Paraplegics & quadraplegics camp for international volunteers
Description: The purpose and objective of the association is voluntary and independent grouping of paraplegics and quadriplegics in order to identify and meet their specific needs and represent their interests.
Type of Work: 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. We will also help at the local festival. They will talk with members and spend time together, play chess and cards. The volunteers will not need to help our members in a sense of personal hygiene or any other ''personal'' things. During the camp, we will organize some trips around Slovenia for volunteers and members of our association.
Study Theme: The volunteers will learn about problems of day to day life of our members.
Accommodation: The volunteers will be accommodated in a house together with our members (women have separate room).
Language: We will use Slovenian and English language.
Requirements: 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
Notes: Our association gathers members which use wheelchairs, therefore we will arrange acceptable accommodation and transport, food (please report any preferences or allergies or diets before you arrive) and other things. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, but we might make an exception once in a while.
