>>Dive: in love with these two stunning Volunteers>>

Long-term Volunteering can be challenging sometimes but is nothing too difficult for our new two candidates Aleksandra from Serbia and Belen from Spain. 

The girls freshly arrived 1/11/2018 to 04/09/2019 to dedicate their talents and efforts into the out non-formal way of education, to support our ongoing efforts of equality and freedom and creative learning but also to teach us all there is to know about their own lifestyles back at home and worldly experience, since both have done few exchanges of their own previously .

Five days, five discoveries…

It is only our fifth day in the city and we have already discovered how special this place is going to be for us. These are some of the things we have learned this week:


  1. All roads lead to Rynek.
  2. There are more kebabs than people. (Ok, that is not true, but the proportion of kebabs per km2 is remarkable).
  3. The umbrellas on Bracka Street are not for the sun. They are for rain, at least from now on, because “winter is always coming”.
  4. Offices are not always boring places and Polish radio is not bad at all, specially if Tetyana does the chorus.
  5. You start to feel that Leszno is you new home and you do not know what adventures await but you want them to happen.
