Volunteering with Legis

Volunteering with Legis

From 15 of February until 23 of March 2018, Legis was the host of Jessica Blanarik, a volunteer from the US. During this period, Legis carried out educational and social support activities aimed at the refugees/migrants residing in the Tabanovce Transit Center. In particular, Jessica was giving English lessons to a group of refugees/migrants who had no previous knowledge of English. This activity has been quite beneficial for the residents since in the end, they managed to acquire an elementary level of English, which they will certainly need regardless of their decision to stay in Macedonia or leave.

On the last day of her volunteering term, Legis staff threw a small party in order to thank Jessica for her contribution to our programme activities and efforts she had invested in the aforementioned period. That being said, Driton Maliqi, Legis’ field coordinator, gave Jessica a certificate of appreciation for having volunteered with Legis.

This activity has proved to be important and useful for the refugees since they never missed a class which suggests their interest in learning the language. Therefore, Legis will continue implementing these joint educational activities performed by our staff and volunteers.

All those who would like to support these activities can donate online on our website on the following link: http://legis.mk/donate.
