THERAPEUTIC HORSE BACK RIDING, 3 MONTHS EVS IN GREECE

Volunteering projects

project description

Kefiap - Center of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is a service of the hospital in Kalamata. Through many activities and therapyes (art workshops, music therapy, dance, cooking workshop, swimming pool, massage room…) this therapeutic center improves the overall health and quality of life of people with physical, mental, or emotive disorders or handicaps.
Therapeutic riding is a rehabilitation programm for the children with physical and mental hanidcaps, where the horse is the therapeutic medium. The horse becomes an extension of their own body; it helps them venture into new experiences and discover unprecedented feelings: the pleasure of a ride or the thrill of a walk in the countryside, or, mainly, that precious sense of movement and personal independence.
The role of the volunteer is to undertake tasks in collaboration with the Greek volunteers that already work there and the enrichment of those tasks with more and newfound initiatives.
