In this issue we propose you to read a report from our General Assembly, to see what happened at the youth exchange in Vraca, Bulgaria, get up to date about our Strategic Partnership project, we will also introduce you Value the Difference, a project that we joined and last but not least we have a new channel of communication.

EVS 2015-2016

As we announced in one of our last issues our EVS project was accepted. Last month they had their visit and now they are here.
We wish all of them a lot of success in their projects and a nice stay in Belgium, their hosting country.
In the upcoming issues of your VIEWS News you will get the opportunity to get to know each of them and their respective projects. But have a little bit of patience. They need time to get to know first their new environment.

It is a project that involves visually impaired persons and we accepted to join them. At the beginning of November the first activity, a training, will take place in Cluj Napoca Romania.
