Hello people, I am Tanja and I am doing EVS in Lisbon, Portugal. From the begging I was extremely excited about the possible opportunity to participate in EVS. My first impressions were amazing, hospitality of the organization, starting life in new city, sharing apartment with people from different places. I have great experience working with children and people with special needs, I have the responsibility to propose activities and projects to help them integrate in the society. But, EVS it’s not only about helping and volunteering. It’s a mixture of culture, traditions, travels, meeting new people, exploring, learning, searching, enjoying. This experience gave me chance to grow up like a person and to learn different things. I highly recommend to everybody to take this chance in a lifetime and shake the world.
