Vesle Daniel welcomes you
to learn more about the multitude of possibilities that international youth activities offers. This site is built around the many projects and activities that the Project Vesle Daniel has been involved in since 1999.
The menu at the top will take you to our different programmes, the menu at the left will provide you with more details about the subject. It may also be of use to look at our sitemap.
On the different parts of the site you may find diaries from exchanges, EVS volunteer travel stories, project descriptions, youth leader resources, advertisement for trainings and exchanges, videos from exchanges and many more things of interest.
This site is meant to be an international resource, due to this we attempt to have all written materials in English. Some of the information is in Norwegian; however this is mainly issues and articles of interest for Norwegians.
Please browse around. We welcome any feedback and ideas that may lead to improvement of the website.
We will expand the site to cover a wide range of international possibilities as time goes.
Many thanks to ex-EVS volunteer Juan Miguel Garrido Delgado that have designed this site, all financed trough a Future Capital grant from the Norwegian YOUTH programme, thanks a lot to the YOUTH programme as well. Juan has also recieved an additional Grant from The Sogn og Fjordane County towards designing this site.
