Hello, I am Tamta Rurua from Georgia. I am
a volunteer in Ústí nad Labem. I came in Czech
Republic five months ago. I am working with
My EVS journey started when I decided to apply for
a project in Czech Republic. I took such a decision, I took
an academic year in University and decide to leave everything
that I had and getting ready to meet something
very new. Even after five month of my EVS I can say that
it was worth it.
Both of my sending and host organizations are YMCA.
When I came to a new organization for me in Czech
Republic I was a little afraid, because it’s always hard
to expect something, you meet new people and have to
communicate in a different language. After the very first
day I could say that I was lucky, because I saw that the
people who works in YMCA is very very helpful, kind and
domestic. They give me great opportunities, new vision
I am working with children in Club Orion. Variety of my
project is so useful. I am learning how to manage a lot
of things. My organization gave me opportunity to write
some projects, it is very important to me and my future.
It motivates me to find a way and try as many chances
as I have here.
In Orion I started realizing that people with different cultures
and different ages can communicate and understand
each other. We help to each other, this way I gained
another perspective in life. I gained a better understanding
towards other people. To me cultural differences
are one of the most interesting; it’s a big opportunity
to learn from people with different backgrounds, other
kinds of perspectives. My organization gave me chance
to be more energic and try to use my daily routine more
useful. One day in a week I am a member of archery and
climbing club. It is really a big motivation and energy.
All my week is totally different and interesting. I really
can say that this experience taught me many things but
most of all it helped my self-development.
You got a dream, you gotta protect it never give up on
