Ακούς Ασία και σου φαίνεται πολύ μακρινή;

 

Αν το έχεις βάλει στόχο ζωής, τότε αυτό το καλοκαίρι μπορείς να βρεθείς σε μία χώρα της Ασίας και να γνωρίσεις έναν εντελώς διαφορετικό πολιτισμό! Ιαπωνία, Μογγολία, Ταιβάν, Χονγκ-Κονγκ, Νότια Κορέα, Νεπάλ και βεβαίως η Ινδία είναι μόνο μερικοί από τους προορισμούς που μπορείς να πας.

 

Φέτος, η ΕΛΙΞ σου παρέχει τη δυνατότητα να συμμετάσχεις σε ένα από τα 600 προγράμματα εθελοντικής εργασίας στην Ασία, τα οποία περιλαμβάνουν προγράμματα, workcamps διάρκειας 2-3 εβδομάδων, μακροπρόθεσμα (LTV 6-12 μηνών) και μεσοπρόθεσμα (MTV 1-6 μηνών), καθώς και μόνιμα προγράμματα (Permeant) τα οποία λειτουργούν όλο το χρόνο και στα οποία μπορεί κάποιος να σύμφωνα με τις οδηγίες του κάθε προγράμματος.

 

Δούλεψε με παιδιά στην Ιαπωνία, υποστήριξε την ανοικοδόμηση του Νεπάλ μετά τον καταστροφικό σεισμό ή γνώρισε πως είναι να ζεις ως νομάς στην Μογγολία.
Αυτό το καλοκαίρι, πήγαινε Ασία!
