THE WALL IN THE KINDERGARDEN Školjkica in Betina painted by volunteers.
Volunteer actions through the project “Investing in young people – the GLUE project” took place throughout the first week in October, and at the third day of the youth exchange program volunteers were painting the wall in the courtyard of the Školjkica kindergarten in Betina.
This creative volunteering task was very much appealing to our participants. Although 40 volunteers participated in the action to paint over 10 meters of the wall, there was a place for each of participant to give a part of their creativity to this collective wall art. As the group was divided into 4 same size teams, which painted olive and apple trees with meadows, flowers, bees, birds, bumblebees, butterflies and many other things favourite to the children. Prior to the painting the mural volunteers prepared it, coloring the wall with a white background.
We had cheered up local children and made the space they use every day lively, leaving a lasting memory of this international youth exchange project The GLUE.
Big thanks to preschool teachers and children for cooperation!
