Afghan volunteers at Harmanli refugee camp are very active. First they started their own school - for children, teenagers and adults. After the fire which burned down their classroom, they renovated a room in another building and started again. At the moment they dream of making a better use of their classroom by adding an atelier for women and teenage girls.
They would like to sew, embroider, knit and crochet - not only to pass their free time but also to learn from one another and to prepare for a fuller life in Europe. The volunteers dream of encouraging women to learn more about opportunities to create their own home-based jobs, which will allow them to earn money while taking care of their children.

Once a mission you participate in ends, you can tell us how it went in a couple of sentences ("it was great" won't do).
It's simple: after the end we send you instructions - follow them. This way you earn points and rise in rank , others get inspired and we're all happy.
