Activity description

"Volunteer for rural solidarities" is a volunteer project that proposes the implementation of a 8-month volunteer internship in 5 rural communities in Vâlcea County (Goleşti, Şirineasa, Păuşeşti-Măglaşi, Vlădeşti and Mihăeşti). As a result of the volunteer activities implemented by ATFPDR in rural communities over the last 4 years, we have noticed that young people in these communities are not concerned about active involvement in community life, are not interested in supporting the community through volunteering, do not have much life expectancy and are generally not interested in developing themselves or professionally. In the short term, the project aims to achieve the following goals: - providing young participants and local volunteers with clear opportunities to engage in solidarity activities; - working solidarity and personal development skills for 10 ESC volunteers and 75 other local volunteers;
