Project Description:

The aim of the project is to contribute in achieving social inclusion of the people with disabilities and the young people with typical development through mobility and non formal education. Young people with disabilities in North Macedonia, especially the ones that are in the special schools rarely if not at all have the opportunity to participate in mobility activities or to meet young people from other countries. Because of this, Krik wants to implement 2 weeks volunteering activities in Romania, and host volunteers from Romania and France to encourage social inclusion. The group of 3 volunteers and a support person will have the opportunity to implement 2 week activities in other countries where they will promote their cultures and at the same time learn about the society of other countries and their similarities or differences. CYA Krik expects that the activities of the project will encourage greater participation of the volunteers on local and international level. The volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about money management, self-care and independent living and will have the chance for intercultural learning, soft skills development and actively taking part in the development of their local community through the project activities.

Conditions for volunteering:

With the support of their mentor and the Offensiva staff involved in this project, two volunteers with disabilities and one volunteer with typical development will have the chance to discover the local culture, the local craftsmen and old professions that are one of the essential in the society but are not so popular among young people. Prior to their arrival the participants will be presented with their activity timetable, which is attached to this application. The activity time table will be adjusted according to the needs and skills of the participants.

Support person:

The support person will be in charge to provide support in the participation and life of the volunteers during the stay in Romania. The support person will have the tasks to make sure that:

  • the volunteers are understanding their role,
  • they are participating in the activities,
  • they understand the activities,
  • translate conversations if needed,
  • support in the daily life and transportation

The support person will be also the link between the participants and both the sending and hosting organization.

Аccommodation: We will accommodate the volunteers in shared rooms of 2. The volunteers will share a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and living room with other volunteers we will host at the given time. Volunteers will have to respect internal rules for the hosting place.

Application procedure: If you think that this is an opportunity for you and would like to get more active in the activities, send us your motivational letter and CV at [email protected].

Deadline for applications: 08.02.2022

ЦМА Крик објавува повик за 1 волонтер на Филипини на 3 месеци

Your role

Aside from the global pandemic that every country is facing today, the Philippines is also battling natural calamities like typhoons every year. The Philippines is prone to tropical cyclones due to its geographical location which generally produce heavy rains and flooding of large areas and strong winds which result in heavy casualties to human life and destructions to crops and properties.

As this is an Emergency Call for Volunteers for a Disaster Response, no fixed programme can be provided. Hence, great flexibility is expected from the volunteers. The volunteers are expected to help on the following:

  • Disaster Response
  • Disaster Mapping
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Disaster Mitigation
  • Disaster Preparedness

Another Erasmus+ Capacity Building Project will be merged in the EVAP Project: DISARTY – Restoring Disaster Area through Community Based Tourism Youth-Led. DisArTY (Restoring Disaster Area through Community Based Tourism Youth-Led) aims to facilitate countries affected by natural disasters to develop strategies that guarantee the recovery of their human activity. These strategies will be based on community-based youth-led activities because they involve the communities that control, manage and develop their own tourism industry and represent a sector in which especially young people have an important role to play as the most dynamic and innovative part of this field.

The volunteers should expect activities and tasks related to DisArTY which may involve research, FGDs (Focus Group Discussions), seminar/training facilitation, among others.

Qualification & prerequisites

  • a strong motivation to work in team as a teamplayer or leader.
  • Be able to communicate in English (listening, reading,speaking and writing)
  • Believe in volunteering work changes people lives
  • Self-motivated and ability to managed their own time

Accomodation & Food

Due to the recent super typhoon RAI that hit Bohol, volunteers should be very flexible in terms of accommodation. We will, however, try our best to provide a comfortable setup and environment to the volunteers.

The volunteers will be placed in different sites in Bohol islands and will be staying in different accommodation during the 3 months volunteering period as each site are not close from each other. Thus, we will be providing a motorcycle that the volunteers can use as the public transportation in the island is quite limited. The volunteers may expect to be hosted in a Single/Shared bedroom. We cannot guarantee that electricity, mobile signal or internet connection will be available at all times, but we will, however, try our best to provide, if possible.

The volunteers will be staying in a hotel in Tagbilaran City upon their arrival in Bohol for their on-arrival orientation. During the orientation, they will be required to do a courtesy call to the governor of Bohol, and they will be visiting all the volunteer placement sites and will meet their mentors.

The volunteers will receive a monthly allowance that they will use to buy food, pay for local transportation (if volunteer can’t/won’t drive a motorcycle and prefers to take the local transportation instead), buy mobile phone prepaid cards for communication. Otherwise, a motorcycle will be provided to volunteer.

Visa & travel arrangements

Due to the current situation all of volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated with one of European medicine agency recognized vaccine. Information on Covid-19 restrictions can be found here. More information on green countries for Philippines (no Covid-19 restrictions) can be found here. Otherwise, 3-day long quarantine is required.

Visa procedure takes up to 1 month. The visa has to be arranged prior to the departure. More information can be found here.

Hosting organisation

Bridging The Gaps Organization – BTG, Inc. (BTG Philippines) is a non-governmental, non-profit, youth-serving organization based in Quezon City, Philippines that highlights the chief role the youth plays in mobilizing disadvantaged communities, while enabling itself in the process to grow as a more responsible and engaging component of local and international societies by using its skills, knowledge, and advocacies in the organization’s four thematic pillars namely (1) Education, (2) Environmental sustainability, (3) Microfinance and Entrepreneurship, and (4) Culture and Heritage.
