Invitation To The 3rd International Family Service Project: „Establishing A Culture Of Peace Through The Culture Of Heart
13th -22nd August 2004
Dear Families and volunteers,
International Relief Friendship Foundation is inviting you to take part in 3rd International Family Service Project held in Slovenia, where families and volunteers from all over the world are setting up a role model of cooperation among families from different nations and religions, stressing an active role of a family in the society.
Family Project‚s vision is to inspire families to educate children in the spirit of solidarity and service, teach them about loyalty, respect for others, honesty, self-sacrifice and taking responsibility.
Together with volunteers families will help (small restoration works that everyone can do) to the local institutions (kindergarten, old people home, schools) of two small communities Verzej and Ljutomer (http://www.imgrad-ljutomer.si/pg/lju/ljutomer-e.htm ).
During the project, beside the service, there will be two days of orientation program (making acquaintances, discussing family values), evening programs and round tables, outings to a beautiful landscape along the river Mura, participation in family games, local cultural events and folklore. A special program will be made for children. They will have a chance to take an active part in the project, help their parents and enjoy in other activities prepared for them (hunting treasure, handcraft work, swimming and playing sports).
Participants will be accommodated at the Salesian institution with long tradition of hosting and organizing camps for children, seminars for families and parents.
You are all warmly invited to participate with your families and experience unforgettable adventures living, working and sharing together with other families and volunteers.
Report and photos from last year family project are available on:
We are looking forward to your participation. More information about the project and program you can get from Lara Zmaher. Application forms are available on http://www.irff-europe.org/agenda.html .
