Hello! I am Ivan Prymachenko, and I help the children from the village school to take part in the GoCamp project. In today's globalized world, everyone needs to know the international language of communication – English. Because English is a key, that opens doors to the world of international business, networking, advanced researchers, modern literature and online courses.

Hello! We are Global Shapers Kyiv Hub and we support GoCamp because it is a wonderful format of innovational education accessible to children from all over Ukraine. To support such projects means, for us, to contribute to the development of a new, well-educated generation of conscious citizens of Ukraine, to motivate young people to make new discoveries and extend their horizons, to overcome barriers, and to foster sharing and exchange in all the spheres.
My name is Petro Chernyshov and with your help, I am planning to fundraise UAH 28,000 to finance the participation of a local village school in the GoCamp project. There is wonderfully saying: “As many languages you know, as many times you are a human being.” Foreign languages offer new opportunities for development and open new horizons, helping to read cultural codes of other people. It is very important, since we are living in a small world where we need to understand each other.
When I was eight years old, I went to school six kilometers away from home. There were no buses, but there were good classmates. Together, we went every day to school and back in the second shift. It was raining in autumn, snowing in winter – and the snow was never shoveled, then again raining in spring, yet I remember that we were a very cheerful and friendly team. It was a small town without good schools or teachers, and we didn’t know what it means “to study hard.” It goes without saying that none of us spoke English, even the only teacher in that school.
If you speak English, you get access to dozens of opportunities every week, hundreds of interesting people and contacts, and thousands of articles with the most up-to-date knowledge. I don’t speak perfect English yet and I can’t use those opportunities to the fullest, yet I am doing my best to master it. It is a must for me! And, I am sure, not only for me.
My name is Olga Rudneva and I, together with my friends, am going to raise 28 000 UAH in 14 days for one more school in a village to have a chance to organize English summer camp. I want the language not limit the choice, but to give new opportunities! I want to see volunteers who can help kids from a small town to speak English. Let’s say there is a certain Olia, who is eager to see volunteers in her small town, who will help the girl to start speaking English. I also want a certain Olia to be able to read English books, watch films in the language of the original, find friends abroad easily and have a possibility to choose in what country to enter the university.
I, Vasyl Miroshnichenko, will be a hero to rural schools and help children from village schools take part in a GoCamp project and get modern, qualitative education, learn foreign languages and spend three unforgettable weeks with a foreign volunteer. Learning foreign language essentially changed my life – it opened me the access to opportunities and knowledge and gave me a chance to study in an American school.
