MANZANARES, Ciudad Real: centre de rehabilitació social BASIDA
Edició 1: del 16 al 30 de juliol
Edició 2: del 17 al 30 d’agost (Navahondilla)
Descripció: BASIDA és una ONG que proporciona suport mèdic i psicosocial a positius del VIH, persones addictes a drogues i altres persones amb necessitats especials. Des del 1987, ha obert tres centres, tots ells gestionats per un personal voluntari multi-professional. La recuperació física i psicològica i la rehabilitació social dels residents de Basida s’està aconseguint gràcies al treball en equip. L’equip de Basida intenta ajudar els residents que viuen al centre a recuperar l’esperança i l’autoestima.
Tipus de feina: participar en la vida quotidiana del centre, principalment donant un cop de mà amb el manteniment del lloc (cuinar, fer la bugada, netejar, ajudar amb fusteria o jardineria de forma rotativa, etc.). La cura personal dels residents que ho puguin necessitar (com ajudar-los a vestir-se) també és una tasca possible, però només si realment se sent preparat per fer-ho. Una part important de la vostra estada serà la socialització amb la comunitat del centre.
Descripció: L’ONG PRADA (Proyectos de Ayuda) es va crear el 1996 per recuperar una casa en un poblet de Lleó amb finalitats socials. Des de llavors, vam formar un grup reduït de persones amants de la natura i de les zones rurals per recuperar edificis antics i crear espais útils per a organitzacions sense ànim de lucre. El nou projecte és la restauració d’una casa a Purujosa, Saragossa.
Tipus de feina: La feina és netejar les deixalles, eliminar tots els pisos, terrats i parets interiors de l’edifici (un treball manual dur), treure restes, pedres, bigues de fusta… Hem de netejar una parcel·la i retirar les deixalles per preparar la construcció de la nova casa. De la casa només en queden les parets exteriors, que són antigues i originals.

Description: The project “Alma” is situated in Alto Malcantone, a Southern Swiss Alps Municipality with 5 small villages in which 1400 people live all year long. The farm works mainly with Scottish highland cows. This project shows how, by taking care of the forest following the traditional methods, biodiversity can be supported. By cleaning the undergrowth from more invasive plants, it is possible to allow other types of plants to grow. Furthermore, the forest itself offers refuge to bats that migrate from the North of Germany to reproduce in these spaces and different species of birds. The forest has for years been a source of livelihood for the local population that has always benefited from the chestnuts produced by these majestic trees.
Type of Work: Collect wood and stones, clean the chestnut forest and the pasturages, cutting grass using machines on sometimes steep slopes and cutting the branches and bushes with garden scissors, ameliorate paths and fix broken fences and preparing and putting the fences for the cattle in the mountains. Specific work tasks depend on the weather and other circumstances. In the beginning of each day, you’ll receive more details about what needs to be done exactly. The workcamp will overlap on August 1st with the Swiss National Day: the Project Partner traditionally organizes a brunch where they present their products; work in the forest and in the mountains won’t therefore happen on that day but you will get to help prepare the brunch and serve the local costumers in a cozy family environment.

Description: Meihof is a Red Cross centre for asylum seekers. After arrival in Belgium, refugees are sent to a centre where they receive food and shelter. Meihof is one of these centres. Meihof is located in Lint, a small village in the province of Antwerp. Around 160 refugees stay there, of which about 25 children and 18 unaccompanied minors. Since a lot of people from different backgrounds live together there and the asylum procedure is not always successful, life in the centre is far from easy. Therefor we are searching for motivated volunteers to organize activities in the asylum centre. We want to give children the opportunity to participate in fun activities and to be just kids. During the summer there’s a lack of activities for both the children, the youngsters and the adults.
Type of Work: The volunteers will mainly organize activities for a mixed group of children and teenagers. The group will also take part in the daily life of the centre. The residents will be happy with the variation and the positive encounters. Besides the volunteers will create something with the children to carry out a positive image to the local community. What the group will be doing depends on the needs, the motivation and creativity of the group, so ideas are more than welcome! Keep in mind that people staying in Meihof are passing a very difficult time and that it’s in the volunteers’ hands to make their lives a bit brighter. Therefore we expect every volunteer to be very motivated. There’ll be 5 days of work a week and free weekends.
