Weekends 2015

TOTAL OF 129 VOLUNTEERS JOINED US ON 14 WEEKEND EXPEDITIONS TO THE DEVELOPMENT CZECH NGOS AND HAVE CONTRIBUTED 1 298 HOURS OF WORK.

The implementation involved 15 volunteer-organizers, for whom we held spring training and autumn evaluation meeting. We ended the year with a photography competition “Working for free is not in vain,” and we celebrated it during the evening of inspiring meeting called “Pass it on”. During 2015, a few volunteers organized a charity book bazaars throughout Prague and one spring Saturday we met for a one-day event in Toulcův yard in Prague.

We thank to all our volunteers and partner non-profit organizations for their time, active participation and support!
