"There, where work gets a new dimension" is the title that has accompanied from 29 June to 6 July 2014, the fifth SummerJob, carried out in the outskirts of the city of Broumov, in the northwest region of the Czech Republic. 130 young people have spent their holidays with activities in six different villages for a total of 90 houses: cut and prepare the wood for the winter, clean the stables and barn, attics, do gardening work.
A work started a year ago because first it's important to find a corner of a periphery which engage; establish the necessary agreements with the authorities of the place and especially forming relationships during the year with the local community to understand needs and requirements.
And from there you go: the classrooms of a school are transformed into makeshift dormitories; the boardroom of the town changes function in the canteen of the day and place of meetings in the evening. The churches often abandoned, then, come alive during the day with the singing at Mass and adoration of silence for the evening.
Three years in the same region, then you change the destination. But in the long term to have benefits: the young people of the place, with the help of priests, continue this project.
"I'm here for the fifth time and come to rest from the office where I work - we are told -: better than staying on the beach. Here I meet so many young people and help people. "
