Village With The View, Sicevo
Description: The Youth Association "Klisura" was created as an initiative of young people and enthusiasts who want to make Sicevo a better place for living, by supporting agriculture, sports, rural tourism and by motivating young people to remain living in the countryside instead of moving to bigger towns and cities. They organize cultural and sport events, renovate parks and hiking trails. This is the second time they organize workcamps in order to draw the attention of the locals on the importance of preserving the environment and creating conditions for sustainable development of rural tourism.
Type of Work: The volunteers will do a little renovation work in the village and on improving its infrastructure: the park and small sport complexes will be renovated and a panoramic podium over the great view of the surrounding will be made. The volunteers will also clean the landfill and dig 2 canals for draining stagnant water. They will also prepare, paint and set up a wooden welcoming board and the map of the village. The work consists of brushing and painting metal constructions, work with wooden materials (not on scales and only with hand tools), cutting grass and bushes. We expect significant participation of local volunteers for work and socializing, as they are eager to meet the international volunteers!
Study Theme: During free time excursions will be organized to important natural, cultural and historic sites, as well as lectures about survival in nature and the vast use of plants from nature.
Accommodation: In the local school, 500m from the workplace, with toilets and showers and real beds. No need for sleeping bags. The volunteers will prepare meals from ingredients that will be provided by the host and some eager locals already can’t wait to share their specialities!
Approximate Location: Sicevo is a small village located in the Sicevo Gorge, the area of outstanding natural beauty. It is surrounded by many monuments, springs and gardens, as well as the Sicevo cave with remains of the Neanderthal man. The World Cup in paragliding was organized in Sicevo in 2005, so imagine the surroundings! Sicevo is located near the city of Nis in the South-East Serbia.
