Feedbacks 

«The work was very interesting, we also got a lot of background information, we had professional guides and everything was organised very well. I have learnt an enormous amount of little and big cultural differences between my culture and others. For me it was very rewarding. I have learnt a lot about construction of stone walls and a lot of French.»
Ehud Bourne, 40, Workcamp in France

«I learnt a lot about the Japanese culture as well as many other cultures (because of other Volunteers). I improved my English skills and in general, I had many great experiences.»
Claudio Graf, 19, Workcamp in Japan
