Stories from volunteers
Bespyatova Sofia Meerovna - our most experienced and valuable volunteer! She is a retired citizen and loves to read, knit and study the history and traditions of Jewish culture. Her desire to help people led her to our volunteer center, where she has been helping the community for over 20 years. Her first project was Purim Postman. Sofia wishes that all volunteers would always help those in need with an open heart and soul!
My name is Elizabeth Garbelik. I am 16 years old, and I am a 10th-grade student at Gymnasium No. 3. In my free time, I engage in various creative activities such as music, painting, knitting, and more. But a special place in my heart is reserved for the Jewish community of Bobruisk, where I attend the AJT youth club and engage in volunteering. My journey began two years ago when I participated in the "Your Neighborhood" project. That's where it all started. I really enjoyed spending my free time helping other people and teaching them something new. After that, I volunteered in the Food Security and TechFriend projects, which were also very interesting experiences. It was a great pleasure for me to assist people in understanding their cell phones so that they could talk to their loved ones and friends over long distances. I was worried that I might say something wrong or lack the experience, but all those concerns turned out to be unfounded, and everything went very well. I wish every person to experience the feeling of joy when helping another person and making them happy!
My name is Vanessa, I am 23 years old, and I am always in search of diverse development. Working in a restaurant is my main occupation, but in addition to that, I strive to dedicate time to self-education and professional growth. By taking various courses, participating in online classes and training sessions, I aim to become more competent and learn more about different areas.
One of the key projects I am involved in is "Your District." It is a wonderful opportunity for me to engage in creativity, where I can apply my skills and creativity. This project has given me the chance to explore art therapy and feel useful by helping others through the creative process.
It is through this project that I also became acquainted with volunteering. I am fascinated by the variety of tasks to be performed: helping people, seeing visible results of my work – that is what motivates me every day.
The volunteer center has become more than just a place where I can spend time productively. It is a place where I have found new acquaintances, opportunities to develop my project, and a space where I feel I can contribute to something greater.
Hello, my name is Katya Prokofyeva, and I'm 18 years old. I work as a barista, and in my free time, I'm passionate about visual arts and play the ukulele. In fact, since joining the community in October 2022, I have been volunteering for a whole year now.
Why did I start volunteering? Well, here in the community, it seems like almost everyone is somehow involved in volunteering. Initially, I just came to join my friends, and in the end, I enjoyed it so much that I decided to stay.
Volunteering gives me a sense of being part of something big and good. It's an opportunity to make a contribution to making the world a better place and helping others. Because when you're a volunteer, you feel like a part of a society that cares for each other.
My wish for all volunteers is to always stay resourceful! Don't lose your inspiration, kindness, and the desire to make the world better. Keep up your noble work!
My name is Alexandra Viktorovna Barkova. I am 15 years old and I study at secondary school number 21 in the city of Bobruisk. In my free time, I enjoy music, needlework, reading and preparing for exams. I am also a member of the AJT teenage club in Bobruisk. I have been volunteering for 9 months now. When I first came to the club, I was immediately interested in the topic of volunteering. As soon as the opportunity arose, I began distributing food security kits for the Food Security project. I am very grateful that I have such an opportunity - the opportunity to please and take care of people. I want to wish all the volunteers patience and good mood so that they can bring good to people!
