Please read below some of the experiences that volunteers gained by taking part in one of our workcamps in Greece:
This summer was really mine..It was a special summer, different from the others.
This summer I had the chance to participate in the ELIX’s program “This summer is ours”. Today is 30 of September and it’s true that I still remember everything..I have to say that this was one of my best life’s experiences.
I had never been in a voluntary workcamp like that and, after this amazing first experience I don’t know how to explain in a few phrases every second, every laugh, everything I learned there…
In my opinion, everyone should have his own "expectations list" before one important trip. My list included improve my English, meet new people, have a new professional experience-it was my first time working with children! – and of course visit the historic city of Athens.

After some time people usually remember smallest world, soft touch, pleasant sound. It can be good morning that somebody wished, thanks, hello, and kept silent goodbye somebody may haven’t said. It is an inquiring look, smell of morning coffee singing in the kitchen, small flesh of first Thessaloniki sun.

“If there is one thing, I wish from this moment we will try to spend every single minute with each other. Talk, play, do things, or whatsoever. Just be together. Time flies like an arrow, and two weeks will pass in the blink of an eye. It is too short to completely know each other, but still, it is long enough for us to create truly memorable moments, to remember our time. I am sure we will miss this so much, and I don’t want us to look back and regret the things we didn't do.”
I would like to share with you my recent lovely experience from ELEPAP at the voluntary program of "Solidarity lessons" by ELIX. It was an amazing voluntary program which helped me improve my perception about life due to the daily fight of the children and their endless strength and courage.
