"RAZEM Z SĄSIADAMI" ("Together with neighbours")
Start date: Aug 1, 2014,
End date: Aug 31, 2015
Within the project "Together with neighbors " we want to invite two representatives of our eastern neighbors ( from Belarus and Ukraine ) for 10 months for voluntary work to Poland. Their activities will be held from September 2014 to June 2015 in two different places: the Ukrainian volunteer in Białystok Esperanto Association and the volunteer from Belarus in The school complex inGródek. Planned activities in the areas of European awareness and citizenship, creativity and culture, and working with children and young people have on main goal: “Together with neighbors”. We want for volunteers and residents of our region give a chance to meet and encourage joint action. We want to give space to compare historical, political, cultural and social experiences, to encourage the meeting between different cultures and mentalities, in order to understand and learn from each other.
The field of volunteer’s work will be: promotion the culture and language of Esperanto, active participation, and the possibility of non-formal education. Our aims we would like to achieve by using methods focused on being active and creative, for example workshops, meetings about cultures and languages, and active games.
As a result, volunteers reach valuable competencies that they will be useful in the future in the job market. The host organizations will receive support in their activities but also have the opportunity to spice up their educational offer about new and interesting aspects. Local community through the project will have the opportunity to learn tolerance and mutual respect, and will become more open-minded and showing understanding for the inhabitant of neighboring countries.
