The aim of the volunteering is to create and hold meaningful summer programmes for the children living the shelters, "laugh, run and move". Volunteers will organise and animate games and sports activities for the children, which will serve a wide range of psychosocial needs and skills such as joy, affection, trust, empathy, respect, contact. Volunteers may organise sessions together with the parents to bring the shared experience of play or teach English for the kids and their families. Activities will be from 9 am till 5.30 pm or afternoon shift with parents.

Accomodation and food

All volunteers will be accommodated in a hostel in Budapest and we will provide a 2 weeks public transportation ticket. Lunch will be provided in the shelters, breakfast and dinner is self-organised, but covered by the project cost.

Location and leisure

The shelters are based in Budapest, what volunteers will be able to access easily by public transportation. The evenings and the second weekend will be free to explore the city centre of Budapest.
