Workcamp Teisani-Olteni, Romania
Description: This is a first project of its kind in this village. It is situated in a hilly area about 100 km north from Bucharest. Once with a vibrant rural life, the village has transformed in modern life. About a third of the properties are now owned by people from nearby cities who do not actually live there. The number of children dropped dramatically with one of the school close to its closure. Furthermore, those remaining do not seem to plan a bright future there. This project is a private initiative with the support of the mayor & local council. It aims to bring the world closer to them somehow, to strengthen their strive to get good education, give a chance to speak English, understand what is valuable in their village and create the vision of what it may become in the future.
Type of Work: We will have about 20 children (aged 10-14) in the camp who will work in groups with volunteers to accomplish the following: • Discover things that are great and those questionable in their village, • Get a vision of what the place may become in the future • Initiate a cultural website for the village • Video-record some of the old people in the village about the past and transformation • Record some of the recipes of what people used to eat before but they do it now less and less. • Mark a trail for bicycles through the village and surroundings.
Study Theme: Evolution of modern humanity and keeping sanity throughout life
Accommodation: The volunteers will be accommodated in tents in a young orchid. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Meals will be provided on the spot. The place has bathroom, kitchen, Wi-Fi and a number of spots to relax.
Approximate Location: Teisani-Olteni, Romania
