Volunteering

Does GODWILL still exist in Slovakia?

Corruption, homicides, attacks or accidents. This is the picture of the current world tabloids usually show us. It is thus not surprising that people have a negative view about life. Did we really run out of GOODWILL in Slovakia? Do not believe it. There still is GOODWILL in Slovakia, it came last year and it will come this year, too. It will fully show in the middle of September when the Week of Volunteering 2017 starts. In respective regions of Slovakia people become volunteers and they will be able to help to particular organisations which need it. Really everyone can help. All it takes is to choose from the offer of volunteering activities.

Magic number 1111

This is the exact number of people who joined the Bratislava week of Volunteering last year. They helped where it was needed and the great results could be seen in whole Bratislava region. Together they worked for an amazing 2, 878 hours free of charge. They painted the benches, they drew fairy tale characters on the walls of centres for children. They were cleaning Petrzalka neighbourhood. During their Open House activities people could see how respective NGOs work. Or to go to the Volunteering Fair where respective NGOs had presentation about their activities. After completing all these wonderful activities all met at the GOODWILL party.
