Nonformal and environmental education in Otava region
Hey, I am Gosia :-)
I am from small town in Poland called Łańcut. I’m 23 years old. I participated in an English curse and my teacher told me about volunteering project in Czech Republic. Didn’t hear of something like that before and I was very interested in how it works. I read the description of this project. It told me there will be work with animals and gardening so I was sold. Still had some doubts but decided that I don’t have anything to lose so why not try something new?
I am happy that I decided to come here. In a very short time experienced so many new things. Meeting people, trying and learning new things. For example archery I don’t think I would try it in Poland and I would miss so much fun. Preparing some staff for children let me remind myself what it’s like to be a kid. It is good sometimes to look at the world from child’s perspective. Also it allowed me to get dirty with paints so it was great. For now I mostly deal with animals and cleaning work outside. I can tell that for me it’s not work but enjoyment because I love animals. It also allows me to learn what I should do to take good care of each animal. As for the people here what can I say? They are great. If I have any problem it don’t matter to who I go to, they will do everything in their power to help. They are friendly and understanding which is wonderful for someone who is not a people person like me. Also the town is amazing. So peaceful and serene.
Summarizing nice people, beautiful place, doing what I like. Question comes to mind what more do you need in life? :-)
I’m looking forward to spending the next few months here, can’t wait for new challenges and what will happen next.
