Brno, Apr 16 (BD) – Many of us would love to volunteer, as a way of helping others and giving back to society. However, it can be hard to find opportunities for this when living outside your home country; many of those most in need of assistance may also be the least likely to speak English. However, Brno non-profit organisation NESEHNUTÍ may be able to help charitable-minded expats find a way to get around this obstacle.

The Volunteering Days 2023 are approaching, with over 70 participating organisations offering more than 170 volunteer programs. NESEHNUTÍ is one of them, and will open its doors to anyone interested in volunteering on Thursday, 27 April, including a range of opportunities to volunteer using English.

NESEHNUTÍ is an independent social-ecological movement based in Brno. “Since our foundation in 1997, we have been working closely with volunteers, who are an integral part of our team,” said organisation spokesperson Marek Hadrbolec. “Together we encourage people to be responsible towards others and the environment and we strive for changes that will transform our surroundings for the better.” 

One of NESEHNUTÍ’s main goals is also to help foreigners that come to Brno get around and to engage them in various activities, such as the Kulinárna project.

Hadrbolec encouraged anyone interested to get involved: “Take the opportunity to make a difference – volunteer in NESEHNUTÍ and spend your time doing what really matters.”
