Volunteering for a smile



Hello, I’m Eleni and I’m from Greece.  I’m 20 years old and I decided to take part in a volunteering project in Romania while I’m also studying in Greece.

I love travelling, meeting new people and cultures, reading books and going skiing in the winters. I also like spending time with kids and learning new languages.

I’m Simon, 21 years old, from France and in Reșița since the 21st of January 2019. Last year, I did a Europe tour, in auto-stop during almost 5 months. When I met volunteers of Nevo Parudimos the 1st time, I also was volunteer in a youth hotel in Sofia, in Bulgaria and they came for the week-end. They proposed me to pass in Reșița, I stayed 5 days and I fell in love of Romania. And now I’m here for 1 year, and maybe more…? I play drums and harmonica, and a bit of ukulele and accordion.  I like to travel, to draw, to play games, to hike and to drink beer with friend Blablabla. Come on, let’s go!
