Introduction video

Our volunteers said

  • I learned how to handle new situations and how to get to know new people. I got to know another culture and other living conditions.

  • My volunteer year opened my horizons for trying new unknown things and letting me see more options for the future.

  • I feel like during this volunteer year I have learned to enjoy every day of my life more and to be thankful for everything I am blessed with.
