Descrizione dell'attività

Every December, right in the heart of subtropical Katerini, we set up a large-scaled yet fully sustainable Christmas Village with a twist: absolutely no money needed. As entry to the premise and for free access to all the offerings, an adult may contribute some 2kg of groceries (pasta, rice, canned food) whereas children leave a book. Following the principle of circular economy, at the end the collected books are donated to the libraries of the regional nursery schools, while the foodstuff stocks up the warehouse of our “Social Goods Distribution”, supporting people in dire need. At the same time, a uniquely inclusive social space is created, where people with financial or cultural hurdles have easy access to. The participants of the Volunteering Team will be involved in every aspect of preparation and execution of the event (spreading hay, decoration, caring for the small and big visitors) as well as showcasing their own traditions in a creative and inclusive way.

Alloggio, vitto e trasporto

For the duration of their visit, volunteers' accommodation, food and transport will be fully taken care of by the organization. Additionally, every volunteer recieves a fixed amount of pocket-money. Depending on the occupancy, participants may either be accommodated in one of the organization's own fully-equipped apartments (each apartement with three rooms, each room with four beds) or in our heated dormitory with space for approximately 20 people. All accommodation is directly on the premises. Meals will be provided and prepared in and by Kapnikos Stathmos to be enjoyed together as a group.
