First wave (25 th November – 16 th January) OCP of this project Olya Cilyk won the campaign “The best  of ICX project”, because she did beautiful project with 11  interns from different countries Misha (Georgia), Ivan  (Colombia), Kenneth (Singapore), Adam and Sarah (China),  Peter (Egypt), Rosen (Bulgaria), Tien (Vietnam) and guys  Brazil – Nina, Eliza, Yuri. During their internship local  conference “TtT” (Trainer the Trainee) was held, meeting of  interns with our EB, session “Emotional intelligence” by  Misha Tsaguria (a lot of girls were present and our dear  matching coordinator – Sergei Gromovoi).


On 23 rd of January the 2 nd wave of the World Without Borders project started …

So what about the second wave?



-We asked OCP, Sasha Sikorska : What was the main idea of the 2 nd WWB? ­The main   idea   of   the   project   was   that   foreign   volunteers   were   delivering   trainings   for   Ukrainian   school  students on the leadership, project management, time management topics, discussions on cultural and social  topics.

-Who participaed? ­Eight schools   have   taken   part   in   the   project,   i.e.   #296,  28,   128,  gymnasium   “Erudit”,  “Vsesvit”, “Scandinavian gymnasium”, “European college” and Boryspil gymnasium “Perspectiva”. In general,  about 250 students were listening to trainings from volunteers. The trainers for the project came from all the  parts of the world. And they are: curly Sera from Turkey, dancing Caio from Brasil, smily Kivanc from Turkey,  childish Andrej from Slovakia, David that solves Sudoku from Brasil, Indah – a girl with a Chinese blood, born  in Indonesia and lives in Australia, Bingxi that came here just for two weeks but for great changes from China,   curios Min from Malaysia and probably the kindest person in the world – Ahmed from Egypt. The project   lasted   for   6   weeks   and   every   single   day   of   these   6   weeks   were   amazing,   changeable,   unforgettable   for  organizational committee and interns as well as for students. 

-Was it worth it?) ­As for now the project is over and the interns have left home. But thanks to interns, the students, that have  taken part in the project, learnt a lot, opened new cultures and traditions, made new friends. The best thank for  me, as an organizational committee president, were the following words from Valeria, 9th grade student, school  #296: “As it is said, THIS IS IT! Tomorrow is the first day without our interns( but we really want it to last  forever. How everything started! Nervous teachers, our trembling hands and smiles to the ears. It was really  cool!”

-How was it to be an OCP of this project? ­In the end I would love to say that being the OCP is really hard, sometimes it just exhausts you. BUT, exactly  this   experience,   when   you   are   responsible   not   only   for   realization   of   the   project   but,   what   is   even   more  important, for the people (interns, OC of the project, students) makes a person braver and teaches the life. So  don’t be afraid of changes, organize, create and everything will be amazing and unforgettable! 

Children's Path is an educational and entertainment project for children from  orphanages.The project was conducted by five interns ­ Kostantinos (Greese),  Karanveer   (India),   Prinka   (Indonesia),  Ivan (Serbia), Guilherme (Brasil), Su (South  Korea) during December­January. Each lesson  they made together  with the children  virtual  trips around Ukraine. While "travelling" they  played   exciting   games,   developed   their  communicative   skills   and   made   their   first  7

steps in   learning   English.     "Children's   Path"   is   a   project   that   gives   joy   and  motivation to those who really need it. It's all about love, it's all about friendship, it'  s all about hope!

Nastya Dubchak, OCP of Children's Path: “Now, when 1 month has passed since the project came to its end and my interns left I wouldn't  say that "Children's Path" was a part of my life. I wouldn't say it because of one simple reason:   the project was MY LIFE. My children, my OC, my interns ­ it is how I'll forever remember  the   winter   2011­2012.   I think I wasn't able to express my feelings before and I  think I didn't tell my interns that I love them. And I'm  right now listening to Pink's song "...I forgot to say out  loud how beautiful you really are to me". Well, I know,  this song is about love and relationship and so on. But  what I want to say is that I forgot to say out loud how  important you are to me, and that you are heroes in a  very   special   way,   and   that   you   changed   me   and   you  changed hundreds of people you met here, in Ukraine.  Thank you, friends.”
