    interested in volunteering wondering where to start

    I have been working in the Moscow region for a few months and I'm interested in getting more involved in the community and in helping out. My spoken Russian skills are not very strong though I am working on improving them and learning the language.

    I'm interested in any kind of volunteer work just opportunities on weekends and where strong Russian skills are not needed. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions let me know.

    Where would you want to help? There are lots of opportunities: animals, old people, orphans, Ru-En or En-Ru translations or proofreading, helping yoga organisations such as "Art of Living", Greenpeace, free English classes for orphanages, and many more.

    Homeless / Elder

    Previet Suuyraia,
    First, thanks a lot for giving hints on where to START helping out.
    I delight myself in helping out the Homeless / Needy / Poor / the elders.
    Very glad I was able to find posts by you and would really appreciate it if you may give some hints on the where to start or the Orgainzation that might allow for me to do this ???

    By the way, I know very very basic words in Russian, and working on that as well. So please keep in mind, as I would't be able to assist using my Verbal Skills !
