Full house #2, Belgrade
Description: This workcamp is planned to support the realization of the Summer Day Care for Children with Developmental Disabilities in Belgrade. These children have no activity during the summer and we have been implementing this summer program for the fifth consecutive year. The volunteers will help children with disabilities who are beneficiaries, as this will widen their social network of friends, will assist the employees of the stay because the work with children will be much better and access more individual and will help our entire organization to "push" this intense period Otherwise, the stay has an intergenerational approach and is inclusive, so often local children with no disabilities and other interested people of all ages come often, so is's an opportunity to share knowledge and learn.
Type of Work: Volunteers will have the opportunity to organize activities for children in the day care together with the defectologists 4 days a week. They will also assist in the organization and functionality of the inclusive centre itself (assistance with cooking, hygiene maintenance...) The rest of the time the volunteers will spend in maintaining the greenhouses, picking tomatoes as well as making homemade winter (dried tomatoes, tomato juice).
Study Theme: Volunteers will be introduced to the development and growth of a grass root organization such as ours. Also they will hear the story of our social enterprise. We encourage volunteers to share stories about similar topics from their countries.
Accommodation: Volunteers will be housed in a home near the place of work. Sleeping bags are required. Volunteers will prepare the breakfast and dinner on their own while lunch will be prepared for volunteers and beneficiaries by the staff of the organization with the help of volunteers.
Requirements: Volunteers should have a high motivation to work with groups and want to work and help. Desirable previous experience in work with young people with disabilities. A motivational letter is required. Short motivational letter is required. Introduce yourself to us, and tell us something about your motivation to participate in our work this summer.

Approximate Location: Workcamp will be situated in Zemun polje, in suburbs of Belgrade (16 km). Zemun is a particularly interesting municipality with a great tradition and touristic aspect. It is very interesting to tourists. An excursion to Zemun - tour of Gardos Gardens and the island of Lido is planned. Within their free time, volunteers can visit Kalemegdan fortress, Ada Ciganlija lake and the Belgrade city centre (since it is easily reachable by public busses) There is a swimming pool nearby and volunteers can go to the Danube and visit the Great War Island
