To work with children is priceless experience

Organizers conceptually divided this unforgettable event into three different workshops: creative recycling, solar toys and puppet theatre. Free expression of their ideas was guaranteed for each participant, so besides common tasks that were needed to be completed within the workshop, each volunteer had the opportunity to develop concrete artistic work as a result of his creativity. The most exciting part of the training – course was direct meeting with the youngest residents from Banja Luka, with whom every day in the afternoon hours were organized workshops besides quay of the river Vrbas.Working with children was a challenge that had to overcome all participants on the training – course. For some of them, this was their first experience in their life that will never forget. The training – course was great opportunity to establish friendships between children and their parents from one side and professionals working for organization of this event and volunteers who participated in this international event, from the other side. The final results of the three workshops were presented on 25th August at the Youth House located in the center of Banja Luka, where was performed puppet show and were exhibited artistic works from several-days workshops. The presence of more than 200 people on the final event was special experience for every participant.From the training – course in Banja Luka stays eternal memories. Remembrance from socializing with participants from different countries, gained significant experience in making things that will be useful for every individual in his future life. Satisfaction with the finished work is further impulse for participation on other similar events organized through the “Youth in Action” programme of European Union.
