This project is an attempt to widen EVS boundaries up till quite little known for Europe region - South America.Two South America countries (Bolivia and Peru) providing youth, educational and social services for the local children and young people have agreed on partnership and create possibilities to experience European voluntary service in their countries as well by sending young people to the Europe. There is a real need to widen possibilities for such collaboration: we are facing the reality that young people looking for the places and cultures they hadn't been to, as well to be meaningful with their voluntary work to the countries suffering economical poverty. European volunteer service is one of the best ways by helping others to gain deeper understanding and brake own boundaries.There are six countries in the project: Bolivia, Peru, Lithuania, Estonia, Denmark and Italy. Project duration - 13 month. By this project seven young volunteers will have possibility to implement individual or group EVS projects, where one place will be provided for deaf volunteer. The entire hosting project target group is disadvantaged children and young people, living in the rural areas.The project creates spaces to share competences, skills, knowledge and ideas for EVS volunteers, project organizations and local people. At the same time project will give space to learn through multicultural dialogue and creative citizenship.
