You’ll help and supervise the children everyday from 8 am to 3.30 pm You’ll create activities with the teacher’s help. You’ll support the school activities by being a part of it (different kinds of events)
A host family will greet and offer meals to the youth. He or she could help cooking, work in the vegetable garden and harvest vegetables according to an agreement with the family. If we found a larger building to host the school, there could be a room for the volunteer. Thus, he or she would be in charge of his or her meals and be nice to the organisation team and help it when the team needs it.
The project takes place in Lessive, a village in the Famenne area in Belgium. This is a beautiful village located in the countryside. The school is located near a forest, some paths and a river. This village is very active and all generations live there. The school is located about 5 kilometers from Rochefort, the nearest town. You can have a nice walk or ride a bike or a horse in the countryside. The cultural center des Roches offers many shows. You can also visit the Han caves (Grottes de Han) and animal park in Lesse. The Petit Théâtre de la grande Vie offers some activities, music and art lessons and shows to everybody. There are several projects and local initiatives too.
