Volunteer from Romania Aida, after this project‘s evaluation, wrote:
“I still can speak Lithuanian language and I like very much. I had a very nice teacher with an amazing way of teaching. Now, I am more opened to the people, more open-minded and happy because I did what I wanted. EVS is regarded as a good thing and it already helped me in finding a job.
It gives you a great opportunity to meet other people and different cultures and this is such a nice thing. It’s great to be in the middle of a community for few moths, not days as a traveler or a tourist…”
