In the city of Petrinja, a city with lack of opportunities for youth and children, there isn't much cultural content. City has the highest unemployment rate in Croatia. The spirit of EVS, which we thrive to bring in the community, could help everyday life of the citizens. At least, give to the youngest in the community, opportunity to meet different cultures and learn more about the EU and EU values. With the help of the staff and local volunteers at association IKS, EVS volunteers will make hand puppets for educational purposes,prepare scenarios and scenary for the Puppet theatre and preform the shows. In their work they will use multimedia and make short Puppet movies(Puppet TV). The puppets will present an amusing and innovative way to transfer new knowledge and messages to children.
Main objectives of the project are:
Objective 1. Promoting human rights, anti-discrimination and tolerance among children and young people, in a creative and fun way
Objective 2. Promotes cooperation and volunteering in the youth field.
Objective 3. Encourage gender equality
The EVS volunteers will, in an existing production workshop in IKS, make hand-made dolls mostly from locally produced raw and recycled materials, visually tailored to the target group of children and will cover all aspects of receiving and processing new information. The manufacturing process of dolls will be defined by stages:
2. drawing and cutting out
3. gluing and sewing,
4. finishing work (eyes, hair, etc.)
The process of preparing the play will also be carried out in phases:
1. devising a scenario (an amusing and humorous way to transfer the message/knowledge to children)
2. preparation of scenery
The Puppet TV will be divided in stages:
1.adapting the existing scenario for the film
2.recording the film
4.putting the film on YouTube chanel of Association IKS
In addition, EVS volunteers will lead creative workshops for children in the Community centre of the Association IKS.
With this project, we want to give a chance to 3 volunteers from EU countries to work in our Association. Profile of desirable volunteers is determined by the nature of the project. Characteristics of volunteers refer to the virtues, motives, knowledge and skills inherent in every human being, without any discrimination. The basic requirement is that it is a young person with fewer opportunities, and within this categorization of the unemployed person aged between 18 and 30 years, although this will not be the decision making factor for all three candidates, considering the skills required in the project.
