a few words from one volunteer (Jorge)

Hello, my name is Jorge, I'm 26 years old and I come from Portugal. I'm here in athens since the 15th of January for doing an evs Program at EDRA for 6 months. The motivations that lead me to enter this adventure were basicaly to participate in a project that i could be useful and give/receive experience. it didn't have nothing to do with my work area (environmental engineering). And what else do i have to say in this short period of time that i'm here? OK, the people of EDRA are fantastic, they support-me in everything, i live in the center of Athens with other volunters from diferent nationalities, and thats all folks! PS: why didn't i do this before?
