Volunteering

Has already someone open his heart to you?

Everyone needs someone who can help him in difficult situations whatever it is. It is a great feeling. Help us to find people who help others voluntarily and selflessly. We want to award them.

Bratislava Volunteer Centre wants also this year award volunteers or volunteers´ coordinators who decided to devote their time to a meaningful activity throughout the whole year in Bratislava region. Srdce na dlani award should enhance the status of volunteering and its development. We want to show that volunteering makes sense not only to those who are helped but also to volunteers themselves. Results of their help are influencing everyone around. To be able to award the right persons we need you and your nomination.
