The non-profit association "Andage" aims to develop innovative projects and responses suitable to the needs of people with light mental disabilities and their families in the Province of Luxembourg and the Walloon Region. Their mission includes: • Individual support: as much as possible, Andage beneficiaries live by themselves. Nevertheless, they need a small support in daily life, different according to their specific needs: helping them to wake up in the morning, keep the house clean, take the train on time... • Collective activities: Andage seeks the development of numerous partnerships with the associative world in order to answer the occupational desires of their beneficiaries (help with the animals, youth clubs,etc.) • Community actions: Andage seeks to develop partnerships to raise awareness among the outside world about the inclusion of its beneficiaries. “Renforts Andage” is the local branch of the organization based in Marche-en-Famenne. Renforts‘ public is mostly composed of people with light to very light mental disabilities. Throughout the years, Renforts and CBB collaborated in many occasions through the yearly hosting of an ESC volunteer, hosting of youth exchanges and other activities, even providing food according to special diets during the Alliance General Conference held in Mozet in 2020. This will nevertheless be our first workcamp together, and both organizations are very excited about it!

Lage und Freizeit

Rixensart is located in the Brabant Walloon province, 25 km from Brussels and 10 km from Waterloo. The area is highly urbanized and has all the usual conveniences. Rixensart still keeps its countryside charm but one can feel the proximity of Brussels (40 minutes by train, 20 by car). Asylum seekers Centre is located outside the town centre, but at walking distance from the famous local lake Genval, cinema, shops, supermarkets, train station…

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Rixensart Asylum Seekers Centre accommodates people or families who have asked for asylum in Belgium. Refugees come from a large variety of countries, such as Syria, Iraq, Iran, Congo and so on. Many of them have fled from war, dictatorships or ecological disasters and they have come to Belgium with dreams of stability, richness and a comfortable life. It is not, however, that easy to be allowed to settle in Europe, especially for somebody coming from the South or the East. Before these people start their new life, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to legally remain in our country, the immigrants are accommodated in this centre in the vicinity of Brussels. People living there await the response concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring to them. Therefore, residents often find themselves overwhelmed by feelings of relief and anguish, hope and disappointment. The life of Rixensart Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual dramas and hopefulness of residents. By volunteering for this project, you are actively helping the centre welcome people coming from a wide variety of difficult situations and take care of them while they are waiting for a response to their asylum request (UN SDG 10 Reduced inequalities).

This project is composed of a volunteering team, supported by the European Solidarity Corps program of the European Union. Compared to the usual workcamp participation scheme, some main financial and administrative differences must be underlined: - The participation to the ESC volunteering teams is subjected to several principles and conditions, presented on the ESC webpage: https://europa.eu/youth/solidarity/mission_en - The volunteers do not have to pay any fees (not sending, nor participation fee) to attend the project - The volunteers will receive pocket money, calculated on a 4€/day basis, once they arrive to the project in Belgium - The volunteers will receive a financial support for their travel : 180€ for a travel between 100 and 499 km 275€ for a travel between 499 and 1999km 360€ for a travel between 2000 and 2999km 530€ for a travel between 3000 and 3999km - The volunteers need to register on the European Solidarity Corps Portal ; CBB will organize their the matching with the correct project in the online system. - The volunteers will have to complete a participation report, submitted online through the ESC portal. We warn the volunteers that the consumption of alcohol is strictly forbidden inside the centre. Volunteers must be sensitive and aware of the great diversity of the audience that the centre welcomes, in terms of age, nationalities, lifestyle, life stories, but also great cultural differences. Residents also live in the "the uncertainty of tomorrow" and can experience significant stress. The meetings that the volunteers are going to lead there can provoke certain feelings in residents and volunteers must have this in mind in order to deal with it and ask for help. The centre draws the attention of the volunteers to the importance of keeping a "professional distance" with residents (this can avoid conflicts), as well as of respecting the internal rules. The volunteers are required to have a basic knowledge of French. Beside that, it is necessary to have a basic knowledge about group animation (songs, music, dance, plays…) and to be able to assume responsibility within a group. Being able to listen to others is very important as well. This kind of workcamp can provide a very rich personal and human experience. It makes people aware of the complexity of certain social conditions related to the great inequalities in our planet. In order to demonstrate this, we ask the candidate volunteers to: - send a short motivation letter - answer our specific questionnaire (if you do not have it yet, please ask your sending organization for it). - send us a certificate of good conduct We will not confirm any placement requests before analyzing the submitted forms.

Arbeit

The people of this place would like to advance on different projects with the group of volunteers and with neighbors who would join the team during this period: - The carpentry workshop: for the moment it is a simple old hangar. The idea is to build wooden walls, straw and earth-straw and redo the roof. Natural materials are preferred. - Welcoming migrants: residents have just obtained a small prefabricated building to give their passing friends a more comfortable place. But it still needs to be properly insulated, finished fitting it out, fitting out the surroundings in anticipation of winter days. Here too, wood, straw and recovery are favored. - Collaboration with the Collectif S13: participation in the reception activities of migrants of the Collectif: preparation of meals ... Meeting of citizens inverted in the collective, sharing of experiences ... - The organization of a festive moment in the summer: this place is also animated by festive moments, meetings, musical exchanges with friends, families, people from the neighborhood ... In order to end the work in a good mood with international volunteers, the locals want to organize a party. The volunteers will help to arrange the spaces, to set up the bar, the sound system, to decorate the place ... And then to party :-) Participation in the life of the Grouped Habitat: vegetable patch, site maintenance. Evenings and weekends will be free.

Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is an intergenerational house project with the status of a private foundation, founded in 2014, by citizens questioned by the unequal world in which they live. They want their place of life to be a place where they can experience another way of living, made of simplicity, solidarity, but also an alternative way of life, allowing them to limit their individual consumption by pooling resources. “Le Hameau de la Ferme du Terril” is a grouped accommodation made up of 6 houses in which one 10 adults and 8 children live, from 20 months to 70 years old… This housing project is located on the site of a former coal mine then occupied by a farm. There are many buildings and a field of 5 hectares on which several collective projects have already been carried out: large vegetable garden, orchard, ballad path on the slag heap, hut for children, chicken coop, fenced land for sheep. There are also collective spaces, some of which are furnished, such as a kitchen, a shower, a food storage and a laundry room. Others are in the process of being realized: pottery workshop, carpentry workshop and a multitude of others! In these spaces, the residents would like to be able to host meetings, workshops, training courses promoting the search for a simple and creative life, sharing of knowledge and skills, This housing project is based on the philosophy of the Community Land Trust. Thus, if each family has its own house, the collective living spaces and the land belong to the foundation. The profit is disinterested. The objective is to maintain access to the housing project, built as a place for collective living, promoting living together. The intention of the residents is that to welcome and open up, to the neighborhood, but also more broadly. For 1 year, the inhabitants of this place have welcomed 5 or 6 migrants in transit, three days a week in order to give them access to basic needs such as food, rest, warmth and hygiene (washing, washing clothes). These people are from Eritrea, they are guided by the Collective S13 which works with migrants who "camp" on the Spy motorway service, on their long migratory journey.

Arbeit

The first two days will be dedicated to the preparation of activities and the schedule of the project (the people with learning disabilities will arrive on the 20th of July). From the 20th, volunteers, CBB staff and disabled people will spend together 24 hours a day. The CBB staff and the volunteers will be in charge of organizing leisure time (excursions, walks, games, parties, etc.) as well as the daily life and meals for the group. During the project, each volunteer will be responsible to improve the active participation of one or two person with learning disabilities. If at the beginning you are scared or wondering what are you doing there, don’t worry! After two days you will be amazed by the jarring atmosphere. While respecting the rhythm of each one, we are all there to enjoy ourselves!

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The aim of this camp is to offer to people with light mental disability the possibility to go on vacation with young international volunteers. During the workcamp, they share leisure time activities, make cultural visits and, above all, have fun. Thanks to this camp, people with learning disabilities that otherwise wouldn’t be able to go on vacation can leave their parents and their daily life to spend some time with other adults of their age. The volunteers and the CBB staff will accompany them in their leisure time and help them with their daily tasks. There will be 12 people with learning disabilities, 8 volunteers and one group leader. The disabled people are between 18 and 50 year old. By participating in this project, you will help offer more people with fewer opportunities the possibility of spending some quality time with international volunteers (UN SDG 4 Quality education, UN SDG 10 Reduced inequalities).

The Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre hosts people who have asked for asylum status in Belgium. Many of them have fled from war or persecution. Before these people may start their new lives, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the asylum seekers are accommodated in this centre. People living there await the answer concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring them. Therefore, residents often found themselves overwhelmed by feelings of relief and anguish, hope and disappointment. The life of Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual cases often filled with drama, but also hopefulness and laughter of residents.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Marche-en-Famenne workcamp is the outcome of the collaboration between municipal authorities and a local non-profit organization. More than fifteen years ago, the mayor and deputies wanted to improve international contact for the local youngsters. At that time GRIMM association had just begun the work on the protection of the local life and promoting models of sustainable development. Their members had many ideas but were short-handed to realize them. Then, they came to the idea of involving volunteers from all over the world. Ever since then, the municipality makes their facilities available every summer and welcomes youngsters from all around the world. GRIMM members organize the work, with the help of volunteers, so they are finally able to realize the projects they have dreamt about. Their actions are based on the following philosophy: Nature belongs to everyone. And if each of us is to enjoy it, it has to be protected. They have been organizing workcamps for 15 years!!! Your help will ensure the renovation and improvement of the rural landscape of Marche-en-Famenne (UN SDG 11 Sustainable cities and communities, UN SDG 15 Life on land).
