Volunteers and Students in Action

The first week of our volunteers in Pacheco Community Centre was full of activities and challenges.

Their first day working with the group of young people was dedicated to sorting the recently received pieces of furniture for the classroom as well as the computers. At the end of the day the room was ready for the theory classes. 

On the second day, the volunteers took part in the activities of the workshop along with the gardening teacher and while everyone was sitting in a circle they told the students about their expectations of being a volunteer, getting to know other cultures and exchanging ideas. They introduced themselves and talked about their home countries, Germany and Switzerland. 

The following days of the week involved working in the vegetable patch, separating little plants and transplanting them. The volunteers also took part in gardening tasks in order to make flower beds more beautiful with ornamental plants.

For the last class of the week, on Saturday morning, they took up the challenge of giving a lesson to the young people which focused on helping them think about a responsible agriculture. Lastly, volunteers and students ate homemade bread and enjoyed a refreshing dip in the pool.
