A great opportunity to volunteer in Orion Children's Community in western Russia, a rural village community of foster parents and teachers who take in children from orphanages and raise and educate them along with their own children. Orion is an entirely child-centred, therapeutic education community. On 10 hectares of land it has a number of wooden houses, a school, a church and a farm, with natural woodlands and a lake nearby. Volunteers live with a family, teach English to children and take part in the daily working and social life of the community, gardening, cooking, building.
