Labas, I am Gvantsa from Sakartvelo (Georgia). Since 10th of October I live in Marijampole, in a little and cozy town.
But let’s start from the beginning J . Several months ago I realized that I needed a new challenge in my life and I thought this might be going abroad and live there alone for a while, I wanted to find out how is life far away from your homeland, without family and close friends. Wanted to discover new lands, new people, new cultures and of course share my culture, my knowledge and experience to others.
New volunteer - Simon from France. The project aims to reduce social exclusion with the help of international volunteers. Simon's volunteering place will be Kalvarija's gymnasium. The project is financed under the "Erasmus+" programme.
Volunteering brings us closer to the community and teaches us to create a more beautiful world with our work. We are happy to announce that our strategic European volunteers service project is starting with Dorothea from Germany. The project aims to reduce social exclusion with the help of international volunteers. Dorothea's volunteering place will be Kalvarija's gymnasium. The project is financed under the "Erasmus+" programme.
After graduating from school I had to face the big question: What should I do with my future? While considering a voluntary service, there was only one thing that was sure for me: it had to be Lithuania. I arrived in Marijampole on the 8th of September and I already could tell that I would like my stay here because of the kind greeting I experienced. I don‘t live in Marijampole for a long time yet but I can say that I really like this town. There are beautiful parks, the scenery is nice, I love the paintings on the walls, the people are warm-hearted and welcoming and the town is really active; there is no week without an event. There are relaxing places like the spring with three cats on it or the main square. I‘m really glad I came to Marijampole and that I have the chance to experience Lithuanian culture, language and more new things.
