Join this Tamjdem weekend and get to understand the life in a community of people who are a bit disadvantaged but their joy and positive attitude simply inspires you and makes you genuinely happy.  You will also have a chance to ask the assistants about their work and the founders of the place about their visions.
And last but not least we will learn about the Villa’s history (a masterpiece of secession architecture) and of course about the rich history of the organization as such!

We have been to Villa Vallila many times before and we enjoyed all the weekends very much. After the manual work, that we did together with the clients and assistants of the organization, we went for a walk in the surroundings or relaxed around the huge community table talking or playing games…The super friendly atmosphere in the Villa is just magical!

The main work task planned for this weekend is planting trees in the nearby forest. Last year, the trees had to be cut down because they were infested with parasites. For this reason, the help of every volunteer is crucial for the restoration of the forest.
