Completed projects

logo_0071The project “Volunteer 007” was aimed at informing the local community about what being a volunteer means.
It helped to set up a mediation system between organizations who are looking for volunteers and people who want to be involved in voluntary work.
The Focus Center created a database in which an interest in volunteering can register and find many different organizations and institutions which host volunteers.
The future volunteers have been provided with trainings courses to improve their abilities and inner resources, and have received guidance on how to make their own interests, needs and possibilities fit into volunteering.
