One of my greatest experiences (EN) - ESK
Working as an ESC Volunteer in IniciativAngola gave me the opportunity to be a part of the many charity and non-formal educational activities that the organization carries out throughout the year, especially for the children and people in need in Angola. It was one of the greatest experiences for me to work in an international environment, meet many people, explore many countries and cities, gain so many international friends and get to know their cultural characteristics. Working and interacting with the bilingual Austrian-Slovenians living in the region of Carinthia (so called Carinthian Slovenes) was especially interesting for me as well as get to know their history, roots, gastronomy and the language.
Besides that, I had a possibility to meet the people who help the Ukrainians and working in one of the friendliest environments.
One of my favorite parts were the Erasmus+ Youth Exchanges that the IniciativAngola carries out throughout the year. We hosted youngsters from Europe and have a lot of interesting activities and workshops with them. The topics of the Youth Exchanges corresponded to the current reality that the world is facing today. Moreover, it helped me to get deeper into it. Furthermore, those projects made me even more friends.
I am very grateful for this year and for the organization to give me this opportunity. I am deeply sure that IniciativAngola will keep doing its best and we will be in touch.
