Living together in community
Start date: 01 Aug 2016,
End date: 30 Sep 2017
De Ark Gemeenschap Moerkerke-Brugge(l'Arche) is a community where people with and without learning disabilities work and live together. They share daily life and work. De Ark Moerkerke-Brugge has two houses and one worhshop and is providing a dayprogram for the people with disabilities. One participant will be joining us through the Erasmus+ project. Just like our own staff, he/she will live together with the others who live in the house, both people with and without disabilities. The goal is to share their daily life with these people, and assist them where needed. He/she will be part of a team and will be coached by his director.The tasks of the participants will vary. The main activity is spending time together with the people with disabilities (e.g. playing a game, cooking together). Participants will be part of the team and therefore also attend team meetings.The goal of this project is to broaden the social network of people with disabilities and to integrate them more into our society.Participants through the Erasmus+ program will learn to broaden their vision on the world and people around them, to look different towards people, and to build lasting relationships with people who are different from them. They will also learn practical skills of caregiving.
