Moldova Project Summer 2010

11-21 July 2010

At the start of the summer holidays 14 sixth formers and 2 members of staff travelled to Moldova in Eastern Europe to help organise a summer camp for young Moldovans with the charity Agape.

After a few days in Moldova itself during which the group stayed with families, visited the capital city of Chisinau, and spent time at Agape's Community Centre in Ialoveni, they travelled across the border with 20 Moldovan children to stay in Lacu Rosu in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. Here, as well as enjoying walks in the stunning scenery and going boating on the Red Lake, the group organised arts and crafts activities (including using digital cameras to create cartoon strip versions of an episode of CSI Lacu Rosu and the film Twilight!), taught English, gave music lessons using a guitar and recorders, and played huge amounts of sport. By the end of the camp strong friendships had been formed and it was very clear that both the Moldovan children and the Abingdon boys had gained a great deal from the experience.
