Community of Kamenka

 

 

In Kamenka, the group was met with open arms and warm hearts.  The community members welcomed the team into their homes and treated the participants with the highest respect.  Student participants were paired up and matched with local community families.  After eating dinner at the respective families' homes, students were invited to a discotheque at the school.  Other events in Kamenka included a end of project banquet at the local school and a soccer match between the Americans and a group of kids from Kamenka.  The community worked side-by-side with the team to restore the desecrated cemetery.  Without their help, the team would not have accomplished all that it was able to complete in Kamenka.  Despite language barriers, people from each culture were able to learn so much from each other.
