: You know, I agree with www.tourkiev.com the best thing for them will be computers you can buy them in Ukraine, for example in Odessa a new one can cost $350.
: Best Regadrs, Anatoliy.
: : I am visiting my grandfather's village school for 'Last Bell' and presenting two trophies with a cash prize to the two pupils from the Junior School and the SEnior School who have this year worked and tried hard and made the most effort in their studies - not the cleverest (nd often the laziest!).
: : Could anyone advise on what would be a suitable amount of money to give to each pupil - don't want to overwhelm them but I want it to be of some significance to the winners and an incentive to the rest to try hard for next year!
Thanks A for your advice - I think if I had not already promised money with the Head of School I would have taken this route - although I wonder if these children would be able to use them in their homes in the village? The School does not even have a computer - I bought them a TV and Video at Christmas and they were over the moon! As there are now three prizewinners three comps would be somewhat over my budget but I am grateful to know that a comp maybe at start of next school year would be possible for $350 (the one comp shop I visited in Lviv last year was much more expensive - like UK prices!).
