Hello, my name is Yuri. I live in Finland. I work as a dance teacher in local college, so mostly I work with students. Also I worked with kids and elderly. With kids we were trying to find different ways to move and interact with each other through the movement. And for older people it was more like entertainment time) I've been living in Finland for 4-5 years already. Before I started to teach, I was studying ballet and folk dacne in Russia and then contemporary dance in Finland. At some point, through the dance, I found that my inner world became more complicated and has developed, but something is missing. So I found this volunteer work possibility. It feels like very right thing to do. And I also feel like I need this experience. It doesn't really matter in what country, something tells me that it's very important and through helping to other people, may be I could encourage my friends to do the same, to help those who needs help and support.
I really don't know where to go and ask - please take me to do volunteer work for you, I really want to help. So I applied for this organization which helps kids in Africa. When I applied I didn't think it through, I mean money issue. It was very clear for me, that I should go. I got in, but then I realized that I don't have that kind of money for the flight and visa. I'm still interested to help, that's the only thing I want, to be honest.
