Last year EVS volunteers at GYE hosted a series of workshops on Human Rights. Many Georgian youth enjoyed these workshops, so this year we want to offer a club that is devoted to these topics: equality, tolerance, intercultural relationship-building, religion, minorities, gender, and many other important topics. This club hopes to make people respect diversity.
Edita and Ioseba will lead this club and Christine will support them.

Other Ways to get Involved
If you’re more interested in volunteering than being a member of a club you can help people in need in Rustavi and work with EVS volunteers at Sapovnela or the Disability center.
This year three EVS volunteers will provide games, do team building activities develop artistic view and handicrafts based on upcycling. Organize theater events where youth will be the actors. This activity is not open for more participants BUT we would like a few Georgian Volunteers to help the EVS volunteers interact with the kids.
Beata, Eva, and Anna are the leaders of this club and YOU can be their support!
This club is scheduled for Thursday from 16:00-19:00.
Continuing the successful activities of last year, this year’s EVS volunteers will support the students and staff of the New Rustavi’s Disability Center. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Ioseba, Jana, and Laura, who will lead activities concerning the Disability Center.
