Mini-camp in Doro

Reconstruction work

Last weekend SCI Switzerland organised a short mini-workcamp: seven volunteers from different parts of Switzerland met in the beautiful village of Doro (Ticino), where «Doro´s Meeting centre» (“Zentrum für Begegnung Doro”) is located.

During the weekend (from the 19th of June till the 21st of June), when this mini-camp took place, the volunteers had a chance to learn a bit about the history of the Doro centre, which was founded in the 70-s by a group of young people to create an alternative community, and also take part in the reconstruction work: to work on the stone wall construction and to dig a ditch, where water pipes will be laid.

The last but not the least, they were able to enjoy the beautiful mountain views and share opinions on lots of different topics.

Volunteers at GAIA Kosovo organised a special Sunday fully dedicated to art, in the social and cultural place “Social Space for Deconstruction”.
