What is the aim of EVS in A.C.T.O.R.?
A.C.T.O.R. is an EVS sending- hosting- coordinating organization. A.C.T.O.R. is working for the locals and Europeans projects only with young volunteers. Our first EVS volunteer came in
in 2003. The presence of the European volunteers is for us like a fresh air. The beneficiary- the children of our clinic animation and pedagogic projects are always happy to be in contact with people from other cultures. Also the Romanian youth interested to become volunteers came close to our programs because they like to be in touch with youngster from abroad. The EVS volunteers hosted in A.C.T.O.R. are in contact with a lot of institutions: kindergarten, schools, high schools, hospitals, other NGOs, some local authorities…Etc. All these contacts give to the volunteer the opportunity to understand our culture in a very deeply way.
