National and International Voluntary Service


We were there!

JourneyEU 3 

Fundaţia Creştină Diakonia as partner participated in the project entitled “Preparing for the Journey, Going to the deep!”, together with other 6 organisations, from Spain, Slovakia, Italy, Romania and Poland,  funded by the Erasmus+ programme,  which took place in Skoczow, Poland, between 7-12 November 2014.

 OBG 2013 3

The EVS coordinator of the voluntary programme represented Diakonia at this seminar, and contributed with her experience in EVS projects.


The aim of the seminar was future cooperation, building a network of organisations within Erasmus+ with the same vision. The programme offered numerous lectures and workshops about how to identify our vision, how to plan activities; about writing projects in Erasmus+; about EVS projects in particular; ideas for being present in mass media, how to speak in front of cameras when you promote a project, etc.

Our hearts were delighted by the team-work programmes, games, a trip, and international evening where we had the opportunity to know better each other’s culture and food, and even some of their traditions. Thank you very much, Kościół Chrześcijan Baptystów w Zielonej Górze!

 Who is a volunteer?

Volunteer is anyone, who helps others from inner intention, without any force, he/she is working for a noble purpose, willing to do worthy service without expecting a payment for it.

Our main goal is: to provide those conditions that are based on spreading voluntary activity, making obvious the aims of voluntary programme of the Diakonia and it fund raising.

Voluntary work is more than a simple activity on a social field.


Further aims are:

  • to improve of the standards of the area where the volunteer does the activity;  to make the community feel the helping hand in the presence of the volunteer; to enlarge the group of people who undertake the responsibility for the needy
  • to provide the volunteer with possibility of acknowledging and realising the fact that s/he is an important person, is part of a community; people rely on him/her


No salary is given for voluntary work. The wage is, instead, the appreciation of the community and the society.
