The local host of this project is a German non-profit association called DJO (Deutsche Jugend in Europa – German Youth in Europe). They provide a self-catering educational centre for school classes, youth groups, musical or churchly associations as well as other NGOs who use these rooms for meetings, festivals or trainings. In past years, the host was able to restore and improve the outside area of the house with the help of international workcamps. This year they are looking forward to welcoming you again to help them make the centre even more beautiful
