Volunteers 2014

Andrea Villacis

Warm greetings to everyone! I am Andrea Villacis, I'm from a very beautiful part of earth, too – my Ecuador. The name of my small but cozy city is Riobamba. 

I am a happy person with a lot of energy, I am adventurous and worked on a cultural project for youths together with some friends in Ecuador. I like arts as part of sensitisation to explore your personal growth. I am motivated when I am on the road and can gain new experiences, that enrich my life.

Right now, I am happy to make these experiences as volunteer in Germany, in my new and interesting city of Freiburg. I have made my first steps with my funny family, my work in the kindergarten, with new friends and unforgettable moments.

I am sure, this voluntaryship will leave traces in my life. And I am ready to do my best for a mutual enrichment.

Hallo! My Name is Sudarshan Bhattarai. I’m 21 and I live in Kathmandu which is the capital city of Nepal. Actually I come from another city - Butwal, where I lived for twenty years.

I am studying Bachelor in Social Work (BSW) at the university in Kathmandu. I’m interested in music, sport, fantasy literature and meeting new people. I am basically a simple , adjusting and fun loving person, whom others consider as sincere and friendly too. I would describe myself as a hardworking and sincere boy.
