The end of December turned out to be very eventful, but it was pleasant chores - our volunteers held 6 New Year's parties for our "wards" in the Parus Nadezhdy rehabilitation center, for hearing impaired and visually impaired children, in a correctional school, a children's tuberculosis hospital and for the first time visited correctional school No. 1 on Lazo. All the holidays were very cheerful and energetic, and, of course, everyone received New Year's gifts from the real Uncle Frost and Snegurochka.
