The Rose of Solidarity
Start date: Aug 1, 2014, End date: Dec 1, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Istituto delle Figlie di Santa Maria della Divina Provvidenza-Casa Santa Rosa is a rehabilitation center that, according to its history and mission, acts in support of the autonomy of the mentally disabled people through the application of Guanelliana pedagogy. The healthcare support aimed at maintaining physical functioning in merely preparatory to the care of the most important mission for this type of structure: social and cognitive enabling or rehabilitation of the disable person, as individual inserted into his/her society. It is therefore a structure called "home" not as a refuge from society, but as a cozy and protected starting point to identify all those special needs that can have an answer by developing, strengthening, realizing an individual path within the society, because the disable person is part of it, and must continue to be part of it. A range of activities, structured but very flexible and sensitive to outside contributions and innovation that can result from it, can offer a strong growth experience for a young person interested in dealing with disability and its potential, rather than with its limitations. A strong belief that the presence of young people from France and Spain within Casa Santa Rosa will reinforce the action of supporting the autonomy of people with disabilities, who would live in this way a daily European dimension, based on human relationships. The project the Rose of Solidarity offers an EVS opportunity during which 2 european volunteers will spend 9 months of their life, investing their energies and creativity for supporting disabled girls in building their own space in society.
