This photo includes RPCV Teresa Havenar and Volunteer Patrick. It also includes two children, Alyona and Igor, that attended the school I was working at and who also helped build our playground. We were jumping for excitement over the delivery and installation of playground equipment in a rural community in Eastern Ukraine. This playground was made possible through a partnership grant and the contributions of the community. Many people helped to make this possible and worked for free for over a month, we had several rain delays!
As part of this project students and community members were educated on HIV/AIDS, Environmental Awareness, and Volunteerism. This playground was dedicated to those affected by HIV/AIDS in Ukraine.
