Savanorystė, keičia požiūrį!!!

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.“

Let me live, love, and say it all in good sentences

smariSummer arrived in Lithuania, sun is shining like in my country and People enjoy it. We all were waiting for this… I started to write this post and feel a smell of rain; I think it’s going to rain today. My mood is not changing by weather but I can say that right now I feel very nostalgic and strange.
Yesterday I was chatting with my nice and she write with a happy smile “31 days left” … In this moment I open a calendar and looked at the date of my departure. Yes, that’s true. Only one month left, in my face appeared a sad or batter will be a nostalgic smile, I was looking to trees today which were making sound by wind and sun was shining between the leaves. I take a deep breath and made a promise one more time, to myself that I must come back here, one day. In novel “Little prince” the fox is saying to him “You become responsible forever for what you’ve tamed.” And we must remember this…
