On June, 17 and 18 in the sanatorium Desna the 34th group of volunteers of the Peace Corps held its final meeting before undertaking the responsibilities. Three months ago 59 volunteers have arrived to Ukraine from the United States of America and during this period of time they had been living in families in Chernigov and Kiev regions. They studied language, culture of our country, got professional skills. Now these volunteers will go to all parts of Ukraine - basically to small towns and villages, and also the regional centers.
On Tuesday, the first day of general meetings, volunteers have familiarized with the organizational moments of the work, and also have got a surprise: Ron Chatter, the chairman of the Peace Corps in the world, who had been with an official visit to Ukraine just these days, came to deliver a speech in front of them. An official ceremony of taking an oath by volunteers which was conducted by William Taylor, an honourary USA ambassador in Ukraine, took place the next day. He declared his wishes to his fellow countrymen and called them the true ambassadors of the United States in Ukraine.
Volunteers and their partners were moved to tears, thanked each other and the organizers of this event and were full of enthusiasm to go to their homes and begin teamwork.
In expectation of the ceremony…
