ACT - Training Seminar

This past week, myself and the other members of the ACT project as well as Mafalda, a member of EVS team of USB, took part in a four day training exercise orchestrated by our USB team and held at the old FIX factory. These seminars were part of preparing ourselves for work on the frontlines of the refugee crisis in Northern Greece. The four days covered teambuilding and what to expect from working with refugees as well as basic photography and videography training.

"I left Focsani richer in the heart", an EVS experience in Romania

Buna oameni…or simply hello people! As you can obviously see I managed to learn some Romanian after spending nine whole months there in the city of Focsani. During these nine months I completed my unique EVS experience, which really made me realize a lot not only for the people I worked with and the Romanian culture, but also about Sophia, the true me.

Truly not many people know that the boarders of Europe don’t finish in Portugal, but they reach the exotic Martinique.

"The Mosaic of different personalities that was created will never be forgotten", Youth Exchange in Ukraine

Lviv, Ukraine. During a cold and humid September, no one could have told us that a previously unknown city to us, would have created so many memories and feelings for us. Describing how remarkable and unprecedented this experience was would require a whole book of noting all the small details that made it so. But since there is space limit, I will only say this. The things we unconsciously and consciously learned during 2 weeks of constant exchange of opinions and knowledge would have required 2 whole years of dedication and research for someone to learn.

"In the beginning it was just an idea, in the end it was the best experience ever!", Training Course in Austria

In the beginning it was just an idea, in the end it was the best experience ever.

Sitting on my PC as every day, doing nothing important and then the post of United Societies of Balkans came in front of my eyes. Call for participants for a project about extremism and xenophobia in Vienna. First thought: Hmm maybe. Second: Why not? Third: Do the application NOW. And I did it, and I was selected and I went there and YES it was the best experience of my life.

"When travelling abroad you should know that you are like a canvas" this what the group that travelled to Romania said

This summer I had my first experience with the program called Erasmus +. Its was about Roma people (the way they live in Romania). It took place in Craiova, Romania, and it took about 11 days.

   Every passing day was ever more diverse, more and more beautiful. Gradually the ideas you had in your mind started to change. You see a new  vision of the world through the eyes of others and that's magic! You are no longer the same, because of the people who were with. You see their view and they see yours.

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:
