Learning Russian

Russian is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia, the most widely spoken of the Slavic languages, and the largest native language in Europe. Russian belongs to the family of Indo-European languages and is one of three (or, according to some authorities, four) living members of the East Slavic languages, the others being Belarusian and Ukrainian (and possibly Rusyn, often considered a dialect of Ukrainian).

How can you help?

The Chernobyl Children's Project relies upon the generous support of corporations and individuals just like you. Perhaps you are aware of a friend or neighbor who has participated in the CCP's efforts. In fact, we hope someone you know -- either an employee, colleague, or friend -- referred this Web site to you because their family hosted a child. If that is the case, then they can tell you more eloquently than written words what the experience meant to them.

TWO WEEKS ago, a group of Belarusian children arrived in California for six weeks of fun with host families in Marin and Sonoma.
For the children, who hail from regions affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, it's also an opportunity to strengthen their immune systems with fresh air and clean food and water.
