Volunteers will be:
• Taking part in local voluntary actions: cleanups, manual work, helping elderly people, working with kids
• Intercultural exchange: preparing presentations about your home countries, sharing your volunteering experiences
• Media: taking photos, videos, writing articles and interviews
• Fun, sightseeing, genuine experiences
Accommodatie en maaltijden
Volunteers will be accommodated in guesthouses (or host families in rare cases of absence of public accommodation in some villages). Volunteers might need to bring sleeping bags with them. In some cases, food will be organized in canteens or cafes, and in other volunteers will cook for themselves in teams according to rota.
Travel from place to place will be via mini-bus.
Locatie en vrije tijd
Would be a good idea to take playing cards, board games, musical instruments. There is a possibility for knowing more about local history and culture of Russian villages, visiting museums and communicating with local communities. Also, after or before the camp, volunteers can visit the capital - Moscow city, which is located near with Nizhny Novgorod, visit a lot of historical or modern museums, summer festivals and architectural squares.
English will be the working language for the camp, but any knowledge of Russian is more than welcome, as people usually don’t speak English.
