The main goal of Land of Harmony Foundation is the inclusion of persons with disabilities into community life in different areas – education, work, independent living and, mostly importantly, leisure time activities. In this context we offer the opportunity for an international volunteer to work with mix ability groups.
The role and tasks of the volunteer:
The volunteer will be provided with the opportunity to organize and participate in activities and programs leading towards inclusion of persons with and without disability in the community. We offer space for workshops such as for example dance, painting, music, photo and video, singing, theater, hiking, sport, PC skills development and also participation in public presentation and communication with social media. The volunteer will communicate with our local volunteers and will have a space for his or her creative self-realization depending on his/her skills and talents. It could be sport activities, creative workshops, expositions, club meetings, organizing trips such as hiking, cultural events, supporting independent living, and leisure time activities.
