Sylwia, our coordinator, has just returned from the 1st working meeting in Czadca, Slovakia. The meeting, 16-19 February, was a part of a project "Innovative and Creative Youth Empowerment" between KERIC from Slovakia, Maailmanvaihto from Finland and us, which is co-financed by Erasmus+.
During the meeting the organisations talked about their local EVS partners and possible ways of supporting them better. In conclusion the next step was planned: to run a survey among the local EVS partners about good practices, challenges and needs in cooperation with volunteers. To have a better view of the situation 2 local partners from Finland and us were invited. The group also visited 2 local host organisations: nursing home for the elderly and a foundation supporting disabled people in developing independence.
