EVS in Romania

We, Organizatia Tinerilor cu Initiativa (O.T.I.), a local NGO from Romania (EI Ref 2007-RO-43), are looking for volunteers!!!

The dead line for our project is 1st of February 2011, the date when our project will be submitted to our National Agency for evaluation and approval.

Our project is called “Closer to You.Ro.pe”, and it’s going to start in September 2011, for a 10 months period.

The project was born from our organization’s desire to bring the youngsters from our local communities, where the project is going to be implemented, one step closer to European Union and its youngsters. The projects idea started from another EVS project implemented by our organization, project in which the volunteers had to do a research work about the life of the youngsters from local communities and about the problems that they are facing.

The results of their research work became reasons for action, as some of their conclusions were that:

– youngsters don’t care much about the environment and are not taking any actions for preserving or cleaning it;
– the youngster perception about European Union is very low and they don’t have good knowledge about the role of Romania as a state member is about, and also about their role in the society as European citizens;
– most of the youngsters know very little about the other countries that are EU members and about other countries outside EU;
– the gap between Roma youngsters and the other youngsters is very deep, both ethnics are manifesting low tolerance for the other, situation that should not exist in the “European Family”;
– a lot of kids are left home only with their grandparents, because the parents are working outside Romania’s borders, a thing that has major repercussions in the youngster life, affecting them on a personal, social or educational level;

For the reasons mentioned above and more, our organization decided to develop this EVS. This project will continue the work started by the other group of volunteers, in their try to solve some of the problems that our youngsters are confronting with, by continuing some of their already started activities and developing new ones.

Activities developed are going to be:
• Conducting a research work about the life of Roma minority in the local communities, observing their life style, their problems, their mentalities, their traditions…
• POSTCARD FROM DRAGANESTI – POSTCARD FROM EUROPE: it’s a project started by the other volunteers with the youngsters inside the schools. They tried to put in contact the youngsters from our schools with the others from the schools in their countries, by creating a bridge between them with the help of the postcards, made by them. The youngsters created the postcards and sent them to the others from the partner schools. In this way they managed to create a very good connection between schools from Romania, Italy, Poland, France, and Germany.
• PRINCIPAL FOR A WEEK: it’s another project developed by our volunteers. For a week you are going to take the principals place, observe the things inside the school, give advices, elaborate some plans that you think that can improve the things in the school, in short words you are going to be the chief of the school (you will have to consult with the real principal of course before making some major changes ?);
• LETTER FROM MY EUROVILLAGE: it is a project that, together with the POSTCARD PROJECT, will even bring closer the youngsters coming from different backgrounds, societies, economical environment, social and ethnic, and will contribute at promoting better understanding and collaboration among them;
• ECOLOGICAL CAMPAIGNS (PHOTOS AND EXHIBITION): as resulted from other volunteers research and observations, youngsters doesn’t seem to care much about this vital issue for European Society and the whole world, which is the environment. That is why with this ecological activities we are trying to motivate them, to make them more responsible and more concerned related to this. Also the photos and the exhibition, that will gather all the photos, is going to stimulate their creativity, innovation and involvement.
• PUPPET THEATRE: Puppet theatre is a project that will contribute in improving and developing new abilities to all the persons involved, both volunteers and youngsters.
• EuRo GAMES: will have the role to teach the youngsters about the European Union, about its values, about its countries
• ARCHEO ACTIVITIES (activities made at the museum, with the kids from here, discovering objects and artifacts in archeological sites): the area where our project is going to be implemented has numerous sits and archeological artifacts. Together with the youngsters and under the guidance of the Museum Director you will have the chance to go back in time discovering old civilizations.
• YOUTH NEWS PAPER: the volunteers will have the chance to put the basis of an newspaper, where they are going to be the coordinators an the editors. They’ll have the chance to learn or improve their artistic skills, in creating the layout of the newspaper, and their journalistic abilities.
•“DRAGANESTI – begin of the journey”: it is going to be a small travel guide that will contain information about the journeys that you made around the country, tips and advices about some of the experiences that you had on your traveling and other information that you would like to share.
• EXTRA ACTIVITIES – besides the activities that we described you, your ideas about other activities that you would like to develop here will be most than welcomed and put into practice.

Based on our previous experience with EVS, we’ve learned that a project like this will suit best to volunteers which are:
• creative
• open to discover and willing to get involved in new experiences
• happy to work with young people (even kids of 13-17 years);
• willing to make a difference;
• willing to work in an international team.
