What We Need

We need volunteers to carry out administration and fundraising and also to work on our online course and our website. If the person is willing to learn the language and the culture, we also need volunteers to teach people to be "barefoot therapists" and to do psychological work. At present, we cannot give any monetary support. However, once funds are found, that might be possible. We need people to stay for at least a year.

Additional Info about Us

Up to 5 people

We work with war victims of all ethnicities and with people on the move, that is, asylum seekers. The volunteer would support us in all our activities, including household duties, administration, fundraising, etc. which we all take on.

All volunteers MUST be able to obtain a Croatian visa without us guaranteeing their costs or must deposit the possible additional costs, as specified by the Croatian government, with us, which we will return when they leave. We will find accommodation for the volunteer. Accommodation and meals up to HRK 200 (about € 25) per day are included in the daily fee. All further transportation is the responsibility of the volunteer, except when it is in the service of the organization. The volunteer is responsible for obtaining the required visas. All volunteers must be in good health and have health insurance, also with repatriation costs if required. We do not allow intoxication of any sort, that is, alcohol or drugs. There is no smoking permitted on the premises. We can give limited education. We warn volunteers that we are an intensive organization and that this is no place for a holiday. We are working with the lives of people and take that seriously. We expect the person to learn Croatian/Serbian/Bosnian and the cultures here, as well as the cultures of the people on the move.

No.

We are a serious organization and work very hard with the victims of war and with asylum seekers and refugees. We give education to those wishing to be "barefoot therapists"/peer supporters. The education that we give is onsite and online. We also do a small amount of onsite and online counseling. We are in the process of writing self-paced online courses. We are very willing to work with other organizations.
