The volunteers will help paraplegics and tetraplegics (the members of our association). Their main job will be preparing the meals and taking care of house cleanliness. Also, they will talk with members and spend time together, playing chess, cards, and Slovenian popular game flinger. The volunteers will not need to help the members with personal hygiene. During the weekend we will attend folk festival ''Semiska ohcet'', where we'll present countries of volunteers, so please bring some material for presentation. Also, if you have any abilities (sing, play an instrument, anything), please let us know, so we can put you in the program. Each volunteer will also make a presentation of his/her country on theme evenings in the house.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

The volunteers will be accommodated in a house together with our members (women have a separate room).

Locatie en vrije tijd

Semič, Bela Krajina region.


Every year the Association of Paraplegics and Quadriplegics is organizing a week-long summer getaway for their members. They are searching for volunteers to add a bit of an intercultural element to the event. In return, the volunteers will learn what the daily life of a person with spinal cord injury looks like, about Slovenia in general, and a lot more. The camp will take place in the Bela Krajina region, which is considered a melting pot of cultures due to its location. Bela Krajina has a rich folklore tradition and a beautiful picturesque landscape. During the camp, there will be organized little tours around the region.


The association prefers people of humanistic sciences, we would be glad to accept a paraplegic or any other handicapped person that is a wheelchair user.


Please, kindly note that there is an additional incoming fee of 50€ for all volunteers applying through Partner organizations or Contacts of the SCI network. Check the status of your organization here: This fee covers hosting costs, insurance, a small travel fund to enable disadvantaged volunteers to join projects and administration costs. The fee is to be paid upon arrival at the project or online directly to the hosting branch. There is no additional fee for volunteers coming from SCI Branches and Groups, since the costs are included in the amount paid to the sending
