SOW THE SMALL PEBBLES AS A FAMILY | SJ/FAM79 | 2018-08-01 - 2018-08-08 | RENO | Age: 5 - 90


Pebbles, colours, families, and messengers of peace, you are invited to spend time with you children by participating in workshops together and meeting other families of diverse cultures. Originating from a direct partnership with the town of Laguépie since 2009, our project will take place in multiple buildings located at our site in the Mayounelle, where one part, renovated to this day, is an office for the permanent employees. One extension of the building has been under construction for the past three years, and will eventually be the community kitchen. This project is the work of long-term international volunteers, international teens participating in workcamps, and local volunteers. The idea behind this project is to foster a relationship between these different groups with a tangible achievement. Therefore, you will play a key role in this cultural intermingling and will bring your stone to the concrete construction of a world where tolerance and peace will be essential.

Work: You will be working in workshops around the garden, the construction of a low wall, as well as paving work or cooking. By adapting the organisations work hours and the tasks to be completed, the workshops will be accessible to all over the age of 5. Supervised by a technical and educational adviser, the group will be composed of 4 to 5 families.

Accomodation and food: In a house accommodated with dorms that also serves as a hosting centre for international volunteers during the winter. You will be at 10-minute walking distance from the work site and 3 minutes from the centre of the village. For lunch, you will join the volunteers (teens, international volunteers, and employees) at the Mayounelle site. As for dinner, you will organize and prepare the menus in groups.
