A Volunteering Opportunity in Turkey
July 06-16th, 2018
Come Live with Us Share with us (Servas Peace School)...
I am so excited to share that we are going to hold the 10th Servas Live with us Share with Us Children Programme (LUSUP) in my village, Ekinci (3aydiy) in Antakya, Turkey. Within this project we invite Servas people to come and volunteer for children in the village. Volunteers teach children aged 7-14 anything they know such as peace, drama, music, children songs, languages, chess, pantomime, cultural and environmental issues, art, cooking, etc. We teach in a big garden, a house yard, olive trees garden and streets. Everywhere is a classroom for us in this village. The main goal of this programme is to open new windows in the local children’s lives. Volunteers stay with local families and exchange experiences with them. Families serve meals and their hospitality. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and ready to hug the volunteers. Also following the peace school we organise Cinema School for Children for the first time (17-21 July 2018)
The children and the parents are already asking for this event like every year and we want to know who is coming this year. We planted seeds of Servas with children (70 kids with their parents) in 2009 and now inviting you to come and water these seeds next July (6th-16th, 2018)
