Description

Partner : St Ybars, located at the gateway to Ariège, once again wishes to organize an international volunteer project! This town which benefits from a magnificent point of view on the surroundings was built around a Bastide. This village overlooks the valley and gives these people an exceptional living environment. A large part of the village is also classified in the heritage of France and is therefore subject to special protection. In order to continue to preserve these places, the municipality decided to welcome once again an international workcamp to work on his school.

Work And Activities

WORK: This town of 600 inhabitants is lucky to have a communal school of 5 classes. She wants to maintain and enhance it! This year St Ybars wanted to give a boost to his school. The barriers that surround the courtyard where students can spend their recreation are severely damaged by the weather. Your mission will be to give color to these bars to cheer up their school a little! Housing and food: You will be staying in a campsite next to the hunters’ house. This one will be made available for you so that you can realize your meals and access to the toilets. The meals will be prepared by volunteers: do not hesitate to bring back specialties or recipes to discover to other members of the group! For the shower you will have access to the one located in the village hall which is in front of the school. You will be required to participate in daily tasks (kitchen, dishes, cleaning etc.). The site is located less than 5 minutes from your camp and the heart of the village. The association can not take care of you if you arrive before the start date of construction, nor beyond the date of end of stay.
