Last Week FREIRAD had a visit from Verein Multikulturell and 4 participants of the Verein Multikulturells Basic Education got an impression on how to become a volunteer for community radio.
"Verein Multikulturell‘s main objectives are to promote professional, social and cultural inclusion of migrants and to enhance intercultural dialogue and education." Let us introduce to you one of our Austrian partner organizations: Verein Multikulturell.
Cidis is implementing two training courses, one in Perugia and one in Terni, organised in weekly meetings/get together, opportunities to learn more about voluntary work done at a local level.
Our colleagues from Leibniz Universität Hannover presenting some of the outcomes of the VAI - Volunteering among Immigrants - project.
The objective here is to encourage good practice in the volunteering sector and to support immigrants in volunteering with longer-term commitment and development potential.
"Through volunteering I have achieved more than given away. I have learnt so much… language, friends, places, new experiences, more that i could ever wished for!"
About 40 representatives and members of the civil society in Thessaloniki participated in the networking workshop «Refugees, Migrants and Volunteering: on the road to inclusion», which took place on Wednesday 10 July at LAB29A of SolidarityNow, in the context of the AMIF project Volunteering Among Immigrants – VAI coordinated by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
“I received help from people in the Centre after I arrived in Athens”, Hameed is saying. “right now, they are helping me to sort out my asylum papers. So, I would also like to help other people. Because I am a refugee myself, I understand how difficult it can be, for an elderly person especially, to find their way around Athens or take the bus to a place they have never been before."
The Δήμος Πειραιά - Municipality of Piraeus was invited to talk about the VAI-Project at the local radio station Κανάλι Ένα 90,4 FM. Our collegue Spiros Kasidiaris had the chance to talk about the project in general, underline the need for T.C.N's integration in Piraeus, analyze our Action Plan and talk about future projects such as a film festival in Piraeus and an international Congress.
Thank you for the invite Κανάλι Ένα 90,4 FM!
“It was exciting but also scaring for me at the beginning. However, it is a great experience to be a part of local society and having new contacts from Innsbruck and Tyrol region every day.”
