The aim of this workcamp is not only to raise volunteers’ awareness about migration issues and enable them to have a personal approach to this topic, but also to bring a blast of fresh air to the residents of the centre.
Volunteers will be asked to propose and organise activities for the different kind of persons living there: activities and workshop for kids and/or adults, sport, “world meal”, evenings, …
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the daily life of the centre through meetings and awareness raising moments with the staff in order to understand the daily work of such a place.
They might also participate in some manual work such as sorting clothes donation or maintenance tasks of the buildings.
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Volunteers will sleep in a big room which will be turned into a mixed dormitory. Showers and toilets will be available.
Volunteers will have their meals in the restaurant of the centre with the residents.
If you have a special diet, please let us know in advance.
