International work camp with Emmaus Iași
What is the project?The foundation Un Coup de Main d’Emmaus Iasi seeks to expand its geographical area of action, as well as the action itself. Through this project, we want to implement an organic vegetable farming, to welcome people and raise awareness among general public about environment, and to extend the second-hand shop. The 2018 work camp represents the beginning of this major project, which includes the building of an educational farm. The first step is to build the second-hand shop on the field of the Belvedere, in the rural town of Podu Iloaiei near Iasi. We will also implement cultivations and plant trees.
What will be your tasks?First of all, you will help the team to erect the metal structure of the shop. Then you will give a hand in the layout work (insulation, etc.) Your task all along the camp also will be to organize the agricultural plot near the shop: to plant, to look after the crop growing. We don’t expect you to have any specific skills in this camp (but if you have some… it’s also great !)
A word about Un Coup de Main d’Emmaus IaşiUn Coup de Main d’Emmaus Iasi is a non-profit organization which aims to support homeless people and people in a precarious situation.
For a little organization…• You can come to Iasi by plane, train, car or stop… Then the place of the work camp is reachable by car (we will have one available) or bus (one each thirty minutes). • Although it is near of a major road, the place is very isolated: none solid construction, none wifi… (but the Romanian network cards are affordable and satisfying !) • If the weather is good, the volunteers will camp in the place. If not, you will sleep in one of our communities. If you have tents, don’t hesitate to bring it with you. However we will be able to provide the volunteers with some tents. • The way to Iasi will be charged to you. We will give you the meals. • To make the organization easier, we ask the volunteers to work in the camp at least one week. • We can welcome until 9 persons per week. Thus we ask you to register so we are able to schedule.
