Reflections: Mission trip to Ukraine: An orphanage mission trip

(sponsored by the Office of Christian Charity, Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA; By Olga Liskiwskyi, Mission Team Member, St. Mary the Protectress Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral, Detroit/Southfield MI) 

Also, the Znamianka Orphanage is impressive itself; the children there, who have disabilities, are all educated according to the Montessori Method.

Excerpt: 

I saw firsthand what an impact these methods have in the development of the children. I worked with one young boy, age 4, who just the year prior was not walking or talking. He has Down syndrome and was not interacting with anyone until they began working with him using Montessori methods. They now call him “the Professor” because he knows all the activities of his classroom and is talking and walking. He even tested me on my knowledge of various animal sounds.
