The participating employees come from different companies within the VKR Group and represent different languages. They do not know each other in advance, however, they quickly form a strong connection in the common project.
It is hard work, however, there is time for a bit of sightseeing to get an impression of Romania. The work varies, but mostly within construction and renovation: wall-building, plastering, sanding and painting.
