International KERIC Christmas 2009

International Christmas is a very special day when the KERIC volunteers make the people from Cadca really "feel" Christmas . During this day, they present the way how Christmas is celebrated in the home countries of our EVS volunteers and what it means to them personally. This year, it was organised on 18th December 2009 by Alice and Laura (France), Tanja (Austria), Hanna (Germany), Melisa (Uruguay), Daniel (Brazil) and Maie (Italy). Over 200 children and adults came to KERIC to experience this special Christmas atmosphere and really enjoyed it. You can see a short video of this day on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHI0N6zShio 

English language and computer training for youth workers 1

KERIC hosted 10 youth workers from all over Slovakia during the period of 20 to 24 October 2009. They came here to learn about EVS, improve their English conversation and computer skills needed for hosting EVS volunteers in their organisations in the future. 


KERIC activity

On 22 May 2009 KERIC launched a new activity whose aim was to provide space for entertainment in the main square and connect skilled and gifted young people from the local community with our volunteers and create a new interesting programme. The youth from Čadca was represented by two hip-hop groups Kindergang and Dance Factory, metal group The scar, a boys drum group, international music group The Gu-da (consisting of our volunteers Giuseppe, Daniel and boys from Čadca), etc. Guests were also Capoeira club from Žilina, ex-volunteers Lenka and Vladka, etc.  

A great thing about the event was the wide range of genres, styles, approaches and mixture of nationalities. The speakers also interviewed the volunteers currently hosted by KERIC or those who have been sent abroad.

This has been a completely new experience for the whole KERIC team. We hope to organise this event again next year - with new ideas and improvements. Looking forward to KERIC Activity 2010!  

International children's day

It's already a tradition, that we dedicate the afternoon of 1st June to children and prepare some workshops and fun activities for them to celebrate the International children's day. This year, our team - consisting mainly of men - taught capoeira to children , made funny photos with a dinosaur and an astronaut, made animals from baloons for/with the children, threw baloons into the fountain and then "fished" them out, painted faces or made temporary "tatoos". All this happened in between two summer storms and in a great atmosphere. The plan for next year is: the same place, the same time, but different volunteer team and different activities.
