Hostitelská organizace: H20
This project will last 12 months and we intend to receive 6 volunteers from different countries. During this time we will also have participants from Turkey in the short term. Participants must be over 18 years old and the official language of the project will be English and Portuguese. Participants will learn Portuguese according to their motivation.
The countries involved are: Belarus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Poland, Spain, Turkey.
The aim of this project is to give them the opportunity to get to know our country, our culture and our work.
Volunteers will live in our local community helping children and trying to integrate them with the elderly population. Volunteers need to be prepared to team up with the „H2O“ volunteers in all the work our organization does, both on a practical and logistical level. In Arrouquelas the population is mostly
elderly, so we want volunteers to create a greater interaction between the young people and these people.
The volunteers will be divided into 4 work camps and the „H2O“. At „H2O“ they will take care of children after school hours, developing stimulating and creative activities. They will also create activities, trainings and
workshops for young people in general and will learn and assist in the association’s administrative work.
They will develop an educational project of social inclusion in a Social Institution in the city of Rio Maior – „O Ninho“ Special education center for people with mental problems. The users carry out educational, manual, artistic, agricultural, sports, handicrafts and other types of games. We intend that the volunteers integrate these activities and that they can develop other projects of their own that promote a greater interaction between our association and „O Ninho“.
Another field of work is the „Naturidade“ – Continued Care Unit in Arrouquelas, which supports the users in their rehabilitation, where the purpose of volunteering is to perform games, parties, conversations and activities that improve their self-esteem.
There are also two other institutions where volunteers will do activities, the Fernando Casimiro Pereira da Silva school and Poeta Ruy Belo, giving support to leisure activities and the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, where volunteers will provide support in the distribution of food and essential goods to Families in the Rio Maior region. To both school children from Arr go…
In general this project has as main objective the communication and the Education, because they will create various forms of communication between the association and our young people and will develop training. In „H2O“ all the members of the board are volunteers, so we have a characteristic way of working, but above all there are no limits to motivation and creativity.
We intend to use non-formal education methods: energizers, group dynamics, discussions and questionnaires to apply to the local community. Volunteers should be able to promote the ESC program and represent the
National Agency and „H2O“ in the various events we participate in, such as exhibitions, newspaper interviews, TV and radio.
Project “Rio Maior Refood”
This is a social project developed in partnership with the „H2O“ and the Conference of St. Anthony of Rio Maior – Sociedade São Vicente de Paulo, and its senior volunteers. The project focuses on working together on an intercultural and intergenerational linkage of the volunteers involved, where the tasks are focused on the daily food collection and distribution of the same to the poor population of the county of Rio Maior. The families are previously referred by the social services of CM Rio Maior. This activity is performed daily by two ESC volunteers from „H2O“ and 3 senior volunteers from the Conference of Santo António de Rio Maior – Sociedade São Vicente de Paulo.
In addition to this daily activity, which consists of collecting from a supermarket (Pingo Doce) all fresh products donated and then delivered directly to the families enrolled in the Conference, they also carried out these direct collection tasks at the Food Bank of Santarém, where they are collected.
Once a month grocery products that will be equally distributed later by the registered families.
The process of selecting the families supported by the conference is to provide our association’s services with all the personally identifiable documentation, as well as the income and expenditure documents which will be analyzed later and is the basis for granting support.
Currently, the Conference of St. Anthony of Rio Maior provides food assistance for the whole month to an average of 144 families with 80 children under 12. Fresh produce assists an average of 21 families (January 2017 information).
We consider a valuable contribution to our Association, the valuable contribution of young people who carry out their social functions, expressing great interest and care in pursuing them, thus understanding the social reality of the municipality of Rio Maior.
