Several reasons to become a volunteer and come to PERSPEKTIVY

  • *spend a year (or several months) meaningfully, to become a friend to our wards;

    1. *make new friends, learn Russian, eat blini (pancakes) and pies, learn how to cook borsch (beetroot soup), loose (or gain) weight, fall in love, give up, fall in love again, stop planning, travel by Trans-Siberian railway though out whole Russia, and then time comes to say goodbye and go back home, taking tons of wonderful memories back with you;

    • *make decisions for the future – where to go to study, what profession to choose, in what country to live;

    • *live and travel in the country of bears, snow and balalaikas. Understand, that Russia is a civilized country. Visit Pskov, Velikiy Novgorod, Vyborg, Moscow;

    • *feel the spirit of Russian culture and find out that although outside it could be dark and gloomy, inside we are friendly and warm hearted people.
