Description de la mission :

Kaunas l’Arche community is a small faith-based community of friendship and mutuality between people with intellectual disability and those who assist them. Community life, spirituality and professionalism are the desired basis of our organization.
The community operates as a Day center, Social workshop, living home and supported decision-making department. The mission of l’Arche communities is to reveal the gifts of people with or without disabilities through close and communal relationships.
We believe that every person has unique value and can enrich our world by his/her unique personality and abilities.

Tâches du volontaire :

During the day people with disability assisted by employees and volunteers do ceramic or wood works, make candles, soap, take care of home and garden and do daily duties together. Also, there are common activities, feasts, trips, camps, other events during the weekends or other time.
