„It has been nine months since I came to Lithuania. I have spent almost a year there volunteering in an EVS project in Kretinga, at the Dienos Veiklos Centras.
One of the first things I’ve done here was learning Lithuanian and Lithuanian culture. It’s seemed important to me to learn as much as possible about the local community. And Lithuanians are so nice and opened people, they would tell you everything about their country with great pleasure.
Kretinga is a small town. And I learned to live in it and to be in touch with nature. I was enjoying long walks around the lake and in the forest. Nature had a calming effect on me and helped me better understand myself and my surroundings. Also, there’s a great opportunity to travel a lot around Lithuania and abroad.
I extremely enjoyed volunteering at the Day Activity Center. I designed illustrations for the center’s brochure, did a lot of drawing for different events, created several needlework classes, organized English and Russian teaching events, learned lots of features of work with disabled people. Currently, I’m working on my final project that would represent the result of my work here. This valuable experience has given me a new perspective on disabled people and communication with them. This project has opened my eyes.
All in all, all of this would not be possible without all the amazing people I was lucky to get acquainted with here. These people have become my second family, people I can trust and confide in, people I laugh and cry with. I am very happy to be a volunteer at Dienos Veiklos Centras. And if I was to choose again, I would choose Lithuania again.“
