The activities Dagtek offers are divided into several sections in different areas. The volunteer will assist partly in our arts & crafts workshop and partly in life skills activities. It is also possible to partly assist in FIX-TV (a small group working with film and media) if the volunteer has skills in that field. The volunteer can also take initiative to arrange small workshops with different themes, for instance at this moment our volunteers are offering a weekly cooking class and Beauty Salon.  Dagtek’s life skills activities, offer guidance and support to small groups of 2-4 participants. These activities are tailored to each participant’s condition, interests, and needs. Approximately twenty people engage in daily activities like music, arts and crafts, painting, games, and outdoor walks.
