Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local partner organization “Grupa Kobra” has put a lot of effort in the past years in developing and improving life conditions of its small community concerning its environmental protection and encouraging youth activism in this rural area. It is a group of 11 young people that got active since 2007, when they realized that if they do not do something for their village and for themselves, no one will. Although young, they received twice an award for their activities from the Ministry for Youth. It has been 12 years that they organize international workcamps with the aim to familiarize the local young people with their peers from other countries as they do not have opportunities to travel. It is simply phenomenal, but during the workcamp, 100% of the local community (all 350 of them) get involved in one way or another, whether is for working with the volunteers, baking pies, organizing excursions, or simply hanging out or welcoming the volunteers at the station. In the past workcamps they turned an illegal dump into a children’s park, they created a small resort with a beach volleyball terrain, reconstructed and repaired an abandoned cultural center. Gatherings and activities together with the local youth are essential to this workcamp, the hosts would use the opportunity to present their local community, tradition and customs and, together with the participants of the camp, to encourage rural development, youth mobility and intercultural understanding. To get a better idea about the place and the team, have a look at the web documentary YRS-VSS produced in 2017, following three stories of workcamp leaders, one being in Donja Toponica: http://youthleaders.online/jancha.php

Anforderungen

The volunteers should expect manual work, cleaning, painting and work with hand tools. With this we want to raise the interest of young people in sports and socializing, as our Club is one of the rare ones in the surrounding villages. We wish to make opportunities for young people in order to keep them in the village, but also to keep the Club that started to lurk.

In order to change that, as free time activities, we will organize language classes and various get-together workshops.

Lage und Freizeit

Donja Toponica (15 km from Nis) is a village of merely 300 inhabitants, situated very close to Nis, one of the biggest cities of Serbia. There will be organized a visit to the historical sites in the city of Nis (the birth place of the Constantine the Great) and an excursion to the countryside, to our local partner Zoo Planet and their animals and they will have a chance to ride a horse if they want. It will be possible to spend one entire day for sport or other activities with local youth according to the preferences of the participants.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The local partner organization “Grupa Kobra” has put a lot of effort in the past years in developing and improving life conditions of its small community concerning its environmental protection and encouraging youth activism in this rural area. It is a group of 11 young people that got active since 2007, when they realized that if they do not do something for their village and for themselves, no one will. Although young, they received twice an award for their activities from the Ministry for Youth. It has been 12 years that they organize international workcamps with the aim to familiarize the local young people with their peers from other countries as they do not have opportunities to travel. It is simply phenomenal, but during the workcamp, 100% of the local community (all 350 of them) get involved in one way or another, whether is for working with the volunteers, baking pies, organizing excursions, or simply hanging out or welcoming the volunteers at the station. In the past workcamps they turned an illegal dump into a children’s park, they created a small resort with a beach volleyball terrain, reconstructed and repaired an abandoned cultural center. Gatherings and activities together with the local youth are essential to this workcamp, the hosts would use the opportunity to present their local community, tradition and customs and, together with the participants of the camp, to encourage rural development, youth mobility and intercultural understanding. To get a better idea about the place and the team, have a look at the web documentary YRS-VSS produced in 2017, following three stories of workcamp leaders, one being in Donja Toponica: http://youthleaders.online/jancha.php

Anforderungen

It is expected from participants to be creative and team players and to bring their smart mobile phones or photo cameras for the part of making photos and videos. It is possible to have vegetarian meals. They should be nature and village lovers.

After successful camps in 2016 and 2017, Gerontological Center of Belgrade became a traditional workcamps’ host. The results of previous camps were wonderful and both residents and the volunteers were satisfied and motivated to repeat similar experience. With this notion, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us at another workcamp with this enthusiastic group of people. NOTE: These are probably the coolest elderly people in Belgrade! They are talkative, playful, really into handcrafting, cooking, yoga etc. By the way, take a look at their surprising calendar for 2017 at http://www.blic.rs/galerija/naslovna/deke-i-bake-kao-tinejdzeri-korisnici-gerontoloskog-centra-beograd-vole-sve-sto-vole/rb3867e The Center is quite modern. It hosts close to 600 residents and it is the largest in the country and one of the largest in Europe. Professional staff takes care of the residents and creates an atmosphere of free and solidary community life. The idea for doing an international volunteer workcamps here arises as a need for assistance in improving the quality of life of the residents, especially during summer. Inter-generation solidarity and intercultural exchange has proven to be particularly beneficial for the residents.

Anforderungen

The volunteers should be motivated for work with elderly people (and send a project related motivation letter at the time of application), also willing to help the Center’s cleaning crew with: gardening, painting, cleaning parts of the building…

Arbeit

The main task of the volunteers will be arranging public areas in Pinosava, the suburbs of Belgrade. Volunteers will arrange the yard of the local school and also leave messages on the board for the children telling them about the importance of green areas and rules that are meant to be followed and respected. The other activity that is planned will be cleaning and maintaining grasslands. Even though just at 30 minutes from the center of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, formally being one of its municipalities, the mentality of people in the Belgrade suburbs like Pinosava is more similar to those in rural areas in Serbia rather that of the capital. The need for internationalisation and youth mobility, reflection and discussion with peers from different countries is great.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers will be accommodated in a house on the property of the Horsing club ”Aleksandar” in Pinosava. There will be three sleeping rooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and one common room. The food will be provided by the organizer and it will be mainly cooked by the volunteers themselves. We are looking forward to tasting dishes from different countries!

Lage und Freizeit

The workcamp will be held in Belgrade, in the suburban area called Pinosava. Pinosava has about 4000 inhabitants and is located in the near Mount Avala, which is a protected nature park. For nature lovers this is an ideal opportunity to get to know this part of Belgrade which is abundant with numerous plant species and beautiful scenery. One day is specifically planned for the trip to the wondrous mountain Avala, which is one of the most beautiful natural oases in Belgrade. Volunteers will have the opportunity to get to know the capital city of Serbia and its cultural and historical sites as well the social life. At the same property where the volunteers will be accommodated, they will have the opportunity to ride horses and also will be given the opportunity to learn how to take care of them. There is also a basketball court and a small football field nearby. Part of the workcamp is also a series of educational workshops and lectures in the field of environmental protection. Every volunteer can participate in these lectures by preparing of their country's national parks.
