Green Fingers


What did you do during your stay in Croatia? What were your tasks?

We made workshop for kids, and if we weren’t with the kids, or were doing fun / great tasks for them, we were gardening.the children were elementary school students.

And if we didn’t do these things, we worked on personal projects. Which could have been for our volunters members or also for the kids.

What was your favourite thing about working and living in the community, and what was challenging for you?

I don’t really know what my favorite part was.

I loved the whole team, it was interesting to see how different we are ,but the same. perhaps the best part about working with them to create something was the best.

What has volunteering given you??

It’s a question I would have a hard time answering, I’ve experienced a lot of things, or I’ve learned. Nor is it ..I learned rather developed a lot, especially in the emotional field. it was an amazing 2 months

What did you do in your free time?

I mostly spent my free time with my volunteers , we discover up the city together, we wandered together. I wasn't really alone, they always came up with something new.

What are your plans after the project?

I am currently staying in my home country in Hungary and trying to look for a job. But I am thinking of a long-term project.

Would you recommend the experience of international volunteering to someone?

Yes of course . It can help people a lot, it can help you find a goal, so i can recommend it because it’s a great experience for people.
