A Reunion for the RCWS Scholarship Recipients
In July 2016, our partner, the Pskov Children’s Fund, held a reunion for the RCWS scholarship recipients in the Pskov region. The students got a chance to catch up and take part in a leadership and team building seminar.
These reunions have become a tradition. They allow students to gather, swap stories from the past year, express their thanks to their supporters, and have a brief vacation after the stress of finals. The leadership and team building seminar was held in a scenic area overlooking the Pskov Lake and the students carried on the reunion tradition of assembling at a local cafe for a celebratory dinner marking the end to a successful school year.
A Farm Equipment for the Opochka Orphanage
The RCWS recently helped the Opochka Specialized Orphanage in Pskov acquire agricultural equipment to increase the yield of the orphanage’s garden and provide the 98 students living on the grounds with practical skills.
