ESC stories. Anna Kuzmuk

Hi everyone 🙌
My name is Anna and I started my volunteer adventure on the 1st of July this year (2020) 🌍
Two weeks ago, I became a part of a European Solidarity Corps project in Riga, Latvia! And my life changed forever🤘 A new country, a new city, a new language, new friends and a new me 😃
I'm just getting started on my volunteer journey, but I really like it and I'm happy that I made up my mind 😉

During the project, I am working as a volunteer with the youngsters from the Riga Municipal Children's and Youth Center. The main tasks include individual activities, non-formal education and creative workshops, sport activities workshops and etc. 🌅🧘🏻‍♀️📚🌿

Volunteering is not only helping others but also you can upgrade yourself. Volunteering can help you make friends, learn new skills and advance your career 🔝

Now we have a football tournament between Riga Municipal Children's and Youth Centers. I'm rooting for youngsters with all my heart 💚 Healthy lifestyle, respect and fair play these are the basic concepts that we want to convey to the youngsters through the sport activities - football games 

Become a Volunteer and Change your Life and the World ✌️

ESC stories. Nuray Yaşar

As Logos EVS volunteer I spent beautiful 6 months in Poland and I want to mention my EVS journey. Everything started with an open call on a Facebook group. Logos was looking for volunteers from Turkey and I applied for it. Back then I had no idea about Logos NGO. After a successful selection process, I came to Poznan and started to support my organization at the office and the local activities. I organized workshops, made presentations at schools, attended a fair to represent Logos and etc. I met amazing people and built new friendships. I gained new skills and experiences during my voluntary service. I am glad to join to EVS program and be part of the Logos family."

Thank you Nuray and Logos wish you full of successes🤩

My 6 month Evs journey has come to an end. It was difficult for me in the beginning to adapt to a new country, new people, but thanks to LOGOS family it didnt last long 🙂 I gained new perspectives, ideas and it helped me to better understand who I am, what I like, what I enjoy.
I have experienced a lot of stuff that I wouldnt experience in my own country. I am glad that I left my comfort zone and decided to do that. Leaving my comfort zone helped me to become aware of my responsibilities more and more.
I participated to a lot of activities, events, trainings and met many wonderful people that influenced me.
I feel myself very lucky to have such and amazing experince and memories that I wouldn't forget for the rest of my life! 🙂
Thank you all for making this journey amazing, I highly recommend you to be a part of this family!

Kalimera!

Greetings from Polish team Volunteers on Tour. We have a pleasure to be participants of Eco project in Kannavia #PlanBePlanItBeIt

Our journey has started very actively. In the beginning, we had a lot of energizers and games which helped us in getting to know each other with people from other countries such as Portugal, Spain, Czechia, Germany, and Italy.

Apart from that, we have helped in the field of Mr Aleikos, who lives in the village. We could also get to know other inhabitants by walking around the village and asking what we could help them with. Some of them gave us some tasks that we will fulfil next week. All the people who live here are very hospitable, kind and humble. You simply cannot leave the house of a Kannavian without tasting some traditional dessert or cheese!

Thanks to the Host Organisation (Plan Be) we could visit Nicosia for Erasmus Festival and go hiking in the Troodos Mountains the next day.
We are sending some beautiful memories from this magical week.

To be continued.....

ESC stories. Cihat in Poznan

Hello Logos Family;
First of all, I would like to thank that you made me a part of this family even if it’s a 6-months adventure. I've learned so much I can use at every moment of my life. It wasn’t difficult to adapt to Poland life and its culture for me, of course, thanks to Logos NGO 🙂

With a nice start, I've been to a kindergarten in Poznan together with other Turkish volunteers. We tried to introduce everything about Turkish culture to children.

One of my biggest tasks at Logo NGO was to conduct interviews. We were getting applications to participate in projects like training courses, youth exchange, seminar, etc.
I supported my team in the selection stage of participants for different projects by organizing skype interviews. I had an opportunity to participate in one of the projects like this as well. Thus, I went to Paris, France in order to attend to project called ''Hate Speech'. I have briefly expressed my experiences to you.

Once again I would like to thank the Logos family for the opportunity to have these beautiful experiences.

Sincerely
Cihat TAŞCI

ESC stories. Banu’s adventures in Poznan

Hello dear my Logos family
I am Banu from Turkey. I had started my EVS adventure on the 19th of February. Last week, My amazing volunteering is finished. I've spent an amazing 6 months with Logos. Fist of all I have to say thank you to Marko Boyko who is my coordinator and all Logos Family. Thanks to them, I felt like I am at home all the time. Thanks to them, I joined a lot of youth activities, workshops, events during my EVS. Actually, I have so many people I wanna say "thanks" but before everyone else, I wanna say that "I was very lucky to have you guys" to my EVS friends who are Fatma, Ilyas, Dicle, Cihat, Abdülkadir, Merve, Ozan, and Berk.
My EVS experience has changed the perspective of my life. Currently, I am stronger than I just came to Poland. I will stay keep in touch with Logo's family for the rest of my life.
I exactly recommend you to join the Logos family. Now, this is your turn, join them and change your life.
XOXO Banu 🙂
