About the volunteer work
The role of the volunteers within our organization is to act as support person to the activities and initiatives that already exist in the community or our NGO. They will have to bring their own motivation and plans in order to fill in the frame of these actions with meaningful, efficient content. The activity of each volunteer is constructed as follows: they will have to allocate 60-70% of their time and activity, to work on this main activity, which they choose in the selection phase. 20-30% of the time, their task will be to do common activities with the other volunteers, activities which are done around the yearly community traditions, events, happenings and holidays of the community. 10% of their time will be spent to create and do visibility materials and promotion activities for the NGO and for their own activity.
The volunteers will be housed in a rented house which has a capacity of 14 people in 6 rooms with 1, 2 and 3 beds in each, with bathroom in the hallways. The house is fully furbished: with kitchen that has 2 fridges, stove, microwave, dishes, glasses, furniture, etc. The 5 bathrooms have toilets, showers, washing machines and cleaning appliances.
