We are working with children and youngsters with mental disability or/and with learning or behavioural problems. These youngsters and children are often pushed on the edge of active social life. Activities of our association promote inclusive culture and socialising among all children and youngsters from different educational, cultural and social backgrounds. The basics of this free time activities is connecting children and youngsters through playing and spending time together.Project 'The name of the game: inclusion' is an EVS project including partners from Greece and Spain. The project will take place in Ljubljana. We will host the two volunteers for 10 months, from the 2. 9. 2016 until the 30. 6. 2017. The themes of the project are disability - special needs, inclusion- equalitiy, creativity and culture. Our past experiences have shown that common activities and connecting people through games and playing are an effective tool against discrimination. We use games and playing as a pedagogical tool. The volunteers will have the opportunity of realising their own project and being included in the inclusive project that are carried out within the association. We also want the volunteers to play an active role in experiental pedagogy project activities that we organise, outdoor activities and especially our international events ‘Play with me’ (sports event, cultural event, travelling exhibition and puppet performances, festival).The aim of the project is to promote the exchange of experiences among youngsters from different cultural and social backgrounds, to give the youngsters and children the opportunity to learn about other countries and cultures, to promote values as democracy, freedom, human rights. The project encourages learning about differences and the accepting of them. The effect of EVS project is widely recognised, not only with those that have a direct contact with it, but also with the local area and its people.
