Hi! I’m a 25 year old Irish cailín currently undertaking a 12 month EVS – European Voluntary Service in Belarus. I am here with the Belarusian charity World Without Boarders. I’m living in Minsk but travel to institutions across the country.
This isn’t my first time in Belarus. I have travelled every year since 2010 with an Irish charity Burren Chernobyl Project and volunteered in two orphanages for children with disabilities, Cherven and Goradische. It’s through these experiences that I developed a hunger to do more and for a longer period of time.
I’ve no doubt this year will through various challenges at me but I’m willing to give it a shot.
I hope to give some insight into various aspects of life in Belarus and in to the workings of these institutions. Please, join me on this exciting adventure!!
