About Program

This is an exciting opportunity to volunteer in a children's community in Kaluga Region, Russia. Kitezh Children's Community is a rural village community of foster parents and teachers who take children from orphanages and raise them with their own children. The purpose of the community is focussed entirely on being a child-centric, therapeutic education community.
All volunteers get to live with a family in the family's house as well as teach English to children and take part in the daily working and social life of the community. Some of these activities include gardening, cooking, building, playing games, art & crafts, music, drama, sport with the kids. Perhaps you have a particular skill that might be of benefit to the community (not a requirement)?
This is a wonderful opportunity to experience real Russian culture and make a difference to the lives of children who had a bad start in life.

Consider your impact: Volunteering abroad can be a rewarding experience for both volunteers and local communities, and at Go Overseas, we believe all volunteers should have the resources to make informed decisions about the type of volunteer project they want to partake in. However, despite best intentions, some organizations offering placements in orphanages may unknowingly place children in danger. You can read about the potential dangers of orphanage volunteering here.

Great time in Orion

It’s a great time for my team to stay in Orion. There were different activities and service arranged for us to do which were also something that we have never done and seen in Hong Kong. And it is so great to spend a time with roster families, singing song together, dancing and playing with each other’s. Those were the precious moments! And the place is stunning! We did even see a double rainbow there which we have never seen in Hong Kong! That day was the best day in our trip! We do like to encourage people in Hong Kong or other countries to take time to mak a visit in Orion. It is believed that they would have a great time and experiences and also widening their horizons, having some unforgettable memories with their friends. We are so thankful to have this chance
