A volunteering opportunity in the village of Ekinci, Turkey from July 6th to July 16th 2015

COME LIVE WITH US SHARE WITH US.

I am so excited to share that we are going to hold the 7th Servas LIVE WITH US SHARE WITH US CHILDREN PROGRAMME (LUSUP) in my village, Ekinci (3aydiy) in Antakya, Turkey.
Within this project we ask Servas people to come and volunteer in the village.
Volunteers teach kids-aged 7-14 anything they know such as peace, drama, children songs, languages, chess, Ekincipandomime, environmental issues, art, cooking, etc.
We teach in a big garden, a house yard, lovely trees garden and streets. Everywhere is a classroom for us.
The main goal of this programme is to open new windows in the local children’s lives.  Volunteers stay with local families and exchange experiences also with local people. Local people serve meals and their hospitality. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and ready to hug the volunteers.
The children and the parents are already asking for this event like every year and want to know who is coming this year. We planted seeds of Servas with children (70 kids with their parents) in 2009 and now asking you to come and water these seeds next July (6th-16th, 2015)
Would you like to share your experience and knowledge with kids? Then come and live with us …

Within the programme, we also organise workshops on peace, world citizenship, developing Servas idea, etc. for and with the volunteers.
