At the moment, Renforts is developing a new space in order to offer occupational activities to their beneficiaries about the topics of environment and permaculture. Renforts also wants to offer everyone the possibility to have walks which stimulate all the five senses in this very space. Currently, a barefoot path already exists to stimulate the sense of touch.
In collaboration with the organization staff and its beneficiaries, the team of volunteers will think about a way to stimulate hearing, using for example carillons, sound walls, … and the sense of smell by planting aromatics and fragrant plants. The volunteer’s ideas are very welcome!
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Accommodation can be compared to a boarding school (Saint François complex): a corridor with double bedrooms; toilets and showers are at the same floor. No smoking inside.
Food will be arranged in the form of self-catering. Bring your recipes to enjoy ‘kitchen life’!
Locatie en vrije tijd
Marche-en-Famenne is a city in the countryside and it is also the home town of CBB! You can find everything here: schools, supermarkets, industries… But still, it is surrounded by woods, fields and small villages where the life rhythm remains rural. Liège, Namur, Brussels and Luxembourg can be easily reached by train in about one hour.

This project requests volunteers with a high level of motivation in the topic of inclusion. The volunteers must have a basic knowledge of French as they will work side by side with people with light to very light mental disabilities who do not speak English.
In order to demonstrate their motivation and French knowledge, we ask the candidate volunteers to:
• send us a short motivation letter in French (do not be afraid to make mistakes, BUT please do not use any automatic translators!)
• answer our specific questionnaire (if you do not have it yet, please ask it to your sending organization).
We will not confirm any placement request before analysing the submitted forms.
The camp language is French.
