AIM & IMPACT OF THE PROJECT
We want to break stereotypes, that people with disabilities are less able to participate in the society. The project’s high quality activities will provide fun and informal environment to the both target groups (children with and without disability) to play, work together, learn from one another, have fun with each other, promoting equal opportunities for everyone and accepting everyone individually, no matter whether they are with or without disabilities.
This project will connect them together, practice and boost the target group’s self-confidence, communication and social skills, as well respect towards one another, the idea that they can be who they are (even if they differ from the others), improving self-esteem, motivation and a sense of belonging.
This Solidarity project will actively promote social inclusion. The project will provide a strong positive experience of volunteering and will motivate the young volunteers to use EU suggested methodology and standards of successful non-formal learning.
Apart from the gained valuable skills, the children will receive Certificates at the end of the project.
At the end of the project the volunteers will receive EU Youthpass Certificates, which they can attach to their CV, while applying for a job/internship, etc. in the Netherlands and abroad.
Our Solidarity projects win the EU prizes and enable young people and children to build a more inclusive society and respond to societal and humanitarian challenges. They offer opportunities to develop valuable competences abroad or in the individuals' home country.
The European Solidarity Corps also enables capacity-building for organisations involved in the programme, local and international organisations.
Bright Future's young and initiative volunteers will successfully implement an inclusive Solidarity project for children with and without disability.
