The volunteers will organize and lead different activities for the residents adults, teenagers and children but: sport, handicraft and art workshops, cooking, visits, etc. At the beginning of the project, the group will set up a planning of activities and everyone will be able to propose activities in which he/she feels at ease. It’s is really interesting for the residents to propose activities they are not used to. The presence of the volunteers allows relieving the parents a little.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
As the center being is at its maximum hosting capacity, the accommodation of the volunteers will have to be organized outside of the center in a place to be determined (in the premises of the neighboring association, in a tent or in a building in the village of Natoye). Take a mattress and a sleeping bag with you.
Locatie en vrije tijd
The center “Le Relais du Monde” is located, 300 meters from the Natoye train station, in a 10 ha domain. Natoye is a village located near Namur.
A MOTIVATION LETTER IN FRENCH is requested. To enjoy working in teams. Volunteers with an experience with kids and/or creative volunteers are particularly welcome. Volunteers are encouraged to be flexible and able to adapt to the changing conditions of life in the center.
Only for volunteers from 20 years old. Not accessible to wheelchairs.
For your information, the budget granted to the Centers for Asylum Seekers was drastically reduced in 2014. Volunteers are then encouraged to realize activities at a lower cost and those who want can bring material with them.
The budget for the food is also very restricted for the resident, this aspect can be an issue for some volunteers (not very various and delicious). Please take some food with you if you think it can be a problem.
