    Let's have fun!

    We again visited the guys at the social rehabilitation center "Parus Nadezhdy", and they learned that November 19 is the International Men's Day . All together they named the qualities they value in boys, and after that they actively played outdoor games.

    Older brother, older sister

    On a warm sunny day, October,25, volunteers of "Ruki Pomoschi" came to visit the children at the center "Parus Nadezhdy". They had an active walk, where all together danced, ran and just had fun. In the end, all the children received sweet gifts and remained in a good mood.

    Heart breath

    On this sunny day, 20 of October, we visited the Children's Tuberculosis Hospital in Sadgorod! Our volunteers recruited a special squad "Arishki". To get into it, the guys had to show all their skills, namely: build a base from the available resources at hand, show their endurance by jumping and running at speed!


    In common language

    On November 12 the guys from the boarding school for hearing impaired and deaf children again visited the LEGO Center for the "Funny Little Men" master class, where they used the LEGO constructor to build little people with different emotions. And in the end, each kid "built" himself and the mood with which he arrived at the LEGO center.

    English corner

    On the 6 of November our volunteers introduced the children to the topic of food, learned the names of some dishes, ingredients and tastes. Also young fans of the English language knew more about some professions, learned new words on this topic and got acquainted with a useful and interesting world - the world of vegetables!
    On November 13 and 14 in the libraries of the city, the children knew and learned to distinguish the modes of transport, learned the English names of parts of the face and emotions that can be shown, and described and guessed fruits while playing Crocodile game.
    The guys do not stop learning English in the libraries of the city, and the volunteers of our partnership help them with this! On November 20 and 21, they played board games, played "rock-paper-scissors" in English, and guessed the games the teachers showed them. And they also plunged into the world of fashion: they learned what clothes and accessories are in English. To consolidate new words, they answered questions on a given topic.

    Happy English

    A game lesson in English was held in the regional children's tuberculosis hospital on October, 23. The guys studied English words related to autumn and nature. They also had fun, played with a ball, drew with crayons on the asphalt, and at the end of the lesson took pictures with volunteers.

    Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as ever you can.
