Two college students who completed a three-month stint with the Take One Ukrainian Child’s Hand project in Corvallis’ sister city of Uzhhorod will talk about their experiences at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library, 645 N.W. Monroe Ave. The public event is free.

Hannah Bittner, a senior at Oregon State University and Sydney MacNaughton, a graduate of Portland State University, taught English to children at an orphanage, rehab center, youth center and other sites in Uzhhorod in Ukraine.

The TOUCH project is sponsored by the Corvallis-Uzhhorod Sister Cities Association.
