Why Did You Choose EVS? 
I choose EVS to live new experiences but also because I never went alone and never more than one week, so this organisation allow me to be a minimum framed for my first time alone abroad. More than it, working there as a volunteer is not the same thing than for tourism. We are completely immersed in an unknown culture, closer
to the inhabitants.

What Are Your Expectations?
I’m expecting to learn new animations skills, and share mine with others volunteers if they are interested. Learn more about Poland and most of it, about people living there. I expecting to make me some new friends too.

What do you hope to share with other people during your stay in
Poland ?
I can share my knowledges in social surveys methods and in statistics
which are essential to break stereotypes. I can take part to animations
for youngs too.

What would be your best attributes?
I can learn and adapt myself very quickly. I’m also a very sociable
person who is open-minded.

27th of January: International Holocaust Remembrance Day

International Holocaust Remembrance Day, is an international memorial day on 27 January commemorating the tragedy of the Holocaust that occurred during the Second World War. It commemorates the genocide that resulted in the death of an estimated 6 million Jewish people, 200,000 Romani people, 250,000 mentally and physically disabled people, and 9,000 homosexual men by the Nazi regime and its collaborators.

Holocaust survivors and various leaders make their voices heard on the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. Many of them speak publicly about the Holocaust or their experiences around the event, its aftermath and why the world should never forget what happened in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s.

The UN organizes and supports events such as: concerts by musicians who survived the Holocaust or are survivors’ descendants; art exhibitions influenced by the Holocaust; presentations of special stamps; the introduction of special educational programs; and film screening and book signing focused on the Holocaust.

IMG_1657Summarise your EVS.

What is your name?

My name is Anastasia Mimikou.

How long did you stay?

I had been staying in Leszno for two months.

What are you taking away from this experience?

It was a real life-changing experience. I tried things that in my place I have no chance to do so. I met beautiful people and learnt about a different culture and way of living. I made new friends from different places. Now, that I am a lot of kilometres away, I am still able to feel the warmth that this place brings to my heart because ended up to be my second home!

What would you like to do next?

I would like to keep on searching new things to experience and promote myself. Maybe, I will search for a long-term programme to do!

What is your best memory from this EVS?

There are a lot of things that I will remember forever. But if I had to choose, that would be the flash mob about human rights in high school. The place was full of positive energy, the students were involved. We were wearing special accessories, making balloons and having fun with the students.

 

5th of December: International Volunteer Day

International Volunteer Day (IVD) (originally as International Volunteer Day for Economic and Social Development) is an international observance designated by the United Nations since 1985.

It offers an opportunity for volunteer organizations and individual volunteers to make their contributions visible – at local, national and international levels and is a chance for individual volunteers, communities and organizations to promote their contributions to development at the local, national and international levels.

Being a volunteer is a big opportunity to develop your skills by working for an NGO. You could learn new things, meet many and different people from another countries and make new friends.

Fundacjia CAT has a tradition of hosting volunteers for EVS programs from many countries of Europe. Also, it has a variety of people of the local community who are active volunteers and work with us, promoting the aims and the goals of our organization.

Ladies and gentlemen. ANNOUNCEMENT!!!!!

Finally, after our photography workshop directed by our volunteers, we are very proud to announce the outcome of this laboratory: the final photography exhibition!!

~ 04.12.2017 at 18:00, Boczna 6, Leszno 64-100 ~ 

The exposition will follow the theme of the Human Rights, topic still highly significant today. We believe in disseminating the message of the Human Rights and, of course, their violations. We also believe that photography is, today more than yesterday, an extremely powerful media for expressing messages and let them circulate as much as possible That’s why we have chosen to spread this idea, this philosophy, this concept so precious through this media.

With the intention of propagating to the maximum the Human Rights, the exhibition will be completely free and funded by CAT Foundation.Print

We hope that you will appreciate our efforts.

See you there!! 😀
