"We have to do what we can to help wherever and whenever it is possible for us to help."
Volunteers are giving their time and life serving in refugee camps. Now, it's time for us to give them what they need - trainings, skills and knowledge - to continue their journey.
We're living in the 21th century and refugees are still not engaged in normal life and seen as normal citizens. We are giving the opportunities for volunteers to share their experience to change the Stereotypes of refugees.
Online Database (Vlogs and Blogs)
"Democracy is interactive. It’s a constant job of information, education, explanation, listening and interactive communication.“
We made sure that our project contains the 5 most important factors to achieve real change and strengthen democracy in Europe.
1 Mentally and physically well trained volunteers to work with refugees in Europe
2 Promotion of inclusion of foreigners in Poland
3 Promotion of intercultural dialogue
4 Promotion of civil activity
5 Online Data Base, sharing volunteers stories
6 Implementing activities in 5 countries
The project is innovative due to the fact that it is empowering international volunteers and giving them all skills, knowledge and trainings, provided by professional trainers, they need, to be able to work in refugee camps. The approach proposed by the project is to improve the acceptance of refugees and willingness for intercultural dialogue of youth by visits in schools, universities and open conferences. The innovative factor in the project is to implement small projects in their countries.
Seeing a friend after volunteering in a refugee camp, mentally and psychologically devastated, having special treatment and medicines to sleep at night, showed us, volunteers need such trainings. Living in Poland, made us experience the lack of diversity and the need for multicultural dialogue.
1 Volunteers, from 5 different european countries, working in refugee camps.
