Work: The meaning of the pilgrimage to St. Anna is to spread the work of Benediktus among people. Volunteers will help to prepare and implement the event. The pilgrimage starts with Holy Mass and includes food and drink stalls, countless games for children, live music, theatre and much more. The work tasks will include mowing and raking grass, carrying things, setting up tents, tables and benches, cleaning, cooking, baking, frying, accompanying people with disabilities at work and in their free time, attending community meetings, selling products, making banners or doing face painting. The work will not be physically demanding and does not require any previous experience. Most of the work will be carried out outside, please, bring adequate boots and clothes that can get dirty and a raincoat.

Study part: As part of the pilgrimage, there will be a meeting with the general public and the volunteers will have the opportunity to present their culture, either in the form of theatre, fun games for children or making typical food. Other Czech and foreign volunteers also take part in the pilgrimage, with whom there will be an opportunity not only to work but also to spend free time together. During the project, volunteers have a unique opportunity to learn about the life and work of people with and without disabilities in the L'Arche community.

Location: The Benediktus community is located in the picturesque village of Modletin, between the villages of Horni Bradlo and Rusinov, in the heart of the Iron Mountains. The area consists of historically significant build-ings, which Benediktus reconstructs and uses for activities such as housing, work and cultural activities. The complex has a timbered fruit dryer, orchard and vegetable garden. Everywhere in the village, there is good phone coverage, nevertheless, the village is small so there are no services such as ATMs or pharmacies.

Leisure time: Modletin is located in the heart of the protected landscape area of the Iron Mountains that offers a wide range of activities: hiking, swimming in a nearby dam, mushroom picking, sightseeing in the area (castles, chateaux, historic villages, geomorphological formations, natural monuments), cultural events (concerts, exhibitions, openings). In the area of Benediktus it is also possible to play sports.

This project is organized in cooperation with the NGO Benediktus which is a community of people with and without disabilities. Benediktus provides social services, a daycare centre, social therapy workshops and sheltered housing, in order to involve people with disabilities in everyday life. Benediktus also creates sheltered jobs for people with altered working abilities such as drying fruits, cultivating a garden, organizing public events, or reconstructing historical buildings. The aim of the project is to help with the preparation and implementation of the largest annual cultural event, the pilgrimage to St. Anna, and to blur the lines between people regardless of their disability status. At this project, you will actively contribute to the achievement of UN SDG10 Reduced Inequalities.
