In our country, a lot of young people opened the gate to Europe and adapted themselves rapidly to the abroad. As the Foundation of the Disabled Education Culture Health Sport, we consider European Voluntary Service important. The disabled or non-disabled youth who appeal to our Foundation to go abroad as part of the given activity are suffering from
inexperience about the European mobility because they seriously lack European Union information and financial possibilities. As the Board of Management of the Foundation, we wish to enable the disabled or non-disabled youth to serve voluntarily in media in which there are people with different languages and cultures without reciprocity and can be glad about this and to make a contribution to their awareness about European Union and their rehabilitation and their mental, physical and personal development, to gain self-confidence, learn the language of the country that they go and English, the common language, be used to living by planning with depending on a specific budget, become socialized and acquire life philosophy deepness about Europe and European citizenship that they will remember throughout their life.
In accordance with these aims, we are concentrated by reaching an agreement with our partners. Our young volunteers will go to Europe and they will expand the understanding and consciousness of global Europe a European citizen. They will learn the volunteering understanding in European level by living with different people. They will take the opportunity to have the sensibility and care to the nature and the animals as well as the people that we need to display by comparing within European dimension.
One of the aims of the European Volunteer Service is gaining a multilateral learning experience by integrating to the locality, recognizing other life styles and job settings, feeling to be needed with taking responsibility and being known much with living the youth who is coming from a different culture for a length of time in the culture of another country. To this end the young volunteers coming from abroad to be hosted in our Foundation shall be introduced to our culture and way of life as much as possible. By this activity, the volunteers who will be sent to abroad and be hosted by us will reach all of the above mentioned experiences.
In planning of the activities, the priorities and the aims of Erasmus+ Program are all considered. To this end, the aim of our EVS partnership with EU countries is to encourage the disabled or nondisabled volunteer youth for thinking the issues about Europe including European Citizenship and endeavoring to reflect the basic characteristics of European society. Besides, our Project is encouraging them to take an active role in their own nation or in European Union countries. They will become sensitive to the people, to all creatures, to the nature and to the environment by means of the personal care of the people to who they will help in the institutions in which they will serve and themselves. They will understand the European mentality and stand with each other in a collaboration with the people in the institution and the region whereabouts. On the other side, they will make progress in European atmosphere culturally and socially due to social activities, environmental cleaning and animal care that they will attend as part of the Project. In our Projects, there are activities about children, disabled people and youth center and this will help about perceiving the volunteering concept and EU consciousness in the volunteers who will be sent and be hosted by us. We want to attract attention to the fundamental universal humanity values in all respects with the new approach named "Smile Without Disability" that we refer to European philosophy with its name.
