About the local hosting organizationThe workcamp is the part of a bigger project aimed to promote sustainable living, personal growth and PEACE. The aim of the camp is to bring together participants from Ukraine and other countries where they can learn and practice living/working together in respect to each other and environment. During two weeks more than 15 hours of training courses will be devoted to understand deeper the nature of conflict and give answers to the question “What prevents us from having inner and outer PEACE?” All received knowledge can be applied immediately during the volunteer work with others and the special time for reflections, feedbacks, sharing to take new skills, insights and experience back home.

The main volunteer tasks include any kind of work to help in preparing the resort before the season starts in June like gardening, cleaning up (the coast, houses, nearby territory), arts and crafts for hand-made souvenirs, help in the kitchen, repairing, painting, maybe some construction, etc. No special skills are needed.
