I am Nini Nemsitsveridze from Georgia and I love volunteering.
I think volunteering is the best thing to do to change yourself and help others.
The first I want to say it that the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the world a lot. I think the world needs to get back to the old life. So, I started to search the volunteer projects. BITISI helped me to find the interesting project in Sivas, Turkey “Working together to make a difference”
In the beginning I didn`t know that this project was mine, but when I read the info pack OMG yes, I need this 😊 I`ve graduated Bachelor of Arts in Oriental Studies, TURKOLOGY – Ivan Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, Faculty of Humanities. So, Turkish language, culture and Turkey, is that, what I was missing during the pandemic.
Volunteering helps me to know myself better and to stay young long time. Meet new people, see the differences of other countries and cultures and learn new things.
What about program or SIVAS? Program is SUPER and SIVAS is really good city to life after pandemic.
