Stuttgart, 28. September 2016
We hereby confirm that Sheng-Hua Huang has taken over the leadership of two
international work camps in Germany.
The international work camps were initiated by the registered charity „Internationale
Begegnungen in Gemeinschaftsdiensten e.V,“ (IBG). IBG was founded in 1965 to
promote voluntary work and international understanding. It is a member of the Alliance
of European work camp organizations and of the UNESCO’s Coordinating Committee of
International Voluntary Service.
A work camp normally consists of about 15 participants from different countries who are
willing to spend their free time doing voluntary services. Their age ranges from 18 to 27
years. The official language in the work camp is English. During the work camp the
international group lives and works together, which is to promote interest in other
cultures and mentalities.
The whole project challenges the work camp leaders in a particular way. The leaders
have to make use of their pedagogic and organizational abilities. Besides this, they
have to represent IBG in front of municipal authorities, in public and in the press.
Sheng-Hua Huang’s first project was in Irschenberg (Bavaria), taking place from May 6th
in 2015. He was responsible for nine international volunteers from Russia,
Serbia, Finland, Mexico, Great Britain and Turkey. The main task of the group was to
support a local Children’s Village that organized a sports cup for youngsters from all
over Germany. The work camp group prepared the area and accommodations, helped
out with catering and logistics, and supported all further upcoming tasks before, during
and after the event.
The second work camp took place in Waldsassen (Bavaria) from May 21st
to June 4th
2016. The six participants were from South Korea, Mexico, Russia, France and
Peacing the world together...

Germany, and the group’s task was to help out in the “Umweltstation” – an educational
institution that teaches people of all ages about environmental issues. The group carried
out not only gardening work, but also various renovation tasks.
As a camp leader, Sheng-Hua Huang also coordinated the daily life of the groups. That
contained the supplying and the financial management as well as the organization of
free time activities.
He cooperated successfully with the international work camp participants, the project
partners and the locals. Sheng-Hua Huang motivated the volunteers and encouraged
them to act responsible and on their own initiative. His good English language skills
enabled him to communicate with the international participants.
Due to his pedagogic, organizational and intercultural competences, Sheng-Hua Huang
has led both work camps to our entire satisfaction. We thank him for his engagement
and wish him the best with his future plans.
