Work

Volunteers will decide, according to what they prefer to do, what they will do. They can either take part to the pedagogical project or work in the farm. Those who will work on the pedagogical project will supervise groups. Those who prefer manual work will work in the farm (feed animals, clean the barn’) Volunteers must be aware that working in a farm can be very physical. It can be very tiring. Working with animals is a concrete job (feeding animals, cleaning the barn’) and not a romantic one (a cow is not a nice stuffed animal). Volunteers will always be supervised, they will not be alone. They will help adults who work on the site. Workers will teach them how to do the different tasks. The aim is that they slowly become more and more independent. Work schedule will depend on the moments. The farm works 24h a day. At some moments, there will be work for more than 8 hours. In summer, there are sessions for children. During those sessions, children will have activities from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Walking in the forest, taking care of the animals, making bread’). After 4 p.m., it will be necessary to organize games, dinner, showers, night walks and breakfast. Children are between 3 and 15 years old (for those who do not stay there at night) and between 6 and 15 years old (for those who stay at night).

Accomodation and food

volunteers must sleep in a tent during the summer. They must bring their tent, their mattress’. It is possible to sleep in a residential center, but it costs about 350 euros . Food is included

Location and leisure

It is important to bring boots or walking shoes, a rain jacket and sweaters (it can be really cold and/or rain much). - Computers, cameras’ can be kept in a secured room in the main building. - Volunteers will have access to the internet. - It is an isolated village.

Work

For 9 years now, we have been welcoming international volunteers. We believe in the importance of diverse social contacts for our residents, which is why we would like to welcome a volunteer for 3 to 12 months. They would spend the day with disabled people in a warm, friendly, and supportive environment, bringing life and community support to our centre. This would make for a great opportunity to welcome a dynamic volunteer in order to promote our values and our solidarity commitment to disabled people. Working and living with disabled people makes for an incredibly strong and rich experience. Taking care of them humbles us and keeps us grounded. It also helps us see them as unique individuals who embrace their differences. For volunteers, it is also a good introduction to social work and civic engagement. Our residents suffer from mild, moderate, and severe learning difficulties without exhibiting violent behaviours. Volunteers can choose to work during the following time windows: - From Monday to Friday, from 4pm to 10pm. - On Saturdays, from 10am to 10pm. - On Sundays, from 10am to 10pm. - From Monday to Friday, from 6am to 9.30am.

Accomodation and food

Volunteers will sleep in an individual room. Toilets, showers and kitchen shared with residents. Fridge made available to volunteers. Meals are included and eaten in the centre. The organisation helps volunteers defray their costs . Meals are included and eaten in the centre. Washing machines available. Wi-Fi access.

Location and leisure

The center is located at 3km of the city center of Braine-l’Alleud.  Braine-l’Alleud counts many stores and a train station. Brussels is 15 minutes away from Braine-l’Alleud by train.  A bus stop and a train station are located not far from the residential center. Bicycles are provided for the volunteers to go to the train station.  As far as leisure is concerned, Braine-l’Alleud is home to a cinema complex, many sports halls, and a cultural center.  Braine-l’Alleud is not far away from the historic site of Waterloo.

Project hosted by

The organisation Accueil & Vie offers two community houses, twenty supervised apartments and a day care for adults with learning difficulties (mild, moderate or severe learning difficulties). Those living facilities and the day care centre aim at a family and community atmosphere, where the personality of each individual is acknowledged and accepted. With this in mind, the organisation encourages listening and individual care. The core values of our organisation are the right to dignity, to an honest dialogue, to solidarity, to hospitality, to non-violence and the respect of differences. The most important part of this community is the person with learning difficulties and the organisation acknowledges their unique value, their dignity, generosity and autonomy and interpersonal abilities. Accueil & Vie offers ways for everyone to live happily and blossom by answering to their physiological and safety needs (accommodation, health, nutrition). As for the needs for spirituality, open-mindedness, acknowledgement and a sense of belonging, each person will channel them within their own capabilities and thanks to the resources available. The living facilities and activities contribute to a fulfilling experience where everyone feels at home. Accueil & Vie wishes to create an atmosphere of trust and active communication between residents, families, volunteers and all the partners. The organisation wants the residents to be actively involved in the society.
