Regional volunteer awards SRDCE NA DLANI

dobrovoľníctvo, Bratislava, BDC, Srdce na dlani

“Srdce na dlani” is the awards ceremony of Bratislava Volunteer Centre, whose aim is to raise appreciation of volunteering and its development by:

  • awarding of volunteers (individuals and groups) and their projects for their volunteering activities, which they carry out free of charge for other people in different areas of social life, development, protection of nature, culture, education, etc.
  • awarding of coordinators of volunteers
  • awarding for an extraordinary achievement or different kind of manifestation of solidarity and motivation in helping others 

In 2016 we decided to continue in a tradition of awarding volunteers, which was stopped by SAIA in 2002. Later, civic organization C.A.R.D.O. had taken up awarding again until 2011, when it changed from regional to national.
