Maria's Life in Turkey Volume 3

Ankara is green!

The last two weeks slowly the colors around us here started to brighten. From  brown and its various shades and full green, everywhere in the city you can see bright green, white and pink blooms surround us.

Ankara is located in the middle Anatolia. The climate here is hot Mediterranean, dry-summer subtropical. In the far past forests were covering Ankara’s ground. Now after centuries of humans settling here,constructing and wars, Ankara has steppe like plants and trees. Meaning the trees naturally are few and far between.

"...provides me with the opportunity to make a difference.." lets see what Anna sais about her experience in her EVS

 The Social Incubator is a Romanian organization which supports youngsters who grew up in the child protection system (orphaned or abandoned) to integrate into society, both socially and professionally. Working with this organization for the past few months has helped me understand a lot about how an NGO works here and has given me the chance to step out of my comfort zone while working on a multinational level.

Here is a summary of my role within the team:

I ask the new people I meet for their recommendations, each ones unique point of view is bound to reveal a treasure at some point.

“Divided Memories 1940-1950”, an art route through history and experience

by Silvia Bartolotti

In this uncertain beginning of spring, there is an alternative way to spend a Sunday afternoon in town. The exhibition “Divided Memories 1940-1950” is organized by the Goethe-Institut and the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki in the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art.  
During the 1940s Greece was first subjected to a brutal Nazi occupation, and then laid to waste by three years of civil war. Though the hard times didn't keep the artists of the time from painting. On the contrary, the turbulent period served as inspiration to dig inside the darker aspects of mankind.

by Rino Maffione

Among the 30 articles of the Declaration of Human Rights there is one that refers to the Right to have access to a proper education. For most of us, in the north-western part of the world, this right is fully satisfied, we all can go to school and actually during our study years we hardly like to wake up early to attend lessons. So much so that our highly educated civilizations struggle to face the opposite problem, the dropouts. But in other regions of the world the struggle for education is real.
