The volunteers will help the staff accompany people with disabilities in their daily life within the center.
Mostly, they will be involved in different activities together with the center beneficiaries as well as with the local volunteers, such as excursions, games, walks with the residents…
The project will have an important pedagogical part. Indeed, by volunteering in this project, you will learn a lot about how to care for people with disabilities of various ages.
BEWARE: some activities are organized during the week-ends and the volunteers might then have free time during the week instead.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Your team will be accommodated in a dormitory with access to showers and bathrooms. Food will be provided by the kitchen staff of the center.
