Summer camp

As most of our projects, the l'Accoglienza Estiva started with a main sanitary purpose.

Every summer we host in a large number of Sahrawi children with disabilities. Our main purpose is to offer them adequate medical treatments during the holidays and away from the controversial situation of the Sahrawi refugee camps.

Volunteers

All of this would be impossible without the commitment and dedication of our volunteers. They are youngster from all over the world that every summer decide to take away a little bit of their time to help those less fortunate.

If you are also interested in being part of our projects and working with us, the summer volunteering program is right for you. Trust us, you will have the opportunity to live an educational experience that you will never forget.

How does it work?

The volunteer camp takes place in Grottammare, in the province of Ascoli Piceno. Children and volunteers are hosted in a school building a just a few steps away from the Adriatic Sea.

The Volunteers spend their day-to-day with the children, since they wake up until bedtime. They help them during the meals and participate in activities with them like to the beach, going for a walk or going to the doctor appointments. Most of the children are non autonomous, so they need in all their daily tasks including the essential ones such as eating, getting dressed, moving or even going to the toilet.

The volunteer camp is composed by young boys and girls from all over the world. The most popular languages are English and Spanish.
