Activity description

Our organization is looking for 1 volunteer interested in doing a project ESC during 7 months in Berga Our main aim is working in social inclusion with people affected by mental issues, functional diversity or risk of social exclusion. In order to help them we organize different activities: arts and crafts, sewing, serigraphy, culture, graphic design… Apart of these we do awareness campaigns about the importance of re-using materials and against mental health stigma. People who attend our institution are autonomous and, at this moment, they are recovering. They come to our centre to recover routines, to acquire habits, to improve, to learn how to work in teams and overall to be empowered. They don’t need caregivers, they need to be accompanied and exchange experiences.
