For 7 years, the project together with CDC have continued to grow thanks to the contribution from the volunteers reaching an audience in the ages of 2 to 17 and several youth organizations. Now, the CDC want to engage EVS volunteers to improve further. In order to do this, Concordia started an youth exchange together with CDC on the theme of discrimination in July 2013. The exchange allowed locals to discover new European projects and create an dynamic local area. In this context, the CDC is very enthusiastic to welcome back new volunteers for the year 2015/2016.
Partners to send for this project are the association "Compass Európai Ifjúsági Közösségért Egyesület" from Hungary and the association Lunaria from Italy.
