Déjame ver con tus ojos 2015
Start date: May 1, 2015,
End date: May 1, 2016
The main activity of this EVS project will take place in Santander ( Spain ) and also in the surrounding villages in Cantabria . Two volunteers from program countries , representing two organizations : IBO Italia in Italy and ProAtlantico from Portugal during 7 months collaborate with volunteering project ONCE . Upon arrival and after a technical training provided by ONCE experts in rehabilitation, experienced volunteers (with a few months experience) help the new ones to join the project because they accompany them in their tasks. That is to allow peer learning .
At ONCE both volunteers help affiliates (people with visual impairments) in their daily tasks, like for example, going to the doctor , shopping , errands at the bank, etc ... and they also accompany and participate in workshops and tours of the ONCE, cultural events and specific events facilitating their integration .
Moreover, volunteers will participate in various training and leisure activities carried out by Asociación Ser Joven (coordinating organization ) in Cantabria and campaigning activities to disseminate Erasmus + Youth in Action program in Santander and Cantabria, as our Viernes SVE, talks in schools , the Day of Volunteering in collaboration with the University of Cantabria in December.
The results of this project will be disseminated through training activities in collaboration with local stakeholders about Erasmus+ Youth in Action, such as Espacio Joven of Santander City Council and the Youth Service of the Directorate General for Youth of the Government of Cantabria.
In the long term we hope to collaborate with the sending organizations to host volunteers in the future and continue working with established protocols .
