This international language festival is organized by our project partner – NGO “Youth Esperanto Association of the Chuvash Republic”. This year it will be the 18th Festival in Cheboksary. The main aim of the Festival is to draw attention to language diversity and emphasize its value. The Festival is an important and big event in the republic where about 1000 participants of different ages take part every year.
Helping in preparing the festival; Presenting the volunteers’ culture and languages during the festival; Taking part in the festival activities; The work is done 8 hours a day, one day off per week, for the days off there are planned sightseeing excursions.
The volunteers will be hosted in host families and youth hostels. The food will be provided. No sleeping bags are needed.
The workcamp is situated in Russia, Cheboksary. The volunteers will need to fly (or arrive with any other transport: train, bus etc.) to Moscow and take the train from Moscow to Cheboksary. In Cheboksary the volunteers will be met by the Russian volunteers. Volunteers will get basic knowledge of the Russian language and the Russian culture, will get to know Russian people and Russian hospitality. As the workcamp is located in Chuvashia – a small local ethnicity to the east from Moscow – the volunteers will get a chance to learn the culture of this local ethnicity, its history and difference from the Russian Culture.
