Tegalrejo Red-District area is prostitution area in Semarang Regency; there are more than 100 families who mostly work as sex workers or food sellers. We run this project since 2006, together with our mother organization PKBI. This work camp focus on improving quality life of marginalized kids so they will threaten fairly and less discriminated. Most of the children living in this area don’t have birth certificate, since their parent don’t have identity card either. On the other hand, they couldn’t afford higher level of school, and must faces high-risk-sexual activity scene (such as violence, sex bargaining, or sexual exploitation) as their playing ground. By this situation we worked with local stakeholder to provide a shelter called “Rumah Belajar” or “Study Center” where children can read books, make handicraft, fun studying, and cross cultural understanding with volunteer.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Hiiumaa according to the Nordic sagas emerged from the Baltic Sea as a small islet more than 10 000 years ago. The island of Hiiumaa was first mentioned in historical documents as a deserted island called Dageida in 1228. The first inhabitants settled down at the end of the 13th century. Nowadays Hiiumaa is the second biggest island of Estonia with the area of 965 sq. km and the population around 10 000. It has many historical and nature sights, and there are kind people known for their hospitality and good sense of humor. The island is referred as a remote area of Europe, so EstYES feels particularly proud developing international voluntary projects for dozen of years there. Also, for years EstYES has been cooperating with farms all over Estonia for solidarity, respect and practical support to local people who work in agricultural sector keeping traditional life style and developing new eco-farming despite of all difficulties. Alliksaare Farm is one of such projects. This is an organic farm promoting sustainable lifestyle, and this camp is proposed for volunteers who appreciate and share its values, want to learn more about it and to help hard working people. In addition to agricultural activities, Alliksaare Farm has another important task taking care of coastal meadows which are international birds migration area under protection of NATURA Programme.

Arbeit

There are two types of work that volunteers are expected to support the center: Manually outdoor work with gardens and renovation and socially indoor work with children. Physical work varies from time to time but the need for renovation and construction is constant because the center was built more than 30 years ago. VPV has sent groups of volunteers to the center since May 2008 and did support the center in some construction work and small projects. There are also a lot of unnamed work that the staff want to do but do not have enough time and work force to carry out. Volunteers will also join the activities that the children and people there are doing everyday such as preparing meals, cleaning the center and others. At the same time, volunteers can work in the classrooms for special education such as retardation class, basic education for deaf and mute children or the vocational classes where children learn to sew, do embroideries, wool knitting… if the volunteers have necessary skills. Working with kids here requires a lot of creativity and different groups prefer different approaching methods. It is advisable if the volunteers can bring some educational materials. Our former volunteers often use pictures, drawing, clay, games, CD and music to teach some dance moves. Note: The work may change everyday and be informed at short notice, which is based on the requests of the center. Therefore, volunteers are expected to be flexible with sudden changes. Ex: The center said the group would paint the walls the day after. When the group came on the next day, the staff said there were no tasks that day as the center welcomed a visit from a delegation and the director thought the group should join the meeting instead. Most importantly, through the work and interaction with the children at this center, volunteers will have the opportunity to learn about the abilities that the children here are having, despite their physical disabilities.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

• Volunteers will stay in the guestrooms of the center, which are next to each other. • The center will provide mattresses, pillows and blankets. Volunteers should bring their own mosquito nets. • Bathrooms and toilets are available in each room. There’s no hot water or shower. • Volunteers will have lunch and dinner in the center. VPV will prepare breakfasts for the group which include a few options such as breads, sticky rice or dumplings. If you are a vegetarian, or have special diets, please let us know in advance. • No washing machine for the group, so prepare yourselves to do hand-washing. • No wifi available

Lage und Freizeit

Thuy An Rehabilitation Centre for people with disabilities finds itself 13kms away from small town of Son Tay and 70kms from down town of Hanoi. Founded in 1976, The centre was originally opened for disabled children whose parents are the veterans infected with the Agent Orange, the toxic chemical used in American war. Over time, however, the centre has started to render its services to all disabled children. Thuy An Centre is a ‘campus’ housing up to 150 children and 50 staff. The children aged 0 to 18 suffering from mental or physical disabilities are helped in any of three ways, depending on their disability. 1. Rehabilitation: This consists of physical therapy, orthopaedic surgery (Galvanic electrolysis, ultrasound, laser acupuncture...), and backbone relaxation treatment and in providing for and assisting the children with the use of aid equipment. 2. Education / Vocational training: This consists of special education, integration education, vocational training such as sewing, wool knitting, embroidering and computer teaching. 3. Upbringing / Looking after: The children are well looked after by staff who are disciplined and efficient. The job requires high level of responsibility and self discipline. The Centre receives financial support from the government as well as NGO’s and occasional businessmen. Though receiving assistance from various sources, there are still a constant need of help in infrastructure and finance. The ultimate goal of the centre is to help the children re-integrate into society. While special education helps to lessen the burden of children’s families by teaching the disabled to help themselves with personal activities, the vocational training programs enable handicapped children to earn their living and able to live independently in the future. There were thousands of children benefited from the education here and many of them have a stable job. The centre itself has five staff who were nursed and educated in this school and now they are helping the other unlucky children.

Historically, and even now, human beings have been searching for the true definition of a peaceful, harmonious, and “happy life”. In pursuit of the answer to this question, a group of people gathered in 1984 in what is now Sanan Village, an idealistic community which follows the philosophy of an environment-friendly, non-possessive society. As of today, around 20 people reside within this communal village, and the residents are encouraged to pay more attention to the preservation and conservation of the environment while also freely sharing public resources. People in the village live together, work together and share together. The volunteer also need to follow their life style. Main income of the village is chicken farming. Those who are interested in a new and alternative way of living which is very different from a "normal and capitalized” life in Korea, may obtain some fresh ideas about their life through this program.

Local Children Center in Korea is the facility for the children welfare services. The center provides children a shelter after the regular school and educational/cultural opportunities as well. Most of children in rural area have fewer opportunities to meet foreigners and get a high quality English education compared to the urban area. Also although international marriage is quite common phenomenon in rural area, local residents are lack of understanding of multi-culture. So the children are facing discrimination in the school, cultural and linguistic difficulties. International volunteers can give them chances to interact with foreigners and to understand multi-culture. And English can be a tool to understand Korean local children and interact with them. Especially in Sunshine Local Children center, there are many children who need affection caused by the absence of parent and family matters.
