Accommodation, food and transport arrangements


Volunteers are going to live in 2 separate flats (2 persons per flat) on the same floor, right above the office. Each will have an individual bedroom, and the living room with a kitchen, and a bathroom will be shared.

Volunteers will receive pocket money and food money every month.

There is no local transportation in the town. It is small, so you can reach any place by foot (30 minutes from one end of the town to the other).

Volunteer profile


The project requires open-minded, sociable and easy-going people. We are looking for 2 male and 2 female participants who are cheerful and assertive. The volunteers need to know how to work in a team and to come up with creative ideas. Candidates should be independent and friendly.

The candidates also have to be prepared to live in a small town (around 6500 inhabitants) in a rural area, and should take this into consideration when applying for the project.

*Drivers licence is an advantage.
