InDaHouse Hungary works in one of the poorest and most disadvantaged regions in Hungary, Borsod-AbaE j-ZemplEn County. Our volunteers hold individual and group sessions for underprivileged children to help them with their studies and develop their abilities. Our goal is that the kids who take part in our programme become independent, liable adults who are able to control their own life. We have an Early Childhood Development Program for kids under 6, and we study individually with the older ones (from 6 to 18) to practice comprehension, mathematics and English. We also try to broaden their horizons with different activities e.g. hiking, dance lessons, video making courses, etc. In the near future we would like to open a charity shop and a cafE in the village. We have two old buildings for these purposes that need renovation. Working with volunteers from bigger cities and from abroad also help the local community to connect with different social groups and to be more open. https://indahousehungary.hu/
The children we work with study English in school but they dont use it in real life. They hardly ever meet people from abroad, they dont watch films or read books in English.From September we would like to have 2 long term volunteers who will regularly teach them English and this camp will serve as a warm up for this project where they can experience how to communicate in English, learn and practice some basics of the language. The programme of the camp will also contain a lot of group and team building activities and games. The camp itself will take for 5 days, the kids will be there from 9 am to 5 pm every day. We expect about 50 children, with age between 7 and 16. They will be in groups of 10, each group lead by 2 volunteers. The volunteers will have to take part of the preparations before the camp and the execution of the programmes. Our national InDaHouse volunteers are responsible for planning the programmes in advance and supplying all the necessary materials and equipment, but if you have some ideas or good practice feel free to share them with us
