Challenge

Slowly deteriorating cultural heritage is a contrasting counterpart of active consumers life of young people. There are hundreds of old monasteries, castles and churches in Slovakia. And thousands of people who could exploit their time in more meaningful way.

Solution

We want to create a space for simplicity, without stress and without technology, offers the opportunity to experience history firsthand. This raises friendships for life and young people are growing in strong values such as service, cooperation and selflessness.

Long-Term Impact

We are hoping to preserve the 17th centure monastery for future generations and to create great experiences and memories for our volunteers who will continue with their effort to make this world a better and more consiouss place.
