Location: Yerevan, Armenia
Period: 01/05/2017 – 30/04/2018
Deadline: 20 March 2017
HUJ – Voluntary Service of Armenia is looking for Belgium and Estonia volunteers who are willing to work with children and is ready for new challenges.
As one of the stages of the development of the rehabilitation medicine an Integration Kindergarten was opened in 2002 on the grounds of Republican Pediatric Rehabilitation Center.
The organisation has a many-years experience of hosting international volunteers for short (international summer workcamps) and long term (EVS volunteers). The staff of the Center is well experienced in working with the volunteers and providing them with a rich learning experience. The activities implemented by the organisation are in line with objectives of this project and will contribute to a fruitful flow of the project.
As a good example of most successful projects of EVS volunteers we may give the opening of the Happy Room in the Center, where the volunteers work with children and create an ambiance of being away from the Center and letting the kids to forget they are in the process of receiving treatment.
