EVS, or European Voluntary Service, is the EU project that enables a young person (18–30 years) to become a volunteer in another country for between 2 to 12 months. The fields of service vary from environment, arts and culture, activities with children, young people or the elderly, heritage or sports to leisure activities. The project has to take place in a country other than the country of origin of volunteers. The basic condition is that it is non-profit-making and the volunteers remain unpaid. This year EVS has become incorporated into the new Erasmus+ .

As a result of a call from November 2013 for five positions for volunteers from: UK, Poland, Ireland, Italy and Finland we have recruited a group of volunteers who were willing to work with Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities in Kosovo for 10 months by assisting local BSF staff. Each of them has been assigned to specific projects corresponding to their professional background.

All new volunteers will stay with us till the end of November this year. We are very happy to have them here and appreciate their contribution to our activity.
