  • Description

    Hello. My name is Daniel Berchenko. I'm from the U.S.A., but I have roots in Eastern Europe. I was the first person in my family born in the states. My parents, grandparents, and most great-grandparents are from Ukraine. I'm traveling to Ukraine for the first time in my life to connect with my roots. I'll also be traveling to Moldova and Lithuania where some of my great-grandparents immigrated to Ukraine from. I want to spend at least a few weeks in each place, maybe a few months, so I can actually get to know these places my parents and ancestors are from.

    I'm on a limited travel budget and I would like to do some meaningful work while I'm traveling, rather than simply be a tourist. So I'm seeking volunteer work-trade opportunities that will provide me a place to sleep and food to eat in exchange for work.
