All three work projects are different. However, all of them include construction / renovation and / or environmental work. In Johannesberg, you will help build a playground for kindergarten kids. The town of Reichenau is looking forward to setting up a “Nature Experience Path” that includes setting up various “activity stops” - for example building a simple wooden shelter that allows you to watch birds, and a boardwalk to discover a pond. And finally, you will help an NGO renovate their holiday centre in Bad Herrenalb.
Unterkunft und Verpflegung
In Johannesberg, you will be accommodated in the local kindergarten, for which you will build the playground. In Reichenau, you will have lots of space in the local gym hall. The last accommodation in Bad Herrenalb is in the seminar house itself. The first two locations include a kitchen for your own use, the last one provide three meals a day.
Lage und Freizeit
The MTV allows you to see three very different regions in Germany’s South: First, you will be working in Bavaria, in between Frankfurt and Wurzburg (so you might be able to see both cities). Reichenau is both a town and an island at Lake Constance, Germany’s biggest lake at the German border to Switzerland and Austria. Bad Herrenalb is located in the Black Forest, quite close to Karlsruhe, Baden-Baden and the French border.
Wer organisiert das Projekt?
There are three projects (and three different project partners) involved in this MTV project: Firstly, the towns of Johannesberg and Reichenau, and finally a German NGO that runs a non-profit holiday house.
PRACTICAL & FINANCIAL CONDITIONS
A food budget and the accommodation are provided during the camps.
National travel costs between the three locations will be reimbursed up to 40€: You need to go directly from Johannesberg to Reichenau on May 19th. This project will end on June 3rd, whilst the one in Bad Herrenalb will start on June 6th – so you have a short break in-between which you might use to travel a bit (on your own costs). It might be possible to arrive on June 5th already – if you intend to do so, please let your campleader know in advance!
