During the two years of GoCamp we covered 70,000 schoolchildren, with almost 500 foreign volunteers working with them. Thanks to this, more than 700 schools from 400 localities throughout Ukraine have equal access to quality and interesting learning of a foreign language, children from even the most remote villages have the opportunity to learn other cultures and speak English, while foreigners see a genuine Ukraine, free of stereotypes.
