Voices From Around The World II
Start date: Dec 1, 2009,
Voices From Around The World II has been developed around the themes of sustainable community development, intercultural dialogue and creative non-formal learning. Two groups of five volunteers from Austria, Estonia, France, Italy and the UK will participate in community development projects in India, Nepal and Senegal for 6 months at a time. Concurrently, a volunteer from Senegal, Nepal and India will be hosted by CE.S.I.E in Italy for 10 months. The sense of a group EVS will be emphasised by the volunteers in the different activities sharing training and evaluation moments.The objectives focus on the personal and professional development of the volunteers, their role in promoting active participation and positive intercultural dialogue, the development of the local hosting communities, the creation of new YiA projects and new partnerships, and mutual capacity building of the hosting organisations.Activities will include collaborating with the local communities and local volunteers in non-formal education projects in local schools, developing awareness campaigns connected to nutrition and welfare, developing local, regional and international networking opportunities, facilitating micro-credit initiatives and environmental awareness projects. The fundamental and transversal aspect is that of community involvement.Creative thinking is fundamental to this project as it will add innovation to the project by enabling\hevolunteers to employ creativity in the intercultural context of community development.
