Meeting amazing people who inspire you to do unusual things

Meeting amazing people who inspire you to do unusual things

Jakub in “KASA Gumri Centre d’accueil et de formation”, in Armenia

Almost one month ago I went to volunteer in Armenia in city called Gyumri. It’s already my second EVS project. In July and August I was on short-term EVS in Gaziantep in Turkey. I was working with Syrian and Afghan children – teaching them English and playing the guitar. Working with refugees and listening their stories full of pain and tears was not easy, but for sure it was valuable experience. I loved volunteer work, intercultular environment and travelling, so I decided not to start university this year, but go for another EVS. Now my work is a little calmer, I am a volunteer in KASA (KASA Gumri Centre d’accueil et de formation). I work with project on non-formal education. It will really start in November, now I help my project coordinator – Hermine – to prepare topics and evaluation. I have also a lot of time to travel around Armenia and Georgia and meet interesting and inspiring people, such as other EVS volunteers. I think that’s my favourite thing about EVS – meeting amazing people who inspire you to do unusual things.
