Speak up for social inclusion!

Timis County Youth Foundation (FITT)

Timisoara, Romania

The application deadline has passed.

Activity description

The main theme we will be addressing through this project is social inclusion and collaboration with young people with low chances and disadvantaged groups. We believe that young people from disadvantaged groups must see that they are not alone, and the situation may be better. This can be achieved by accepting diversity, multiculturalism and awareness of social rights and social security. Children and young people with fewer opportunities need to be motivated and encouraged to take action and take their lives in their own hands, regardless of the fact that they are excluded and discriminated against for various social, cultural or economic reasons. The main objective of the project is to create an inclusive society to work with disadvantaged groups, to sensitize society to the social and economic problems faced by young people by promoting diversity, equality and multiculturalism.

Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The accommodation for the entire time of the mobility will be at the Youth House in Timisoara, at the hotel. One flat, 2 rooms - ready for 2 volunteers. https://www.booking.com/hotel/ro/casa-tineretului.ro.html This way, they will be in the Youth Center, where most of the activities will take place and where also, they will work together with the Foundation.
