About 4 years ago, an Egyptian friend told me that his son had found a summer job in an orphanage in Ukraine and that it would be perfect for him to better his English (it was apparently US sponsored). I told him I thought it was rather about recruiting mercenaries (the son in question is the athletic type, was studying engineering and desperate to get a visa to the West to complete his studies). In the end he did not go and I am happy I helped in this. Of course he had no previous experience of working with children (I doubt there were any).
