Let's Welcome Them : volunteer Service for Integrated Education for Rwandese Children with Special Educational Needs
Start date: Dec 1, 2010,

This group EVS project involves two youth volunteers from Poland who are to assist children with disabilities and fewer opportunities in primary schools in Rwanda during their service for a period of 5 months from January to May 2011. The activity evolves around the theme of disability and anti-discrimination. Primarily, the service is aimed at providing opportunity for youth volunteers from relatively remote areas in Poland to leam from their experience, trials and errors to collaborate with local stakeholders from different cultural backgrounds as equal partners. The project is designed also to encourage initiatives of the Polish volunteers to counteract views leading to exclusion and discrimination, especially prevalent in remote and depressed parts of Poland. In the project, the volunteers will directly work with teachers, parents and pupils from local schools in Rwanda and take part in organisation of training and mobilisation of community members to improve access to education for disadvantaged children. The volunteers will receive support to post blog/website during their service in Rwanda and educational events back in Poland for 1 month in June 2011 in order to share their experience and thoughts with peer youths in Europe and the rest of the home communities, calling them for reflection and action.
