In the last 2 months happend a lot of things. I left Austria to work and live abroad. At the same moment, when I arrived in Liepaja- my new home for 10 months- I was confident, that it will be a good time.
In this past 2 months I already gained a lot of new experiences, found new friends and had time to explore the beautiful city.
The first month I worked with the other volunteers (also my flatmates 😉 ) Jule and Orsi in Karosta, because the main organisation staff was on a training course.
In October two new volunteers- Levan and Amaly- arrived. And I started to work togehter with them for Liepajas Jaunie Vanagi.
Our first job was to plan the saturday aktivities for teenagers and youth. We already organized a game afternoon, a movie afternoon and everyone presented her/his country.
But our first big challenge, was the children holiday week in the end of October. The topic was ,,Around the World“. We expected up to 30 children and we were worried how to work with this amount. But in the end we worked with 18 children. And so we could cope with this challenge better than expected. In the end of the week we were tired but now we can say that it was a good week and we had a lot of fun with the children.
Now I am looking forward to the next months. We started to plan non-formal lessons for schools and after school aktivities in the office.
