August 8- Central Asia!

Published: August 9, 2017

We can't believe we're so close to international day and the end of our session! We've been working hard to prepare for the global summit, iron chef, dragonfly story hour, soccer tournament, song exchange and dance performance, and we hope some of you can make it to Iday to see the show!
Tonight we had a simulation to help us understand the challenges that migrant workers face in Russia as they make decisions about whether to leave home and family in Central Asia for economic opportunity in Russia. We learned a lot about  a situation that was unfamiliar to many villagers but is of great importance in the Russian-speaking world.
