GoCamp educational project for kids in Ukraine

GoCamp educational project for kids in Ukraine

Global office is a Ukrainian NGO aimed at promoting language learning and volunteer movement in Ukraine, fostering intercultural dialogue and public diplomacy, supported by international organizations (UN Volunteers, British Council), US Embassy in Ukraine, the Presidential Administration, Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, other state ministries, National Scout Organization of Ukraine PLAST, businesses and leading media.

GoGlobal is working on ensuring that Ukrainians speak foreign languages, and thus have a chance to be heard all around the world.

We are implementing the largest educational project for children in Ukraine called GoCamp with the involvement of volunteers from all over the world. The main goal is to educate a new young generation of active and conscious citizens of Ukraine, capable of life long learning, and prepared for the challenges of the 21st century, fluent in foreign languages and open to other cultures and experiences.

During the first two years of GoCamp we covered 70,000 schoolchildren, with almost 500 foreign volunteers working with them. Thanks to this, more than 700 schools from 400 localities throughout Ukraine have equal access to quality and interesting learning of a foreign language, children from even the most remote villages have the opportunity to learn other cultures and speak English, while foreigners see a genuine Ukraine, free of stereotypes.
