GIVE AND TAKE

Palermo Green project

One of our projects in which I participate is Palermo Green, a project created to help solve the problem of dirt in the streets and the neglect of some green areas, developing the sense and civic commitment of citizens for their city.

I met the various volunteers active in the project, immediately resulting in friendship and mutual cooperation, and few days of the week I meet Martina and the other guys and we work hard! The activities consist in cleaning the degraded green areas, also in planting flowers and plants and taking care of the different flower beds we love to take care of!

At this time the areas in which we are working are many and varied including: the area around the Central Station, the Zisa Castle, the various flowerbeds of Corso Tukory and along the beaches and green areas of Via Messina Marina.

 I will update you about the activities of the vegetable garden, a part of  Palermo Green project.

GIVE AND TAKE

Today, February 13th, the carnival day decays.
Together with the professors, teachers and children from the elementary school of Brancaccio, with the guys from the association "Uniamoci Onlus" the carnival ended with a carnival parade with floats, colored masks, music and dances. Despite the bad weather and the rain we did not give up and with a smile we made this day shine with a lot of solidarity and joy. Finally we celebrated with traditional games and dances inside the headquarters of our association :)



GIVE AND TAKE

Today I would like to present the daily activities of members in organization.

For my mind one of the most important thing that they have possibility to learn another languages as English, German and Ukrainian. New knowledge each of participant  implement into the computer work, updating their social networks, taking a reading course, a cinema and golf critics. For more, they study a theater course with a final show at the end, during the dance course guys have opportunity to learn some addatable movements, instead the artistic journey brings a lot of new meetings and discussions. For example, they work with web radio "Senza barriere"
that broadcast every Saturday, during which they read and comment some newspaper articles.
Sometimes some guests join to them to talk about the european projects which assosiation take part in. There is a newspaper for descrbing more widely done work.

I will write more info about other projects outside of organization very soon.

Give and take

So at the moment I am a EVS volunteer in Palermo in the Uniamoci Olnus organization, which is interested in the social inclusion of disabled people, volunteering, active citizenship, European mobility, also EVS projects and besides they work with many different projects such as Palermo Green, City Garden, etc. I will describe those in which I am taking part and had the opportunity to join ....

GIVE AND TAKE

For a long time, I have been interested in becoming involved in the European Voluntary Service programme, and when I saw project "Give and Take", I knew this was the perfect opportunity. The activities of Associazione Uniamoci Onlus are an ideal match for my experience, skills, and interests.
In 2016 I participated in the Erasmus+ project “Be Active, Be Europe” (a bilateral exchange between Italy and Ukraine in Polizza Generosa, Sicily, Italy) where we helped to create a new community for children without parents.
It was at this time that I firmly decided that I wanted to spend my EVS on this beautiful island.

Maryna, con noi da quasi due settimane ormai!

Un pò di ansia per il visto che non voleva arrivare e allora non volevamo neanche creare false speranze tra i membri dell'Associazione, così abbiamo parlato poco di lei e solo una settimana prima del suo arrivo. Con entusiasmo abbiamo trascorso due mattinate a preparare un cartellone di benvenuto e l'abbiamo aspettata, preparando ciascuno la sua presentazione in inglese: qualcuno ancora chiedeva "ma quanto resta?""10 mesi""Miiiii".  Eravamo così quel primo giorno:

Adesso sono passate quasi due settimane in cui Maryna si è perfettamente integrata col nostro gruppo e da questa settimana inizierà anche a gestire delle attività: in questo momento sta tenendo una lezione di Ucraino per i nostri utenti e volontari e venerdì sperimenteremo una tecnica pittorica ucraina, perchè Maryna è un'artista! Ma ci ha molto aiutato anche nel lavoro d'ufficio, compilando e sistemando tabelle, aggiornando il blog del nostro progetto Art of Inclusion, ha aprte…
