The volunteers will organize free time activities for eldery clients of the NGO Barlicka. Seniors were for the long time isolated because of pandemic restrictions and now it’s time to break the stereotype of their days. The activities will be organized during daily summer camp for clients – summer activities, little trips, competitions, creative activities, sport activities, games, walks. Most of the seniors are on the wheelchairs. On the first work day volunteers will have short training how to manage the wheelchair and they will get information about seniors from Barlicka. There are no special skills required. Important is motivation and empathy. The staff of social centre will be guiding the volunteers during the work. The working hours are from Monday to Friday divided as follows: 9:00 – 12:00 and 13:00 – 15:30. By participating to this project you contribute to reducing inequality within and among countries (UN SDG 10).
