Finding temporary work in Ukraine is not an easy task given that there is still a great deal of poverty across the country. There are, however, various opportunities for volunteer workers that offer accommodation and food and the chance to get involved with a local project. The Ukraine Orphanage Project gives volunteers the chance to stay with a Ukrainian family whilst helping with a wide range of activities in one of Kiev’s three large orphanages. Although the project does cost money to take part in, it is a good way to see the country and learn what it is like to live as a Ukrainian in the country’s capital city.
