The aim of the project is: to investigate the problem of mercy and charity; to prove that the topic about kindness, mercy and charity isnt boring; to raise students awareness of charity in English – speaking countries; to increase/activate vocabulary; to improve English language; to produce a pack of materials for English lessons.
What I did: I studied a lot of English and Russian sources such as books, newspapers, magazines, Internet information; I systematized all these facts and materials; I looked for pictures and photos to illustrate my work; I found proverbs and saying; I made presentation and prepared a charity mini – concert.
Why volunteer? Volunteering is a great way to get work experience! You learn new skills by trying new jobs. You might find something you'd like to do for a living, or discover what you would not want to do. Better yet, you can meet people who can give you guidance and possibly help you to find a paid job later on. Some volunteer opportunities involve travel across Canada or to other countries. Employers will be impressed that you took the initiative to learn new things. You can learn how a charitable organization works. Best of all, you will be taking action to promote what you think is important and probably be helping someone else along the way. Be the change that you seek!

Mother Teresa Mother Teresa was born in 1910 in Albania. In 1928 Agnes left her family to become a nun. She chose a new name for herself – Teresa. In 1948 she and her pupils set up Missionaries of Charity.
They worked at hospitals and schools, took care of children without parents and helped the sick and the dying. Mother Teresa never worried about the money. She always said that the help would come when it was needed.
