Integra Centre - dobrovoľnícky tábor
The volunteers will organize free time activities (e.g. workshops, trips to the lake, games, sport activities, etc.) for people with mental and physical disabilities. The activities for them will be
creative, musical, rhythmic, sport or other workshops. The ideas for the activities are invented and created by the volunteers who want to help in social integration. The camp is THE event of the year in the life of the people with disabilities and not only for them but also for the whole Integra centre. The staff of social centre will be guiding the volunteers during the work. The working hours are from Monday to Friday divided as follows 4 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon. By participating to this project you contribute to reducing inequality within and among countries (UN SDG 10).
Accomodation and food
Lodging will be provided directly in the building of the Integra centre. The volunteers will be sleeping on the matrasses which include pillows and blankets. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners will be taken care off by local partner and on request, vegetarian meals can be provided. The centre has showers, facilities, hot water and wifi connection.
Location and leisure
The capital of Slovakia – Bratislava is situated in south-western part of Slovakia next to the border with Austria and Hungary. It has a fascinating history and culture, magnificent Old Town, picturesque castle on a hill just above the city, and – last but not least – the night life has a lot to offer too ;)
The volunteers will prepare the "Feast of cultures" - an international food evenings, and will join the “volunteering footprint” workshop. Our camps will follow the rules of the Sustainability campaign.
