Give me your hand
Location: Sinop, Turkey
Period: 20/05/2016 – 17/07/2016
Deadline: 1 April 2016
The volunteer will work in the rehabilitation center where there are physically and
mentally disabled people up to 18 years old. In the first two weeks of the activity the volunteers will just observe the staff and the teachers in the center. After two weeks, they will choose the disabled people to work with the help of the staff in the center. The volunteer will organise fun time activities with the disabled people such as art, music, drama, dance, handicrafts, games, etc. At the end of the activity, we expect the disabled person to have at least one new skill. We also expect the volunteer to document the new skill she/he provided for the disabled person with film, photos, power point, etc.
The working hours: 08:30 – 12:00 and 13:00 – 16:30 weekdays. Between 12:00 and 13:00 is
lunch break. Saturdays and Sundays are off. The volunteer will have the basic information of SEN methodology to provide a new skill for the disabled people. The volunteer will also have some competences on intercultural competences in the mentor meetings. Even though the Erasmus+ program doesn’t cover the language support in the short term EVS projects, we think it is really important for our volunteers to communicate with our disabled people in Turkish. So there will be one hour a week Turkish courses to be used with the disabled people in the center free of charge. These will be the basic commands which are needed in the activities. The volunteer will organise a cultural night to present her/his culture with food, drinks, music, dance, film, etc. to the people we will invite including the press. We also ask the volunteer to bring an object which represents her/his culture to be exhibited in Sinopale – the International Sinop Biennial. The coordinating organisation may ask the volunteer to participate in their fund raising, raising awareness activities and tea parties, etc. once or twice during their activity period. At the end of the activity, the volunteer will get a Youthpass certificate. Practicalities: The volunteer will live in a furnished flat with the other volunteers who will start coming in the summer. The volunteer will have her/his own room but share the kitchen and bathroom.
There is wi- fi, hot water, kitchen tools, etc. The flat is 10 mins away from the center
