Me too! A worldwide EVS project for a more inclusive society.
Start date: Aug 1, 2012,
“Me too, a worldwide EVS project for a more inclusive society” is a group/individual long-term multilateral project promoting and supporting organizations’activities that aim at fighting social exclusion and marginalisation and which believe that through international volunteering new learning spaces for personal, professional and social development can be created. Partners are based in the EU (Italy, Spain, Germany, Lithuania), in SEE (Republic of Macedonia), in EECA (Armenia and Georgia), in Asia (India, Indonesia), in Latin America (Bolivia and Ecuador) and in Africa (Ghana, Kenya). 28 volunteers coming from these countries will have the opportunity to be involved in international activities addressed to different target groups: refugees, homeless, orphans, youngsters coming from rural areas, the elderly and disabled people. We expect to increase the numbers of qualitative EVS experiences on a worldwide context, which can have a stronger impact on volunteers and local communities and which can arise awareness of solidarity, intercultural learning and more over of social inclusion among those involved.The project intends to give priority to unemployed volunteers and those with fewer opportunities, it mainly includes also hosting organizations particularly interested in developing volunteers’ initiatives and inter generational dialogue, using formal and no-formal educational methods. The activities are planned to start on 1.10.2012 and they will last 9 months, including a 3 months based monitoring phase for identifying the impact that each activity has on local and individual levels, follow-up best practices will be shared among partners in order to implement constructively the project and valuing its results. “Me too” EVS project wants to encourage the work and the ideas of those who want to contribute to the construction of a more sustainable, inclusive society, where people feel recognized and where all have a voice.
