“It seemed too good to be true in advance, but it really turned out to be a great experience!”
Edo went to Croatia for 7.5 months where he worked on a sustainability project. This EVS project called “European Friends for Green Trends” is sponsored by the Erasmus + program.
In the beginning, the European Voluntary Service (EVS) offer sounded too good to be true in my ears. In exchange for doing a variety of volunteer work, you receive financial compensation. I had previously done a volunteer project in China – which, by the way, was great – but you had to dig into it. This was not the case with EVS: the offer was as good as promised.
