Ville is back!

Hi my name is Ville and I just finished my 1 year EVS project at Martinique, it is sad to realize that it is actually over. Just crazy to think how fast everything went for me; I am still imagining myself at Fort-de-France airport meeting the hosting organizations international coordinator for the very first time.

The experience was amazing I got new friends, saw new places and of course worked with the local people. I did some handicrafts with elderly people; marionettes, flower arrangements, painting and so many other things. With youngsters my main project was community garden “Creole garden”, I was mainly helping them to build the actual garden, where they could grow different vegetables for their own use or to be sold. I also made a lot of posters for events that the organization was having and I also filmed and took photos of those events, which I later edited and published on their social media.

Of course my whole trip wasn’t happy happy joy joy, but in the end I wouldn’t change anything. I actually had such a good year that I am planning to go back to Martinique quite soon, and maybe even staying there.
