PARTENAIRE

L’Inc’Rock BW Festival was born in the municipality of Incourt in 2005. This festival has grown over the years and there are more and more people who come. It has gained fame and this is an advantage. It is an event you cannot miss in Wallonia since it gives a hint of what summer festivals will be ! It is organized around three days. Those will be three days of music on three stages (one outside) with more than 40 concerts, animations, and a great atmosphere. There will be rock, urban, hip hop and French music as well as new groups. Moreover, it will give a predominant place to Wallonia and Brussels artists. World-famous artists will also perform. In addition, a firework show, a VIP area and a camping site will be organized. Check the website for the news : http://www.incrock.be/

TRAVAIL

With more than 10,000 people in three days, the area of the festival is very dirty. So, three days before the festival starts, volunteers are going to help install stand, tables, barriers, and so on. During the festival, volunteers could enjoy the festival and could be behind the bar and serve beers or food. You could also be in front of the stage to secure the area. After the festival, you will clean the area and help uninstall the area. You will collect and recycle the waste to give a nice and safe ground to the festival-goers. You will discover various sides of the organization of a festival. The volunteers are young people (18-35 years old) who want to work OUTSIDE and live in a VERY BASIC CAMPING. You have to be flexible and enthusiastic. You CANNOT have any physical condition. And most important, you must love music!

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

You need to bring all the things that might be useful because you will not be able to buy anything during your stay over there!! You must think about bringing material to fix your tent in case it breaks. You must absolutely bring everything you need. If you do not have all the needed material, you might end up sleeping outside in the mud. All meals are included.

BESOIN SPéCIAL

Boots or walking shoes (you might prefer not to take too nice shoes because you might get VERY dirty). Don’t forget, everything will take place outside. Working clothes (for the construction work), and comfortable clothes (for the festival). Summer clothes AND winter clothes because it can get really warm or really cold or very rainy or all of them together!! Volunteers need to bring clothes that dry really really fast because if you get wet, you might have to change clothes various time a day. If you think about bringing clothes that dry fast, you will not end up with only wet clothes left. If you are sensitive to noise, you can bring earplugs. They might be really useful because it gets very noisy during the festival. Working with a headache is not really nice and sleeping in the noise either!

Later known as Leningrad, the city is closely associated with the October Revolution. Its architectural heritage reconciles the very different Baroque and pure neoclassical styles. At this time of the year, the city hosts a variety of festivals, concerts and folk events. Each year millions of tourists come to St.Petersburg for walking at night along the Neva River, watching the bridges raise. The group of people from different countries will be formed as in ordinary work camp, including living and spending leisure time together, but the main idea of the project is to allow volunteers improve their Russian by taking lessons in informal study.

PARTENAIRE

Reykjavik is a city full of energy, just waiting for you to experience it. Powered by heat from the earth below, with ever-changing weather sweeping across the landscape, its natural features are matched by the energy of its residents. Think of the qualities of a great city – fun, culture, nature, clean air – and Reykjavik has them in spades. All the advantages of a modern, forward-looking society are complemented by the beautiful natural setting. In a country of only just over 300,000 people, the Reykjavik capital area has a population of about 200,000. However, since it’s the only major city in the country, Reykjavik has a lot of the amenities that you would only expect to find in a much larger center elsewhere in the world. Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city and is centered on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Arrive at the right time of year, and in favorable conditions you will see the city’s skyline silhouetted against the glowing, shimmering curtain of the aurora borealis, also known as the northern lights. Reykjavik is framed by the majestic Mt. Esja and the blue waters of Faxafloi Bay to the north, while rugged lava-fields spread to the southeast. On a clear sunny day, the Snaefellsjökull glacier glitters on the western horizon like a crystal.

TRAVAIL

The organization has a farmhouse on the outskirts of Reykjavik, 15 km from the center of the capital. Since the creation of Worldwide Friends, the organization has been looking an opportunity to set up a project that aims to promote sustainable living. Volunteers will do some renovating in the house and on the property, and take care of the work in the farm. We have few chickens, a cat, a greenhouse for growing herbs and vegetables and a piece of land where we grow potatoes, carrots and lettuce. All the vegetables grown in the farm are consumed by the volunteers living in the farm. Volunteers will help with all tasks related to the farm, as the work varies depending on the season. This year we will also have special topics to discuss in the workcamps. Volunteers will do some researches and share the knowledge related to the topics. A Sustainable Living is a good, useful and practical way to learn and use actions which reduce your environmental footprint. It gives you better living skills for a healthier lifestyle and a new approach to make better consumer choices. The main topics that we will explore are: growing food in your home, smart food shopping, food wasting, recycling, eco-building design, water efficiency, avoiding toxic chemicals and lower-carbon transport options.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

Worldwide Friends volunteers will be staying in our house in Sveinsstadir, which is located on the outskirts of Reykjavik. This place is like a farm in the city, so you can enjoy pure nature and the city life of the capital at the same time. Volunteers need to bring their own sleeping bags and towels, but beds/mattresses and bed linens are provided. Wireless internet access is provided free of charge and volunteers also have free access to shared desktop computers in communal areas. Food is included for the duration of the workcamp, however everyone is expected to do their fair share of the cooking and cleaning. Since it is always nice to try new and different dishes, volunteers are encouraged to bring along their favorites recipes from home!

SITUATION

On weekends, the volunteers can enjoy Reykjavik‘s amazing nightlife, which is world-renowned for its wide array of bars, clubs, and concerts. WF Iceland will also organize reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, geysers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents, or even icebergs. Flights arrive at Keflavik International Airport (KEF), just south of Reykjavik, Iceland. WF Iceland will offer a minibus trip from Reykjavik to Sveinsstadir for 60 euros, which includes the Golden circle South Iceland excursion and the return from the farm to Reykjavik after the camp.

TRAVAIL

This project is located in the beautiful Westfjords of Iceland. This is the 8th year SEEDS organises a project with the support of these local hosts, who are a family that have taken up a former farm in the valley and are developing new opportunities in the remote area. They live and work there all year round running diverse facilities and offering services for visitors. The main tasks of this project is to help with fencing tasks in the area, including helping to clear out old fences, repair some fences and put new ones in place. Volunteers will also do some other small tasks, aimed towards beautifying the isolated area. The schedule of this camp is very flexible and it will depend on the needs of our local hosts and on weather conditions. This is a very isolated place with limited mobile/internet connection. The work can be very demanding but also rewarding. Volunteers should have a motivation for working outdoors. Weather in Iceland is unpredictable, so be prepared for all kinds of weather and be sure to bring warm/winter clothing since the work will take place outdoors and it can get cold. In the evenings and during the free days there will be enough time to explore the surroundings, trekking and walking, as you will be able to rest in the natural hot tubs, bathe in the local swimming pool and discover many other surprises of this beautiful place, possibly including horseback riding on the unique Icelandic horses and kayaking in the fjords.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

SEEDS volunteers will stay in a fully equipped flat, in a sleeping bag accommodation, sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening.

SITUATION

The project takes place in the Westfjords at the north-western part of Iceland. This area in the Western fjords is famed for its beautiful landscape and friendly weather with sunny summers. The Westfjords are very mountainous; the coastline is made by dozens of fjords surrounded by steep hills. In the area you will be able to explore the whole range of Icelandic flora from the shore and meadows, through birch to mossy moors. On the shore, one can see birds, seals, whales and then an occasional arctic fox around the sheep. Fishing is traditionally the main industry in the region but tourism started to be more and more important as local and foreign visitors are discovering this region in rising numbers. The distances to the next town and villages are 130 Km to Ísafjörður and 90 Km to Hólmavík. The Westfjords account for 10% of the country’s surface but only about 8000 people live there, so it is one of the least populated areas of Europe. The camp is located at a place of extreme beauty. SEEDS volunteers will have the opportunity to visit the local pool and weather allows, horseback riding and kayaking around a seal colony can be organised. Volunteers need to be prepared for physical and outdoor work in this workcamp. Volunteers should be motivated to experience life in a very isolated part of Iceland.

BESOIN SPéCIAL

English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed. Participation fee EUR 150 (Euros). This fee is paid to SEEDS on arrival in Euros or Icelandic krónas and it does not include the transportation from/to Reykjavík to/from the camp.

Hveragerði is a small town of about 1,700 inhabitants that lies 45 km east of Reykjavík. This friendly little community sits on top of a highly active geothermal field, which provides heat for hundreds of greenhouses where fruit, flowers and vegetables are produced throughout the year. Even bananas grow in these greenhouses! The name Hveragerði means “hot springs garden”. Geothermal energy is Hveragerði’s lifeline and chances are you won’t find such a natural wonder in the middle of a populated area anywhere else in the world. Nearby you will find an even more geothermally active site: Gufudalur, the lovely “Steam Valley” behind the town. This whole valley is full of hot springs, geysers, mud pots, fumaroles and steaming vents. Our host is the Rehabilitation and Health Clinic, which is a part of the Natural Health Association of Iceland. Every year approximately 2,000 patients and other guests enjoy their diverse rehabilitation programs, which are focused on an approach that builds self-confidence and personal responsibility for the patients’ own health. The Clinic has earned a solid reputation, both in Iceland and internationally, since its foundation in 1955 for personal and effective care of patients. It is one of the two most important rehabilitation clinics in Iceland. In the last years this ongoing camp has been the most popular camp in our organization.

TRAVAIL

The Natural Health Association has a horticultural and environmental department, including forestry, gardening, and greenhouses, which is where Worldwide Friends volunteers work most of the time. The volunteers will help with growing the tomatoes, cucumbers and making tea made of Icelandic herbs. They will have the opportunity to work in the kitchen and other areas in the association, if needed. The nature of the work depends largely on weather conditions, which can change quickly. Volunteers should bring clothes appropriate for outdoor work, but also clothes for working inside the warm greenhouses. The working hours are usually from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., including a one-hour lunch break.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

Worldwide Friends volunteers will be staying at a fully equipped bungalow consisting of several double bedrooms and a living room. Beds are provided, however volunteers need to bring their own sleeping bags. Free wireless internet is available during evening hours, but volunteers need to bring their own laptops, if they would like to connect to it. All meals are provided and cooked by our hosts, the Rehabilitation and Health Clinic. The menu for the project is primarily vegetarian, but two times a week it includes locally caught fish. The food at the Rehabilitation and Health Clinic is known throughout Iceland for its high quality. The standard of food and accommodation does not get better than in this camp.

SITUATION

Worldwide Friends volunteers have free access to the local geothermally-heated swimming pools. Traditionally, natural pools have played an important social role in Icelandic culture. Most Icelandic pools offer indoor and outdoor swimming, as well as hot tubs and saunas or steam rooms. Hveragerði is known for having great areas for hiking, including a river heated by hot springs. WF Iceland will also organize reasonably-priced weekend excursions to some of the most popular, beautiful areas and natural wonders that Iceland has to offer. Excursions include unique Icelandic sights such as glacial lagoons, waterfalls, volcanic and geothermal areas, glaciers, geysers, lava forests, hot-springs, rhyolite mountain ranges, steam-vents, or even icebergs. Flights arrive at Keflavik International Airport (KEF), just south of Reykjavik, Iceland. WF Iceland will offer a minibus trip from Reykjavik to Hveragerði for 60 euros, which includes the Golden circle South Iceland excursion and the return back to Reykjavik.

TRAVAIL

Our host for this project is a farmer’s family on the south shore of Iceland close to the town of Vík, the farmers cultivate carrots and keep cows. This is the sixth year that SEEDS volunteers will have the unique opportunity to get to know and explore this traditional Icelandic farm. There will be various tasks, depending on the weather, some cleaning tasks, for instance clearing fields of rocks, fences, trash, beautifying the area around and removing an invasive species called – Rumex Longifolius; which has been used in Iceland in order to control soil erosion and revegetate eroded areas; but in some places its spread is more than desirable and being a foreign specie endangers the native species. This weed can remain viable for a long time, is helpful for vegetative reproduction, and adaptable to different environments. It is primarily a weed of grassland, and in this habitat it benefits from agricultural practices which lead to disturbance or eutrophication. It reduces production from the field and lowers the feeding value of the grass to the animals. Those who are interested can help out with farm activities, such as taking care of the animals, cultivating potatoes and vegetables. Participants are invited to take a look at the cows in the stalls, assist in milking them if interested or just tending to them in general. The group will also be taking care of trees, cutting and planting them. The weather conditions in Iceland are unpredictable, also in May it could feel cold. Be prepared to experience all kinds of weather and be sure to bring warm clothing.

LOGEMENT &NOURRITURE

SEEDS volunteers will stay in an equipped flat, in a sleeping bag accommodation, sharing rooms. Please bring your own sleeping bag. Volunteers will receive food supplies and be in charge of cooking and cleaning. Do not forget some traditional/typical food from your home country for the international evening.

SITUATION

The farm is located in the South of Iceland, in a beautiful area surrounded by mountains and glaciers to the north and near the Atlantic Ocean to the south. The closest town is Vík. The inhabitants here live in constant threat of volcanic eruptions and the area was covered by ashes during the recent eruptions in Eyjafjallajökull 2010 and Vatnajökull (Grimsvötn) in 2011. Vík is Iceland?s southernmost village. Mýrdalur is bordered by the glacial river Jökulsá to the west and the river Blautakvísl to the east. Its northern border is the Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which caps the volcanic Mt. Katla, while its southern limits are the black sand beach and the rolling Atlantic waves. The district lives mainly by agriculture. Although this community of 600 inhabitants faces the open Atlantic, Vík is the only seaside settlement in Iceland left without a harbour due to natural circumstances. Among the many attractive aspects of Vík, are the trips to the South shore and to Mýrdalsjökull glacier.

BESOIN SPéCIAL

English will be the language in the camp; basic conversational skills are needed. Volunteers have to bring good working shoes and clothes, even though summer is coming, it might still be cold and hats and gloves might be necessary.

The main house in Eskifjörður used to be the village school. It is more than 100 years old. In the last years, hundreds of international volunteers have spent time in that house. The second house in the same village is a harbor house, which used to be a workstation for fishermen in the old days. Last winter the house got damaged by strong winds and needs to be repaired. The plan is to rebuild the house and use it in the organization. This work camp gives you the opportunity to spend an amazing time in Iceland with other international volunteers and to have an incredible experience where participants share their knowledge with each other while exploring creativity, environmental issues and intercultural learning. Our work will also depend on weather conditions and that’s why we have to be flexible.

Nutrition is a key factor in recovery and restoration of low immune systems – the dogs receive a balanced diet of freshly prepared food. You can make dogs walk outside morning and evening, are free in the compound during the day, and secured in the kennels at night. They are vaccinated and spayed/neutered when they regain health. Community Work: In the Kopan area many dogs are free-roaming, whether individually owned, or community dogs. A holistic approach, based on the participation of the local people, aims to change attitudes and improve the welfare of all dogs in the community. Raising awareness among community people is one possible work for volunteers. Hospice Care: Many dogs come into the shelter in a critical condition. The centre try to improve their quality of life by providing ongoing care for the chronically ill, injured, disabled, abandoned, neglected and aged to save them from suffering and dying on the street.

2005 by a diverse group drawn from development workers, educationalists, social activists and other
professionals.
VIN’s mission is to empower marginalised communities, with a focus on women and children,
through enhanced educational programs and community training to promote equality, economic
well-being and basic human rights.
Community Focused Programmes
VIN has a main community based pilot project in Jitpur, a rural community 11km from Kathmandu city.
The area was chosen because of its geographical location, lack of development agencies, people
interest, and its development needs. VIN has established 4 key programmes in Jitpur:
 Women’s Empowerment
 Children’s Development
ï‚· Youth Development
ï‚· Community Health
The organization’s objective is for these programmes to be run by the Jitpur community (independently of
VIN) by 2012. Our community volunteering projects are based on around above 4 major programmes.
Out of Community Support Programmes
VIN runs a number of other volunteer placement programmes not directly related to the Jitpur community
but indirectly these programmes still contribute to our main programs. The programmes include:
ï‚· Teaching English at Buddhist monasteries / nunneries
ï‚· International journalism
ï‚· Environment, conservation and agro forestry
ï‚· Orphanage support
ï‚· Working with disable people (e.g., deaf, elderly)
