I am Salome, a 23 years old girl from Tbilisi, Georgia. I am a classical pianist and make my MA degree in Krakow. Music means everything to me and all my life moves around it. In October 2020, I arrived in Poland for continuing my studies by Erasmus + exchange program and After finishing it I really wanted to devote my time to something different activities besides my profession. I heard about the ESC program from my friend, who is also a volunteer in Krakow and I applied for it.
This Monday we had a workshop, called “Pisanki” (painting eggs with wax). We made two different types of eggs – blown and hardboiled. There are also other artificial Easter eggs. These can be made from decorated wood or even such eyebrow-raising materials as Styrofoam and Felt.
Under the European Solidarity Corps project, our volunteers have created a creativity club and every week they implement different kind of activities. last week they tried to make homemade soap and the result was very impressive
Celie, a volunteer from France is the leader of creativity club and she tells more about the homemade soap.

It is a really hard time for everyone, especially for young people. when everything is closed and you must stay at home. We came to Poland at the beginning of Autumn and so far we have not been able to enjoy the city and discover all its excellent sides.
Our host organization tries everything to create comforts for us and the last week they offered us to spend Friday evening at the Trampoline, which is a huge place for burning calories and having fun. After several months of being at home and eating Zapieanka which is a traditional polish food, this idea seemed cool. This place was amazing to spend an hour with the people who are parts of our Polish family. Read more →
For a foreign person, everything is new and strange in the new country. Despite that Poland is not very new and different from my country, I can boldly say that sometimes I am also surprised by Polish culture and differences.
Last week, the coordinator wrote to us about an opportunity for helping local people to clean the house of an elder guy, who has some health problems and can’t walk. Read more →

Have you ever thought about volunteering? Have you ever seen yourself as a volunteer in a foreign country with different people and culture? Maybe yes, or not. But being a volunteer is an opportunity to help others, to use your knowledge and experiences for involving in activities which give you pleasure.

I am 18 years old and finished school this summer. I love trying new things, finding challenges and meeting new people. I am a total fan of nature, anytime I am outside I feel the urge to be productive and to explore. With my family I have travelled to several countries like Namibia, Morocco, Greenland and Slovenia, so the interest in meeting new cultures and seeing different lifestyles came to me already at a young age.
