Make A Granny Smile I
Description: The project is organised in cooperation with the charity foundation for helping elderly people “Old age is a joy” and a retirement house in Tver region in Vyshniy Volochek city (300 km from Moscow). 500 residents live in this house. Charitable Foundation "Old age is a joy" grew from volunteer movement, whose main task was to improve the lives of older people in nursing homes and the reduction of emotional vacuum in which the elderly people find themselves. They believe that all older people, regardless of their profession and marital status, deserve a decent life in old age.
Type of Work: Minor repairs in the rooms of residents. Many of them haven’t left their rooms for ages, and that is why the interior is very important for them. Volunteers should be interested in spending time with the residents, taking them for a walk, listening to their stories, talking to them because grannies and grandpas do not get much of attention and miss the sympathy and interest of other people.
Study Theme: On weekends and free time river rafting, hiking, different excursions.
Accommodation: Volunteers live in dormitory with all facilities in 10 min walk from the retirement house. Volunteers cook breakfast and dinner themselves, have lunch in canteen.
Requirements: Bring your own sleeping bag, working clothes and your ideas for intercultural workshops.
Approximate Location: Vyshniy Volochek city is located 300 km from Moscow.
