I care about you
Start date: Aug 22, 2016,
End date: Oct 21, 2017
Since several years, we have been working in contact with youths and this experience encouraged us to write this project. We have noticed that youths are apathetic and indifferent to the social and political issues. They are not interested in learning or getting information on what happened around them and they build up their ideas on what they hear from media or from the social networks. This causes a misunderstanding around the migrant phenomenon and it rises feelings of racism and xenophobia. With this project, we want to give the opportunity to the participants to make an experience that can change their point of view and to transform them in active citizens. From this need, we decided to write the project “I care about you”. The objective of the project aims to:Offer to 8 youths to make an experience of working in a project of social inclusionFight against stereotypes and prejudice on different culturesHelp them to gain new knowledge and competences useful for funding a jobRise in the volunteers pro-social attitudesBoost them to be active citizenship.We will be selecting 8 volunteers, 4 boys and 4 girls, aged between 18 and 30 years old. We will be sending 4 guys, 2 girls and boys, working in 2 different organizations KEAN (for 6 months) and CIVIS (12 months).We are looking for volunteers that will have a strong motivation in challenging their life.Volunteers will be in charge of:Organizing workshops (of theatre, art, dance, etc.)Organizing Greek language course for the migrant children and woman Creating and developing places where the parents of the children involved in the project could exchange their experiences and their fearsCreating and organizing activities that can put in communication public institutions and migrant families for helping them to get their services and for facilitating the entrance, in the public schools, of their childrenWorkshops for the women for learning what are their rightsThis project will have a good impact on the beneficiaries of the project because the activities will help them to be included in the Greek society avoiding all the problems that social exclusion creates.
