More info see on our web: We are Ecumenical council of churches - program DOBRO with 10 years of experience. We serve as coordinating organization who leads the whole program. The volunteers are placed in the various host organizations according their skills and openness. More info about the centers are available:


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteers share flats in the center of Bratislava and create one community. The flats have their kitchen so volunteers can cook on their own. Some centers where we host volunteers offer also a lunch. If there is a need the volunteer gets monthly public transport ticket for his/her activities so she can travel in the city for free. The centers in Senec, Zilina and Presov offer the accommodation in its center.


Training during the project

Besides the regular daily activities focused mainly on working skills, developing creativity, self-discipline, etc. Program also concentrates on non-formal learning and supervision, and organizes additional seminars and supervision meetings with volunteers. We use various methods for workshops:discussions, fun activities, arts and crafts, music. Volunteers are working in their centers (O) during their working time. In Bratislava we offer a possibility to try also some other activities in Os we cooperate with in the EVS area. This possibility helps to gain new skills and experience.
