EVS Volunteers needed for projects in Czech Republic

 

Volunteer in International Volunteering section
Every year INEX-SDA organize over 35-40 international voluntary workcamps across the Czech Republic where a group of local and foreign volunteers support ecological, social or cultural-historical community projects. To Czech volunteers we offer voluntary projects of our partners worldwide for a period of 2 weeks up to one year. By organising international voluntary projects, educational programs and campaigns we assist to the development of a tolerant and open society and encourage an active and responsible approach to the world around us both locally and globally. We create space in which people can gain new experience, expand their skills and develop their own views of the complexity of the world around them. We believe that volunteering is an asset, beneficial for all individuals and communities involved and we strive to promote volunteering and its perceptions as a way to tolerance, recognition and a sustainable future.

Volunteer in Education section, mainly with project Fotbal pro rozvoj (Football for Development)
The overall objective of the project is to contribute towards the enhancement of global responsibility of the Czech citizens using football as an effective tool to raise awareness about global issues.
The specific objectives are:
1) to contribute towards strengthening the dialogue between the global North and global South and 2) to increase the awareness about global issues and development cooperation.
The main activity of the project is a campaign: Kicking for the better world! The campaign takes place in June/July each year in few regions of the CZ. It consists of football tournaments, street shows, workshops cultural events, public screenings, debates and exhibitions. The event is run by youth organizations, Kenyan-Czech football team and volunteers
