As part of our team, not only will you be helping the people of Ukraine and learning new skills, but you will also have the opportunity to experience life in Slovakia. We ensure every volunteer gets time to experience the local community and sights.

In the village of Nemcinany, you will have the opportunity to experience Slovakian rural life by mingling, interacting, and working with the locals, as well as volunteers from all over the world. When we are not working on the project, we enjoy hosting field trips around the area so our volunteers can experience some of what the area has to offer.

The small village of Nemcinany is nestled between rolling hills and fields full of crops and flowers. It is truly beautiful and perfect for those keen on a dose of nature! The village offers a small shop and pub, but we also take regular trips to larger villages or the closest city for supplies and can take volunteers to run their errands too.

Our closest city is Nitra, which you can get to easily by bus or train. We can pick you up from there or from Bratislava if that is easier.
