Natsumi from Japan is in Pultusk for her first Workcamp !


I am Natsumi Takahashi, I am from Japan, I am 21 years old and I study English, Culture and Communication at the University in Osaka.

Yes, it's me : Natsumi !

I'm  taking part in workcamp where we play with children in a day care center in Pultusk. I joined this workcamp because I like children and I wanted to go in Europe. This workcamp is the first time for me. Also, I've never worked with children before so I was nervous on the first day. But children are very friendly even if we don't talk fluently when we communicate with each other.

Very nice !

The activities with children are so tiring that I go to sleep early at night, but the time I spend with the kids is valuable for me.

In addition, I learn about team work. Living with other volunteers who came from various countries is a new experience. It is interesting because I can get to know about other countries' culture, ethnic food, music, customs, thinking, etc.

Miam, miam : polish kielbasa !

The longer time I spend with the volunteers, the more I integrate with them.

It is good for me to join this workcamp in Pultusk !

Our Polish voluteer : Agnieszka !


I'm Agnieszka :) I'm Polish, I'm 24 and I live in Warsaw. I study Applied Linguistics at the University of Warsaw, specialisation in Translation and Teaching.

I've decided to join the workcamp in Pułtusk because I've already had some experience in working for volunteering projects abroad and this time I wanted to see what it's like to help international students to carry out the project in my own country.

Agnieszka and the kids !

So far, I've enjoyed the workcamp a lot, both in terms of the activities we're involved in and when it comes to people I've met - together with French, Italian and Japanese volunteers, we work in a community day care center (świetlica), helping to organise the activities for children who joined the summer half-camp. We make a great team; we share our knowledge and experience, brainstorm ideas and have a lot of fun as well :)

Looking forward to the next week - we're organising various interesting events in Pultusk and we hope there are going to be many people joining us and enjoying the activities!

Do zobaczenia! :)

Workcamp n°2 in Pultusk : Elisa presents herself !


I'm Elisa, an Italian volunteer who takes part in the International Workcamp in Pultusk, with  Centrum Międzynarodowej Wymiany Mlodzieży i Wolontariatu, the association from Pultusk.
I'm 22 and I love working with children. In Italy I studied Education and now I work as social worker for people with intellectual disabilities. I also work with children as an animator.

Hi ! It's me : Elisa !

I decided to come for this camp because I love children and I want especially to profit from this international experience. I am also interested in discovering new places and trying new things.

Here in Pultusk I feel very well. Working with children is exciting, I'm learning new things every day. Even if the children doesn't speak English we can understand each other very well.

I think this exchange is an invaluable experience, it is very important for me to grow up.
In particular I enjoy playing games with children and laugh with them.

Provare per credere!
