Adapted Camps and Youth meetings

Manon’s ESC at Tzama school (France) - The impact of the Covid-19 situation on my project

I feel extremely lucky to be part of this ESC project as it allows me to work full-time, in person, and without too many constraints compared to other projects. The school has been opened since my arrival in September despite the various restrictions. It has just closed for a week this month (April 2021). We had to be creative to offer online activities to the children and we had a lot of fun making videos with the two other volunteers!

EVS - an experience abrought: Sophia talks about her work with Views

My name is Sophia. I am a 22-year old German volunteer for Views international. From the three possible internships with the Belgian branch of the association, I chose to work in the office of Views because neither my knowledge in French nor my comprehension of children qualified me for the other two options. This article shall now report a bit on my European Voluntary Service (EVS).

Although you probably know the projects of Views International, I’ll shortly reexplain what my tasks with Views are about.

Q: Hello Stavroula. Thank you for having this interview with me!
My first question concerns your strength of sight: are you fully blind

A: no I have still some sense of light but I had visual problems scince birth

Q: But you visited a normal school or did you go to a special Greek institution for visually impaired?

A: No, I did not. I went to a normal kinder garden and later started in a normal school. After graduating there I made my Specialization at public law at the University of Athens. Currently I am a doctoral candidate and working as a lawyer the same time.

Music-key project

a

Today what was from the Belgian perspective a very successful project has come to an end. Only a week long, but enough memories to last a life time. As the days went by, our body clocks may have gone out of sync but not so our group spirit, which strengthened with each exchange. And as our voices were gradually lost in the rehearsals, we have found the energy to push forward and compensate for what we may have lost in vocal capabilities by sheer enthusiasm.
