My name is Eсaterina Kalinkina. I am 16 years old. I study at the IT Technical School (CEITI). I speak two foreign languages: French and English.
I enjoy volunteering because I like doing good deeds and helping others!
I cannot say that a certain RVC project is my favorite because all of them are great and necessary, each in its own way. I volunteer in Give a Smile, SunRise, and Sources of Mercy projects.
RVC is a large and unite family where I feel really good. People here are always ready to help each other, are nice and friendly. It is a great pleasure to work with them!
Volunteer activities bring me positive emotions and motivate me to encourage others to help each other, especially, those in need.
My name is Anastasia. I am 26. I am studying at “UTM” or at the Technical University of Moldova, as a marketer – logistician.
I accidentally found out about RVC. An acquaintance of mine worked as a coordinator at RVC. He invited me to the volunteer center.
– I have been volunteering for 6 months.
– Participated in the delivery of gifts, at master classes, as well as in the “Global Day” and in the action “Bring joy!”
– My main activity is calling the elderly and volunteers.
In volunteering, I see a lot of pleasant and useful things! For example, I have the opportunity to apply my skills and knowledge for good purposes, I meet very interesting people, thereby expanding my horizons, etc.
Elderly people are mostly very lonely … I didn’t have grandparents, but now I have a lot of them! (Happy) I try to support them, to listen. I am always happy when I hear laughter on the other end of the line!
Elderly people are grown-up children. Lovely and at the same time wise! This makes them very interesting to me.
One day, I called an elderly man. By my voice, I mistakenly thought that this was my geography teacher, but it turned out that this interesting lady had worked as a shoemaker for 30 years. Surprisingly, this is hard work, not for a woman! And also, this is a very necessary profession. But often people are not attracted to becoming a master …
My name is Irina, I am 57 years old. I am a retired engineer, accountant, and administrator. I like to lead an active lifestyle and be creative. I am also engaged in volunteering for the third year. I am always happy to help people, and now I can pay more attention to this, because I have free time and opportunities. At RVC, I was attracted by the interest in new activities and an existing organization that I saw great potential in. I am inspired to continue my active volunteer work by people who need my help, as well as the support of my beloved daughter and like-minded people. From the very beginning, I chose to help the elderly. I am interested in learning and developing in this field, giving joy and hope. My advice to new volunteers is to look around and find those who need your help, and then start giving a piece of yourself, your time, and your soul.
My name is Anya Doni and I am a volunteer. My first experience of volunteering was at school, my guys and I made New Year’s cards for children from the orphanage. And if we talk about a larger, serious project, then I took part in a national conference against violence, where, by the way, the idea of a social project created at the Be Do Have summer school was born: “Spune NU Violenței”.
I was inspired to volunteer by the desire to help children, to do something good for them. At that stage of my life, I could say, it was like wearing pink glasses. Of course, I heard about violence, but it was somehow far from me and was taken more from films, books, and the topics raised at the conference, statistics and frightening facts greatly shocked me. As if I hadn’t expected that people can be so cruel, especially towards children.
I am motivated to volunteer most of all by the desire to give – strength, time, my energy, to share my positive, to help those who need it. And get positive emotions in return. This is probably my dope! I believe that positive emotions are the key to a happy life. Speaking about the projects in which I have participated, I immediately remember my sister’s participation in the project “School of life”. Masha asked me to give a lecture about sex education among teenagers. I gave this lesson, realized that I liked it, and most importantly, that the children liked the lecture! I also really enjoy working on my project “Spune NU violenței!” – this project is aimed at informing adolescents about different types of violence, as well as learning to recognize and respond to violence. One of the most striking recent events is the presentation of the project to the Summer School Be.Do. Have and obtaining a certificate from KMB. I didn’t expect to receive this certificate at all and, of course, when your work is appreciated, it’s very nice. And the very defense of the project was very exciting for me, I was very worried, because I understood that all responsibility for the project lay with me, and since I did not have a team, I could not take into account some shortcomings.
Hey! I am 20 years old. I am a student, UTM, Electricity.
I learned about the RVC from a young man who was already an active volunteer for the center. Detachment began in July 2020 – she delivered hot meals to lonely, sedentary elderly.Today she is an active volunteer of the CALL CENTER – she is informing the elderly in Chisinau and the regions about RVC projects and the epidemiological situation in the country, helps with the delivery of food to lonely elderly people and congratulates them on the holidays.
Volunteering attracts her with a variety of stories, destinies of older people. With the usual planned informing of the elderly, I got acquainted with the stories of dozens of heads and grandfathers. Hearing various interesting stories from the elderly is one of the main motivators of her activity. For example, my grandmother, when calling, told about her occupation back in the Soviet Union. About how she was a mechanic, how much this profession fascinated her and how much she misses that time. Such short and insignificant, at first glance, things, but they make Leroux think about her profession, about how important it is to love what you do and truly get carried away with your craft and constantly grow and develop professionally.
My name is Sasha Chubatyuk. I am 29 years old. I am a University student and a volunteer.
My first volunteer experience was last year in April, on Good Deeds Day. I like helping people in various ways.
I volunteer in the Repair School and in the Sources of Mercy projects. I care for the elderly, go shopping with them and help them within the framework of different community service projects.
I am driven by the idea that I do good deeds, help people meet their needs, and this motivates me to continue volunteering.
When I think of the benefits my volunteer activities bring to these people, I feel motivated to go on, of course, together with other volunteers, whom I wish success, strength, and inspiration!
Hello everyone My name is Yanaki Ilona, I am 17 years old and I am a volunteer!
I study at the Lyceum “Olymp”, and I also study English. I love languages, and would like to know a few) My Hobbies are music, reading, and psychology.
I first came to the RVC at the age of 15, I was inspired by projects, friendly atmosphere and volunteering itself, so since June 2018, I started volunteering and helping people!
We have a lot of cool, unusual, interesting projects, most of all I like the ideas of projects: “Creation Space “ – which is aimed at developing public speaking skills, gaining self-confidence, as well as the” happy women’s Club”, where women are made happy, hold interesting and useful lectures, introduce them to various specialists who can help them with practical advice. It’s great, isn’t it?.
But my favorite project is, of course, #Myself!)
The project ” Myself” works with children, teaches them how to behave in different situations, safety! I take an active part in this project and get a lot of pleasure from working with children! I also participate in projects: “Do good”; “Creation space”; Yasam; Shabbat NES, Birthday Day.
I would like to wish the volunteers inspiration, strength, and success in all their endeavors!
My name is Seryozha, I am a 4th-year student at the Financial and banking College. I like to play mind games, go out with friends, and travel.
I decided to join the volunteer center after the volunteer job Fair. Since then, I have been volunteering for six months. I still remember my thoughts when I first got into RVC: “it’s fun Here!”
I am motivated by the mood with which the volunteers do their work. With this positive attitude, we can do a lot to change life in the country for the better!
I participate in the project “give a smile”, where I help children in hospitals to distract from their illness and enjoy life. A team of volunteers and I conduct master classes and play games for them. Communication with children brings a lot of fun, and their smiles are the best gift for me!
I would advise all new volunteers to try themselves in each project and find the one that suits them perfectly.
Hello everyone! My name is Elena, I am 38 years old and I am a volunteer of the Republican Center! Behind me I have two higher educations: journalism and psychology. After them, I worked for a long time in a bank and a leasing company. Today I am working on my own online project on eco-bags.
In my free time I dance, paint and meditate. How did I become a part of the Russian Exhibition Center? Two years ago, I organized an event to clean up the capital’s park. Pavel came to the cleaning service, who at that time was a volunteer at the Russian Exhibition Center in the “Clean Chisinau” project, and it was he who introduced me to the Center. For two years I took an active part in the “Clean Chisinau” project, and during the pandemic I decided to join the delivery of packages / products for the elderly. At the Center, I found like-minded people whom I did not find in my environment. I am convinced that making the world a better place is much easier for all together, as a team, than alone. I also really enjoy working with the coordinators of the RVC, they manage to gather and organize everyone, it motivates and inspires. And the girls working there are very cool and perky in themselves. For me, everything that happens in the Center is something absolutely amazing, so I cannot mention any one story.
Hi! My name is Lily, I am developing web design for mobile applications. I am a graphic designer by profession. I love active recreation, Hiking on mountain trails, I love to travel, this inspires me to new projects and their implementation. I also walk my videos sometimes.
I got into RVC thanks to your Facebook page and invitations to participate in events. As soon as I had time, I remembered that I wanted to devote it to helping people together with the team of the volunteer center. I myself have been engaged in volunteer activities for more than 9 years. But I like to do this more in RVC, because here your participation is encouraged, and this moves you forward, motivates you to develop further and, not least, encourages you to invite others. In short, I like the level that is supported here!
I continue to be a volunteer, because to be useful to someone, for me – it is to improve, create, influence, help – it is a continuous chain. I like it when people try to change for the better, or find answers to their questions when they turn to me for help, advice, or request.
If we talk about motivation, it is probably, in a sense, a miracle that happens when the right people find the right people. Have you watched the movie “Stars on earth”? The main character-a boy is forced to endure bullying until he finds the right (knowledgeable and not indifferent) teacher, who finds the reason and correctly explains it and everything falls into place. I’m motivated by meeting people and how we influence each other.
I try to participate in all projects, but the closest, of course, are those related to nature, its preservation, ecology. I also like projects that focus on training and development, both for the younger generation and the elderly.I believe that development is an important process in our life that needs a lot of attention. And projects related to creativity, transformation into the new, because through them people learn to see beauty.
One of the most striking events for me was the photo exhibition “Past Now”, with the participation of older people. The shots were represented by their transformation into their best version. Also at the exhibition, everyone could try out innovations in the field of mobile technologies and games. In fact, there was something memorable in every meeting, event, and a lot of love, knowledge, time, and work was invested in each event!
I want to wish the Republican Volunteer Center to become even better! Even more interesting! Create a lot of projects that are important to bring to life!
Thank you, you are great!!!

Good afternoon, my name is Igor Perchun and I am 50 years old. I own my own business, but due to the quarantine, I suspended the work of my enterprise in order to protect my employees. I joined the RVC recently. Having learned about the need to participate in the delivery of humanitarian aid and meals for the elderly, I realized that I could and should help. I deliver meals for the elderly, and also participate in the delivery of humanitarian aid as a driver, and I feel that my help is needed now more than ever. First of all, I like the activity and responsiveness of the coordinators of the Volunteer Center. They seem to work for two, or even three at once. I believe that this kind of adaptation to the conditions is necessary. Help must be provided and if volunteers are able to help people at a distance, it only warms my soul. I believe that the world needs good deeds. I myself was the most active pioneer, and from childhood I remember that the weak and needy need help. That is why now I am trying to make the world a better place and make my own modest contribution to the common good.
My name is Roman Raspopa, I am 17 years old. I study at the “Children’s Academy” school. I learned about RVC through my classmates, the guys talked about the projects of the Center and I wanted to join such a cool movement.
I have been volunteering for 10 months, during this time I made new acquaintances, made friends with other volunteers and coordinators. Today I call, inform and interview the elderly, and also cheer them up. The latter is my favorite. I love to tell interesting stories and, most importantly, listen to the same stories in return. People of the golden age have a lot of life experience and a storehouse of stories that you want to listen to more and more.
As I said above, what I like most about the volunteer movement is communication and meeting new people. Most of all I was surprised by the Jewish holidays, because I did not know anything about them before. In just 10 months of my volunteering, I filled in all these gaps, learned national holidays, learned more from the history of the Jewish people, and also took part in Shabbat.
Being a volunteer at the RVC means being part of a big family that wants to make this world a little better. And this is great!
