In the archive below you can see more photos from each expedition and read about the work we did. The weekend projects were also about meeting new people, opportunities to exchange their experiences and enjoy themselves while working in a team on a meaningful task for Czech non-profit organizations.
Besides the Weekend volunteering projects we organized many other events that took few hours, one day or some weeks – workcamps… (to see more click here, only in Czech).
Also in the beginning of the year we would not even think of accomplishing two other amazing things!
Tamjdem has a radioshow on the Streetculture radio and the Czech television made a documentary about Tamjdem (to see more click here, only in Czech).
We would like to thank all our volunteers and partner non-profit organizations for their great energy and support!
