Tepebaşı Social assistance and solidarity foundation running under Eskişehir Tepebaşı Governorship leads projects in order to balance the inequality in distribution of income, support disadvantaged people and strengthen the social solidarity between people. For sum up our aim is to lay a bridge between government and our citizens who need help.
Despite the financial support we provide for the people in need, we are aware that most of these people need also psychological and emotional help. To meet these people’s psychological needs, we have determined to organize a social support with this EVS project included 4 volunteers to provide guidance service to children, adults, refugees and asylum seekers. By this social support, we want to raise motivation of the people to be integrated to the society, assist their personal developments, training qualified individuals and raise their abilities to cope with the problems they have faced with. Thanks to EVS project, we will get support from young people from different countries to raise our assistance capacity and to increase the positive effect of our foundation on the society.
In our project, we these activities below for volunteers which are related to our organization's field of work. These are;
-Office work will be included preparation and evaluation of the week, supplying the materials for the week.
-Language trainings, social activities and personal development activities will be great advantages for the people in need. Our activities will be held in non-formal education techniques. In the language trainings, volunteers will be encouraged to use English and plus their native languages. There will be social activities for refugees and asylum seekers to get over with the shock they have experienced before coming to Turkey and to help them integrate to social life faster. We will be arranging these activities due to the expectations of the refugees and asylum seekers with out professional foundation employees. ( Such as cinema, reading, sport, art or social activities)
-Birthday activities and present donations are another important factor of our project. Birthday activities are aim to celebrate the birthdays of the kids in need in their houses or in our foundation one day in a week. In this activity kids, who probably has not received any present in their life time before, will be having their presents from a foreigner individual. We believe this activity will help stopping discrimination and racism in an early age when actually the subconscious and personality is being shaped.
Furthermore, the project primarily will influence the volunteers themselves. They will experience another culture and improve themselves.
