Aiding refugees and children in Poland

Supporting: Volunteer Service for Children Worldwide for Global Volunteers



We will be traveling to Siedice, Poland with Global Volunteers on May 7 for two weeks.

Since 1990, Global Volunteers has offered English education to Polish youth.  Now, it has been asked to offer some respite for Ukrainian families who have fled their homes.  Psychological stress on Ukrainian families is enormous as children worry about family members left at home and moms worry about their children, all the while trying to find work.  Global Volunteers will host special evening meals, music, fun, games, and relaxation for weary families.  In some days,  volunteers will accompany Ukrainian children and adults in day trips to the Warsaw Zoo and Museum.

Global Volunteers' mission is to connect people worldwide to wage peace and promote justice through service. Our goal is to sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their communities, so they can realize the full promise of their human potential.  Each Global Volunteer plays a significant role in positively impacting the people they serve and the communities they visit

Working on teams of up to 20 individuals, volunteers participate in one-to-three-week service opportunities where they create, nurture and sustain the well-being of the world’s children and their families.  Volunteers are welcomed into homes, classrooms, clinics, community centers, hospitals, orphanages, childcare centers, libraries, government offices, farm fields and more on exceptional international service-learning programs providing essential services of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.  Volunteers work with and learn from and about local people who are making real change in their communities to help children grow and thrive. .

By supporting volunteers' efforts, you contribute directly to the future success of children in partner communities. Your generous donation to your chosen volunteer ensures that these services continue year-round.  Thank you for making this investment in the future of our world - our children!
