VOICES OCTOBER 2021

Longer evenings and colder nights remind us that it’s already autumn outside. For many, it is a time when energy diminishes and the mood comes for activities that do not necessarily bring such joy during the summer. Who wants to sit under the blanket watching a sad movie when you can spend this time actively […]

VOICES SEPTEMBER 2021

“There are no rewards or punishments in nature: there are consequences.” – Robert Green Ingersoll A new edition of Voices is waiting for you, which introduces us to the new month – September. It is a breakthrough time of the year, not only for people but also for nature. In September, there is an autumn […]

VOICES AUGUST 2021

“Our human compassion binds us the one to the other.” As floods and wildfires are taking place in European countries, we are once again facing big challenges as a society. Let’s also not forget that we are still going through a pandemic. Everything is more difficult for us, but things are even more difficult for […]

VOICES July 2021

The temperature has considerably increased in Macedonia, and our daily lives are being replaced by visions of a dip in the sea or the swimming pool or a breath of air in the mountains. However, here in VCS, we are still working hard for you! Little by little, music events are being allowed, and we […]

VOICES June 2021

We can all agree that time had a different way of behaving during past year, for some it might feel like years; others tell how fast it went through their eyes. What was something that us, humans, social beings found most difficult, is distance from each other. Spring brought up what we were looking for; […]

VOICES May 2021

Hey, it’s May! What do you think about May? Isn’t it a very special month? Did you know that no other month of a given year starts or ends on the same day of the week as May does? May is a month full of change. In May the climate changes, the society changes, our […]

VOICES April 2021

Ah, Spring! It finally feels like Spring. We hear the birds,feel the sun warming our faces, start to ditch the scarfs and boots…So much more daylight, so much more energy. Parks become the place to be – nobody wants to stay inside on days like these. Camping starts to sound good after months of not […]

VOICES March 2021

As VCS is turning 15 years old, we are celebrating all the people that were inspired to grow in that time. But let’s be more specific! What is VCS all about? For me, it’s all about change and joy through small actions. Sure, volunteers are leaving their comfort zone behind to have new beginnings in […]

VOICES February 2021

A new beginning All good things must come to an end. My one-year European Solidarity Corps mission within the Youth NGO Volunteers Centre Skopje is almost over. It has been a particular year in an exceptional organization in a unique context. Living in downtown Skopje and being a VCS team member has been very inspiring. […]

VOICES January 2021

It seems that 2020 was a never-ending era but it also feels like we closed our eyes in March and now it’s 2021 already. However, now it’s not the time to see the bad – only the good. “New Year, new me”, right? It’s curious how hyped people are to celebrate another lap around the […]
