Association Barlicka (Little crutch) has been working with young people with physical disabilities since 1999 by establishing a centre to help them live independently. The association has been offering: activities in a social centre on a daily basis; practical school; courses (theatre, dance, music, PC, etc.). Later they also built a centre for mothers and services for elderly people. The workcamps have been organized in Barlicka centre since 2013.
The volunteers will organize free time activities for young people with disabilities from the NGO Barlicka. The centre has been working with people with disabilities for 16 years, trying to help them to live independently. The activities for young people with physical disabilities will be organized during the daily summer camp – summer activities, trips, competitions, and games. The volunteers will use non-formal education activities to encourage recycling and energy saving.
The workcamp will be visited by INEX Messenger who will organize a workshop focused on current events in Europe. The volunteers will prepare the "Feast of cultures" - an international food festival for the local community, and will join the “volunteering footprint” workshop. Our camps will follow the rules of the Sustainability campaign.
Lodging will be provided in the centre of the NGO Barlicka, on beds. Sleeping bag is needed. Volunteers will be in charge of preparing the food. On demand, vegetarian meals can be provided.
