Zavod Manipura is a small NGO with a lot of experiences in EVS.

What can you do at our place?

Our Children and Youth Centre is open for children and younsters from Wednesday till Saturday during the school
days and from Monday till Friday during the school holidays. We organise creative activities, playing time, handicrafts, sport games, baking activities, fairytales and other workshops for preschool and school children. It is
always interesting if the volunteers prepare a presentation of their country. Once a week we prepare workshops for people with dissabilities and once a month for the children from the local kindergarten and primary school. The ideas of the volunteers are very welcome and we help the volunteers to work on their own individual project. It can be a workshop, decoration of a wall, constructing something practical, making a movie…
There is also a lot of practical work: helping with cleaning and renovating the house, constructing playing material
for the playground, wooden games and small furniture. We take care of the animals (cats, rabbits, hamster, goats)
and of the veggie‘s garden. There is a lot of grass to cut and fruit trees to take care of. And of course a lot of
snow to clean in the winter. The volunteers have many opportunities to learn new skills, to be useful and creative!
