The story of 8 months in Romania

The story of 8 months in Romania

On 31.10.2011 ended the 8 month voluntary service which the two volunteers, Marcella Guido from Italy and Zeynep Atvur from Turkey have developed at Caritas Eparhial Oradea Association, which took part in “Volunteer for a better world” project, which was funded by the European Commission through Youth in action project, European Volunteer Service, with a budget of 11.920 euro.
The objective of the project was to involve the two international volunteers in a volunteering workout in Caritas Eparhial Oradea Association, during 8 months, to participate in social activities that will develop them abilities and life competence which over time will help developing the communities they live in. Thereby the two volunteers participated at the associations activities: serving hot meal, clothing distribution, home visits at beneficiaries, sanitation, clown training, weekly visits at the hospitalized children, fundraising, promotion and administrative activities.
The two volunteers took Romanian lessons, and during their free time they visited Oradea, but also other Romanian touristic objectives. They managed to know the culture, habits and traditions, they interact with other Romanian and foreign volunteers, managing to discover Romanian diversity. The costs for transportation, accommodation, food, communication were provided by the project, and also the volunteer received pocket money.
The volunteers have had a one in a lifetime experience. They have developed various skills such as communication in a foreign language, digital literacy, social and civic involvement and initiative desire. The girls developed themselves personally but also professionally through learning to learn process. Thereby, they managed to understand the meaning of cultural diversity and also to appreciate differences between people.
