In September we had the chance to participate in a refugee-related project in Ankara, Turkey. The organizer was a NGO named Toy Library Association which deals with donating toys to refugee children.
The project was funded by European Union and was available to all young Estonian residents starting from 18-years of age. You are welcome!
The course aimed to create 5 different workshops and we were prepared for that during it. Some of the workshops included molding-clay and wooden tool workshops. Crafts that were accessible to all, also safe due to special techniques and tools.
One of the rare privileges we had was to actually meet the children in need-refugees situated in Ankara. A truly great experience.
The tools we learned will be used to create similar workshops in the future.

28.04-05.05 toimus Kivi turismitalus, Viljandimaal noortevahetus, mille teemaks oli soorollide vägivald. Noortevahetuses osalesid noored vanuses 15-17a ja olid nad Gruusiast, Ukrainast, Itaaliast, Hispaaniast ja Eestist. 29.04 Olime öösel Kivi turismitallu kohale jõudnud ja umbes kahe ajal magama saanud, ärkasime hommikul poole kümne ajal. Me ei tundnud veel üksteist väga, seega oli esimene päev mõeldud tutvusmiseks. Esimesed tutvumismängud olid sellised, kus pidime oma nime ütlema ja veidi koostööd tegema. Peale lõunat ehitasime etteantud vahenditega silda, kui kuulsime, et selleks on 40min, siis ei saanud keegi aru, miks nii kaua aega on vaja, aga lõpus jäi kõigil aega puudu. Õhtuks olime enam vähem kõik juba tuttavad, ning peale õhtusööki tegime juba ise asju koos. Õhtu lõpuks olime mingi seltskonnaga kellegi toas ja jagasime muljeid esimesest päevast ja oma riigi kultuurist ja traditsioinidest. See oli hämmastav, kui ruttu sõpradeks saime! Minu meelest, oli see üks lõbus
During 19th to 25th of January 2018 we took part on a training course in Spain, San Esteban de Gormaz. "You CREATE - Coaching, Empowering and Activating!" Involved 8 partnering countries (Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Romania and Spain). During the course we went trough various self-assessments to learn to know our strenghts, interests and traits which can be used to improve the visibility on the road to employement. The course was organized by a inspiring NGO named Asociación Asekas . Their welcoming and introduction to Spanish culture was really one of a kind. Also the venue was on a territory of a public school, providing us with the invaluable experience to see the school setting of a scholar, activites and traditions of local youth in the form of their presence and various picture-mosaiques and newspaper-cut outs on the walls. Recognizing the state of (un)employement situation in current Europe, “YOU CREATE” comes to meet the need of s
Every year millions of people die from wrong interventions. The reason is that most people do not have enough knowledge about what they should do in an emergency situation. Sometimes a piece of first aid knowledge can save a person's life. According to the report published by Turkish Health Ministry in 2011, the first 5 minutes is 5 times more important than the rest minutes for the wounded victim to survive him or her. With this project, we aimed to come together with young people from different parts of Europe to share the information about first aid techniques for emergencies and also learn different intervention techniques. The project was implemented in Aksaray city in Turkey. The activities of the project were between 17-25 July 2016. The activity was a training course and it lasted 7 days. 29 youth workers came from 6 countries (Turkey, Estonia, Bulgaria, Malta, Lithuania and Romania). The coordinator of the project is Behçet Hastaları ve Sağlıklı Yaşam Derneği. 29 Part
