Estia Agios Nikolaos
Description: Estia Agios Nikolaos is the only life-sharing community in Greece, where adults with developmental disabilities live, work and spend their free time together with their caregivers. All our residents are Greek, and for most of them, Estia becomes their home for the rest of their lives. Our staff and volunteers are attracted from all corners of Greece and the world and are united by their wish to grow and contribute to this truly diverse community. Regular work in our workshops and our gardens, a rich cultural and social life and the building of family-like warmth, all contribute to the development and well–being of each member and the entire community.
Type of Work: The theme for the group will be to place some tanks. We will dig and built a stoned wall and stoned bases to place the tanks. The materials that are going to be used will be from the area, we will gather stones and we will use soil to make it. The placement of the tanks is a stage in our bigger task to extend our watering collecting system to water our garden. SCI volunteers might be joined by some of the long term volunteers in the Estia Agios Nikolaos. We will work 7 hours per day (from 07.00-11.00 and 17.00-20.00) and the weekends are free. The volunteers will organise themselves in their free time.
Accommodation: There will be a big hall with mattresses for accommodation. You need to bring a sleeping bag. You also need to bring sheets and towels. There are toilets and showers. The volunteers will gather and make their own breakfast. For lunch they will join the houses and for dinner a house will cook and they prepare and serve themselves.
Requirements: Good physical condition, motivation to work in a team. Respect for other members of the community and interest in learning about different cultures and people with special needs. We accept families but children should be under the responsibility of parents or guardians. We accept people with special needs and also people with disabilities.
Approximate Location: The Estia Agios Nikolaos is located in Galaxidi, Greece. It is by the sea (3-4 Km), so volunteers will be able to refresh themselves during their free time. Galaxidi is 30 km from Delphi, the famous ancient archeological site, 200 km from Athens and 100 km from Patras.
