Why The Mission? 

The WAR:

On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation launched a massive unprovoked invasion of

Ukraine. Day after day as I watched Russian attacks on schools, hospitals, shopping, and

residential areas I saw the dreams of democracy and freedom for Ukrainians being attacked. I saw

parents huddled in subway tunnels gathering up their families to lead them away from the

destruction and terror. The response of neighboring countries especially Poland in welcoming the

displaced Ukrainians was inspirational.


As I read about the growing volunteer efforts to provide housing, food, medical assistance, and

temporary schooling a call started to emerge. The war has not abated. As this is written, Russia,

now stymied by the incredible will and determination of the Ukrainian people has doubled down

on their attempts to subjugate a people yearning for freedom and peace. With direction from

trained instructors and participation with other volunteers I will be teaching conversational English

to elementary age children as well as providing other educational activities and emotional support

so badly needed.

Your Support: Your financial support will help address the costs for my program service

contribution, which includes local housing, transportation, food and materials, excluding personal

transportation. Your contribution receives a 50% tax deduction. With your support you will be

partnering with me and my team to bring education, support, and hope to these displaced young

people. They need to know that they are valued. That people from a country that is the beacon of

freedom are supporting them in making their hopes for a bright and peaceful future a reality.

Thank you,

Bob Blackford

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!
