Azkarate 2008 sign up deadline extended to June 15

EuskoSare has extended the application deadline for the Azkarate Palace reconstruction project, located in Lower Navarra. This volunteer reconstruction project will convert the Palace into an International Center for the Basque diaspora. It will be a meeting point for all the Basques and descendants of Basques who have an interest in tracing back their origins.

People who are interested in participating in the third consecutive edition of this volunteer- and service-based project have two more weeks to sign up.  Here are some of the requirements:

  • To be between 18 and 45 years old at application date
  • To be a member of some type of Basque organization
  • Fill out an application form with your personal information

The volunteer field work will include five-hour working days consisting of painting, cleaning and building a wall around the Palace.  During free time, volunteers will enjoy several varied cultural activities, which will be coordinated by one of the organizers, the Concordia Association. The association specializes in international cooperative projects.  Activities will include excursions to other locations of interest such as the Southern Basque Country, Lapurdi and Xiberoa.

You have until June 15th, come join us!
