• Diverse renovation works will be carried out together with the technical team of the centre (for instance: renovation of some bedrooms, cleaning, painting, renovation of the outdoor equipment,...)
• Activities for the residents organized with the workers in order to understand better the way the centre works such as sport competitions (badminton, indoor football,...), cooking activities, entertainment activities for adults : board games, film club, after school homework help program (for children and teenagers of the centre)
ACCOMMODATION: Volunteers will sleep in small chalets with the centre. Showers and toilets will be provided.
FOOD: Volunteers will have their meals in the restaurant of the centre with the residents. If you have a special diet, please let us know in advance.
Why we recommend: This project will not only raise your awareness about migration issues but also to enable you to have a personal approach to this topic. Your presence will bring a breath of fresh air to the residents of the centre and you will gain much more than you can imagine.
