Veliki Žitnik, Croatia
Summary what was this volunteering project about:
Volunteers got an amazing oportunity to learn languages in an environment of non-formal education, getting out of their everyday routine and embracing new ways of learning through active involvement. They also took part in community service to help locals with their everyday needs.
There were 4 English lessons implemented in the local school in Gospić which volunteers developed, planned and organised together. They also helped locals with their everyday needs as a part of community service, as well as organising a family day event for local families to spend a day together with us. A little work at our educational center were also be done to prepare it for winter!
