The main activities:

 1. Doing clinic animation for the children in 3 hospitals of Bucharest (3 days/ week, 2 hours each day).

What is clinic animation?

Through this activity we are trying to cheer up the children and make them forget about the unfriendly environment of a hospital. Our volunteers play with puppets, balloons, draw, read, make different creation workshops, make origami with the children, depending on what the condition of the child is and on the way the volunteer likes to express himself. 

Who are the beneficiaries of this activity?

The categories of children from the hospitals are with orthopedic problems or burned, from the oncology section or with lung problems. Some of them are also from poor families or from other social areas with problems. Their treatment often requires a long period in the hospital, an unfriendly environment for the child. Also, because of the condition of the children, working with them requires special care and responsibility form the volunteers, but also creativity.

 2. Meetings with young people from rural areas, talking about a youngster’s life in an European context. Here you will use different methods like forum theatre or debates to challenge the youngsters to think about their role in the community or in Europe in general and about volunteering.

 Who are the beneficiaries of this activity?

They are young people from high schools in rural, disadvantaged areas. Working with beneficiaries their age requires a special type of communication, different to the one of the beneficiaries from the hospitals.

 3. Presenting your culture to children (4-11 years old) through games, poems, songs and other playful activities.
