Work

Children at the orphanage are hungry for love, care, educational assistance and even just a smile and friendship. Volunteers are essential in providing these simple but usually undermined gestures. These are important for cognitive stimulation, emotional or confidence building which are important to develop inner drive and boosting their self-esteem. This opportunity will present volunteers a chance to impact both the children and themselves. It will give volunteers a gratifying blend of fresh, thrilling, and amazing experiences. The experience of each volunteer is different depending on the level of their innovation and inner drive. Volunteers therefore are expected to have passion for children and the drive to engage children actively to increase the chances of their experiences being worthy while. Daily volunteer activities include playing with the children using those kinds of games that we take lightly when we are back home and think they are old fashioned, assist with school homework and generally ensuring that children are engaged at all times. Children usually wish to understand the volunteer, where they are from, what music they like, sporting activities, and including what sorts of social experiences they prefer engaging in. It is those kinds of things we take for granted that they want to hear. There is an opportunity for endless intellectual capacity to what volunteers could do. Whatever it is that you can think of, just know that your initiatives have an astounding positive effect on the children something that they will not forget.

Being a part of the orphanage triggers an extensive interest in volunteers and is an opportunity to discover one’s hidden or unknown skills, patience, love, talents and even interests something which usually the volunteer themselves never recognized. It is a chance to discover the inner person. Our volunteers are given an opportunity to be as innovative as much as they could as they will simply have this time. There is therefore no particular skill required to participate in this program.

Work

Located in the World Heritage Site – Victoria Falls, volunteers have the opportunity to engage with the most affected children and take them through a healing and joyful moment through play and education. This is an amazing volunteering opportunity for those who need no other skills but an open heart and the willingness to work on programs that can make vulnerable children’s lives better. The program has a positive impact on the targeted children and youth. They face hardships through stigma and discrimination in the community and among their peers who often do not understand the disease yet. Volunteers are there to provide this emotional support and education to the rest of the young and children who are at risk of infection. Volunteers do this through school-based HIV/AIDS clubs targeting adolescent youth. Furthermore, volunteers would occasionally use sporting activities especially soccer one of the largest sports in Africa to educate young people on HIV.

Accommodation is provided in a choice or either a host family or at the Volunteer House which is located approximately 4kms from the city centre.

Work

The project is based in Victoria Falls at our offices which also act as a recreational hub for children and youth who lack basic community and educational services. It provides children and youth an opportunity not only to interact but access basic services to promote their social wellbeing. The idea of the centre is to keep children and youth out of risk places which they might otherwise find themselves in as a result of a lack of opportunities in safer places. Volunteers on this program facilitate extra-curricular activities for children and youth through a child center which supports those who need it most. The idea of the centre is to provide recreational services to children and youth who do not have access to such services. The center also addresses issues of child abuse among other challenges as it is a safe home to deliberate and receive support from. Volunteers work together with representatives of the Victoria Falls Child Protection Committee and our staff to identify and resolve all child protection related issues. From this same centre, volunteers have an opportunity to engage in indoor and outdoor play games with children who occasionally visit the centre for play. It is basically an opportunity for international volunteers to appreciate initiatives around safeguarding the rights of children and their protection

Hidden within a green valley, the commune of Coly - St Amand is located in the heart of the Périgord Noir, a territory rich in history! Composed of two former municipalities that decided to join together, we will contribute to uniting these formerly separate territories. The ruins of the abbey castle in Coly, a testiment to the valley's rich past, contain beautiful architectural elements (bread oven, vaulted room...) and more secrets that are still to be revealed. The abbey of St Amand is proof of the power of church had over this territory throughout the Middle Ages. After several workcamps dedicated to clearance work of the castle, this year we'll continue to unveil the ruins, but we'll also work around the abbey of St Amand to enhance its surroundings and the paths that connect the two villages. Festivals, night markets, and village celebrations will be held throughout the summer, and you will work with local volunteers to help set them up. By organizing your own set of activities with other volunteers and leaders, you'll discover the locals' hospitality and and the charm of Coly- St Amand's landscape and heritage.

*** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** Are you fascinated by the medieval universe? Sign up and come and experience two weeks of volunteering in an authentic district of Noyon! Built in Roman times, Noyon has grown through the ages and left its mark. The town was notably home to the coronation of Charlemagne. Thus, it is possible today to walk in the heart of the cathedral quarter, a true witness of the medieval organization. However, its history does not stop there. Noyon also bears witness to the impact of the Great War. You will renovate a big wall located in front of the Noyon cathedral, in the heart of the town centre. The intervention will consist in unjoining a wall on the public domain and to carry out visible stone coatings.

Accomodation and food

Accommodation will be in tents, girls and boys separated, behind the Jean Bouin gymnasium. The showers (non-mixed) will be at your disposal in this gymnasium. You will share the different collective tasks and prepare meals together. The collective life, as well as the kitchen area will take place under a big tent.

Location and leisure

Noyon is a town of about 14,000 inhabitants located in the Hauts-de-France, in the department of Oise, in the heart of the former Picardie region. The town is located 1h30 from Paris on the Paris-Lille axis. Rich in Gothic cathedrals, the region also has a varied heritage and a strong history to be found in the tourist points: Chateau de Chantilly (1h), Palais de Compiegne (30min), the Chateau de Pierrefonds (40min), the Armistice Quarry (30min), etc. Don't forget, the French July 14th national holiday falls during your stay! You will have the opportunity to attend the fireworks of Noyon.

Project hosted by

Built in the roman age, the city of Noyon expands itself with time. Charlemagne was crowned king in 768 in this city! Today it is possible to walk in the heart of cathedral district, a witness of the medieval organization. Nevertheless, its history is not ending there. You can find some buildings from XVII century to XIX century despite World War I. Today, the town council wants to enhance this heritage, to restore its historic value, for this reason, Concordia proposes for the third time a workcamp. As last time, the work camp will be located next to the cathedral. The goal is to renovate the wall of a private property which is directly visible by tourists because of its location, just in front of the cathedral. Thanks to its central position, this workcamp will be the chance to meet and share with the local population.

Work

Throughout the year participants from all over the world come to Iceland for an immersive photography-related learning camp. SEEDS coordinators help the participants to develop their unique photographic skills through workshops and feedback sessions on technical settings, compositional considerations as well as developing conceptual frameworks which progress the participants individual style. When the workshop ends, we select some of our best pictures from the camp and prepare those images for an informal online exhibition. While learning about photography the participants explore Icelandic culture by taking part in it, capturing it and also by displaying their work during the camps. One of our objectives is to deliver environmental as well as cultural messages and draw the attention through pictures made in the camp. Participants should be prepared for walking and visually exploring the city streets and working within a flexible time schedule. Participants will be photographing in their free time outside of workshop hours with images to be discussed at group feedback sessions. Participants should arrive ready to shoot and should bring with them their own digital cameras, lenses, laptops and tripodes if possible. Note this project is a learning/sharing camp and not a regular work camp; we may be able to organize some outdoor voluntary work but it depends on our partners and the weather. Participants should use the opportunity to share about their own culture or country, such as food, music, games or films with the international group. This camp is open to participants aged 16 to 20 years, during their stay SEEDS organises a programme that combines learning, sharing, getting to know Iceland, its culture, and having fun while exploring the capital city and some of the most stunning nature attractions in the Golden Circle and the South Shore excursions. The camp happens around the summer solstice, when the sun hardly sets and the nights are almost as bright as the days. The nights are magical and staying awake enjoying the surroundings is a unique experience.

Accomodation and food

SEEDS participants will stay in an equipped house, which is located about 4 kilometers from the centre of the city. The house includes basic facilities such as showers, washing machine, kitchen and everyone is expected to show consideration for their companions. The group will sleep in shared rooms and participants shall bring their own sleeping bag. Participants from other camps may also stay in the house. Participants will receive food supplies and be in charge of the cooking and cleaning activities. Do not forget some traditional/typical food,recipes, music, games or movies from your country for the international evening.

Location and leisure

Reykjavik is a dynamic, modern city which lives in harmony with beautiful nature, using renewable energy sources - geothermal power and glacial rivers. The world’s northernmost capital bridges the Atlantic, between Europe and America. Reykjavík is spread across a peninsula with a panoramic view of the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean on almost all sides. It is an International city with a lively Cosmopolitan cultural scene. Additional excursions (eg. Snaefellsnes, Hot River hike or Reykjanes Peninsula) can be arranged at discount fares in case there is additional free time after the workshops and sessions of the camp. Weather may be cold or rainy, so we recommend to bring warm and/or waterproof clothes.

Project hosted by

This is the thirteenth year (since 2008) that SEEDS organizes series of International Photo marathons, while we started organising camps for teenagers in the year 2010.

Meeting point

Meeting time will be 18:00 (6:00 pm) in the afternoon of July 9 at the BSÍ bus station or at SEEDS office. Participants that cannot arrive on time (later flights) will be sent information on how to reach the camp.

Last summer, a first workcamp was welcomed in this neighbourhood to create a large graffiti mural on the wall of the football stadium. It is very much appreciated by the locals. The animators of the Community Centre would like to welcome new volunteers to create murals with graffiti paint or mosaic. There is a lot of supports in the neighbourhood that could be painted or decorated: buildings housing, electricity transformers, benches, stairs, garage walls, etc. The final project will be chosen with the inhabitants during this spring. A camp leader will be at your side to teach you spray painting or mosaic techniques.

*** VERSION EN FRANCAIS DISPONIBLE EN FIN DE DESCRIPTION *** *** French version at the end of the description *** In the heart of Occitany, close to Toulouse, is Auzielle, a small semi-rural village built in traditional red bricks. Today, this ancient heritage is in bad conditions: the town’s church walls have suffered from moist and some bricks need urgent replacement. You will reshape Auzielle’s old church by re-crafting the decaying walls and replacing broken bricks. In this workcamp you will learn brick crafting techniques, making hand-made mortar and assuring stability to a construction. During free time there will be activities to discover Toulouse and the neighboring area, as well as workshops to raise awareness on social and environmental issues.
