Hello! My name is Andrei and I want to tell you about my experience in Macedonia.
We were accommodated in a house for a period of two weeks together with other EVS volunteers.
We met the team from KRIK Center, they gave us the money, we’ve made teambuilding activities to get to know each other better, had Macedonian language lessons, and the next day we painted the benches and the table from the yard of the Center.
In another day we went to Zavod, a Center for young people with intellectual disabilities, and here we painted the flags of Romania and Turkey, we danced, we played and everything was wonderful.
I also enjoyed another outdoor activity with the young people from Zavod, when we went out to the Aquapark and we played with them in the water, ate lunch, ate ice cream and had a great time together.
During the weekend, we had two days off and visited Ohrid, the fortress, the monasteries, and the Ohrid Lake where we swam. Here we had accommodation provided by the Scout Center.
The second week, we went out in the City Park with the young people from Zavod and together with a group of French Scouts we planned many outdoor activities and played a lot of games.
On our free day we visited Matka Canyon where we had a boat trip to see the cave. It was tiring, but it was worth it.
I want to thank the Youth Offensive Association and Krik for choosing me in this project and also for trusting me. I would really like to participate in other volunteering projects in the future. Thank you!
