Kitezh Youth Exchange
Testimonials from financial aid recipients at The Haven on Gabriola Island. So many people have been helped over the years, and here we give them the chance to show their appreciation and tell us something about how coming to The Haven has affected their lives. Perhaps something you read here will strike a chord, and you'll make a donation too. We have provided easy buttons to allow you to donate online, or you can contact us to set up a regular monthly donation.
Twelve interns and graduates of the Youth Leadership Program at The Haven have a fantastic opportunity for a youth exchange with Kitezh in Russia. Kitezh is a non-profit community of foster families whose aim is simple: to give children a real chance in life. It is located in rural Kaluga region, south of Moscow. We hope to send a group of Haven Youth Leaders to Kitezh in August 2013, and welcome a group from Kitezh to Canada in the summer of 2014.
Kitezh is one of the projects of the Ecologia Youth Trust, an international charity based in Scotland that promotes the welfare of disadvantaged young people by providing safe secure learning environments where they can discover and develop their potential to make a contribution to their communities while protecting the environment. The Ecologia Youth Trust supports Kitezh in many ways, including making a connection with young people in other countries through their very well established Youth Exchanges and Volunteers program.
If you would like to support this exchange, you can make a donation to Haven Foundation and specify that you would like to support the Kitezh Youth Exchange. Go to our Ways to Give page for more information on how to make a donation.
