Hello, my name is Giorgi. I'm 21 years old and
I'm from Georgia,Tbilisi. I spent 4 month in Craiova, Romania from November 2016 till March 2017.
So Evs for me and I think for all of you are
great chance and also the best thing, because EVS gives you a lot
of skills, friends, opportunities to travel everywhere where you want, to make your dreams coming true, to see your favorite (and
a lot of different from your homeland) country, religion and culture. All that after that will help you a lot in your life. I worked at penitentiary. My project name was “Restart” and we were
six EVS volunteers from different countries. Our public events were:
exhibition, intercultural event, flash mob, and EU travelling opportunities,
let's do it Romania, blood donation.Also all of us had a possibility to join another events. And it was nice
opportunity, new ideas, to learn something new, and of course to make a
friendship. In December I was on arrival training, where I got more information
about the EVS, Erasmus +, Cigna and general volunteering. Also we had meeting
with Romanian National Agency of Erasmus + program where we had an opportunity
to get to know more information about the international and local volunteering,
also we discussed volunteer’s problems, and we've found the solving ways. But
it was not all of it. In my case I had eight free days, which, I used and I had
a trip around Romania. I went for holidays and met new friends from
on-arrival training. During the EVS time we were keeping in touch with each
other and after that we gathered together in different cities.Well, about my communication during
the EVS - it was only in English. I was speaking in English with everyone.
Also, we did some desk during my EVS where was writing activities and a lot of
things. EVS gave to me everything what you need for having THE BEST memories in your life and
new friendships, to develop good intercultural communication skills, to gain
learning experience how to be good team worker, to write some documents:
(publications, reports etc.), to speak and improve English and of course to
have fun, travel around the country and also EU countries.
Hello, my name is also Giorgi and I spent five month in
Craiova, Romania from November 2016 till April of 2017.
