Italien LUNAR 30 AGAPE 6 (PRALI) 26.12.2017-07.01.2018 SOCI/MANU 10vols (no more female)
PROJECT: Agape international ecumenical centre is a place of encounter where you can live an intense experience of community in beautiful natural surroundings. Agape was and still is an important point of reference in Italian Protestantism, for 60 years a place of education and development, theological exploration, political engagement, of acceptance and validation of differences. Every year many people, with different religious, cultural, political background, and of different age, come to Agape to discuss and to be challenged, to get to know themselves and each other and to exchange experiences around a particular theme. Agape was built after the Second World War as a sign of hope and of reconciliation between people, thanks to the voluntary work of many young men and women; a resident group still lives at Agape throughout the year. The dimensions of community and voluntary service remain central. Please visit: www.agapecentroecumenico.org to see which are the activity programmes for this period.
WORK: The workcamp will support the activities of AGAPE when a number of guests have meetings on issues of political, social, cultural and religious interest. Volunteers will help in the following areas: kitchen, meal service (tables and dishes), cleaning, maintenance, bar tending, babysitting. Games, discussions and outings can be organized during free time. Programmed activities (especially in the evening) are most of the time open to volunteers, as long as they do not clash with work commitments. The place is beautiful but really isolated, though you will stay together with many international participants to the meetings of AGAPE.
ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD: Usually the workcampers will be host in 3-4 bed bedrooms. Toilets are in common on the floor. The meal are typical Italian Mediterranean and there is a vegetarian alternative for those who require it, as well as for any specific allergies. It is possible to use a washing machine.
LOCATION: Agape is located in Prali, a small village in the mountains, which lies in the Germanasca Valley, in the Province of Turin.
ARRIVAL: Prali is a small village so unfortunately, public transports are limited. Only two coaches go all the way to Prali every day, leaving Turin at 10.41 am and arriving in Prali at 13.24 am, or at 11.41 and arriving at 14.03. We require that all volunteers contact the office before arriving especially since travel to Agape can be complicated
