E-1: Relationship between LMTV and Workcamp
LMTV Volunteers can start their project by joining International workcamp in their receiving organization. We can regard this as the introduction period of the project. Volunteers can learn about the culture and society through the international worekcamp.
In some organization like Greenway Thailand, LMTV volunteers can also be a leader in an international workcamp. In this case, training for camp leaders is necessary to give them knowledge about the leadership.
E-2: Middle term Workcamp
What is the Middle term work camp?
It is a project of work camp where the volunteers from all over the world gather, stay and do voluntary work for 3 months.
The merits of the projects are, of course because the time is longer, then volunteers can:
1) Achieve bigger works and fruits
2) Learn much more about the theme of the project
3) Make deeper relationship among members and local people
Why does NICE organize this kind of activity?
To promote more continuous and specialized voluntary works than short term ones.
To improve international workcamps by helping the hosts and by improving quality of leaders.
To create opportunities for volunteers who want to join/can join only longer term service.
To activate not only host, but also local communities especially in depopulated areas.
To explore the places for international/weekend workcamps with affective combination.
There are already 3 cooperating organization NICE is working with now. Those are;Kodomo Art project, Kirari Suigen mura project, and Suigen Forest study group.
