Refugee Relief - Language Teaching Focus

Der Einsatz findet auf Englisch statt, deshalb ist die Beschreibung auf Englisch. Bei Fragen melde dich ungeniert!


The purpose of this mission is to serve the refugees passing through Serbia, to show the love of Jesus through relationship, activities and spending time


Located near the border of Croatia, OM is providing help for the refugees passing through in two local refugee camps.


In Adaševci Camp we have our ‘Tea Tent’ space and run the camp laundry. We are providing drinks in the OM tea tent, keeping the tent area clean, working in the camp laundry, socialising with refugees, and sharing Christ’s love with them.


In Šid Family Camp we are running a 'Beauty Room' for women, and facilitating games and activities for the children and teens.


You will work 5 days a week in Adaševci Camp, facilitating simple, and casual language lessons with the young single men. You will plan and run simple, casual language activities. They want to learn English, and/or German.


We are currently not running any structured language lessons (or have we ever in the past) but we have opportunity. The number of guys who will join, and the frequency they come will be inconsistent - but while they are in Adaševci camp there are always some refugees who would love to use their time in this way.


You will also help our team out with our regular jobs in the tea tent, laundry and potentially visit Sid Family Camp weekly.


*Please note, we will assist you with resources and ideas, however we would love people who would like to pioneer this opportunity. You will need to be ok to be a little independent and self directed, while also working under our team and the camp rules. English can be your second language.



Application deadline: At least 2 months before outreach starts.
