Global Education Camp April 14 - 24

The Global Education Project Camping will take place in April this year. We will host students from secondary schools and international volunteers during a residential training, as well as several human library events. This year, 6 schools from all across the city will participate in the program. Human Library is an interactive and fun method for students to learn more about different cultures. If you have an interesting story to tell or would like to help us out during this camp, you are most welcome!

Happy New Year!

We wish all of our members a happy new year of the monkey! May it be a year full of joy, adventures, kindness and the spirit of volunteering - a year, in which we all make a contribution to a more peaceful world together!
