ESCape the ordinary – Latvian edition

What is it like to be a long-term ESC volunteer? What kind of work should you expect for different social causes? From my experience which places are the best to work if you choose Latvia? Or even should you choose Latvia at all? 

ESCape the ordinary is back with a new Latvian edition! In this episode, you will get to know 10 different long-term projects in Latvia. For starters, my project at Vidusdaugavas NVO Centrs is to promote ESC and solidarity while traveling the country to create videos. But where else can you work:

  • Rezekne: European Association World Our Home
    (social cause: seniors & people with dissabilities)
  • Jekabpils: Jekabpils Bernu un jauniesu centrs (social cause: youth)
