Youth Exchange by the coast of Santa Maria la Bruna, Torre del Greco, Napoli
From February 27 until March 6 we support our organization Torre dei Giovani in the second phase of the project We are one that took place at Santa Maria la Bruna, Torre del Greco, Napoli.
In the project participated people from seven countries Italy, Greece, Germany, Lithuania, Romania, Turkey and The Netherlands sharing ideas and good practices of each country about refugees, integration and inclusion.
In this project had the opportunity to facilitate some of the morning activities (get to know each other activities, team building activities and energizers) and the workshops related to non-formal education, youthpass and Erasmus+ Youth opportunities.
As a part of the organizing team we had the chance to present ourselves and speak about our EVS project and the activities that we are running for our project.
The best part of our project apart from the knowledge we get about the good practices of each country about refugees was our visit at the Centro Apostolato Padre Dehon. In the center there are 23 refugees from Africa who have fled from countries at war. The responsible of the center made us an introduction about the place and the services that they offer to the residents. Then we could interact with the people there and share awareness.
I am glad to be part of such an interesting project like this. Apart from the great opportunity that gives you these kind of projects (meet new cultures and people from all over the Europe and not only, promote your own culture and values) this particular project gave us the opportunity to explore deeply this topic that is plaguing Europe the last years and interact with people that they are dealing for a better future.
