Arbeit

We invite volunteers to give their support to the multiple tasks which will help the school to organize incredible summer camps. The purpose is mainly the exchange between enthusiastic and motivated youngsters in order to share all together our experiences and wishes. There will be two types of tasks: farm work and renovation/construction. During the workcamp, we wish the volunteers to share with us the everyday life of Clerheid School as well as the maintenance of the site, by performing the following tasks: • To take care of the animals (2 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 goats, sheep and chickens), • To prepare the fields, to fix the fences, and various farm works, • To maintain the forest (wood collecting, pruning and storage) and of the 12 hectares of fields (haymaking, cutting “bad weed”…), to construct a dry stone wall, gardening, • To prepare, maintain and renovate various installations, wooden construction… Volunteers will also have the opportunity to visit and work in the wooden village hosting every year hundreds of kids. This enchanting place is the fruit of the work and imagination of generations of kids and activity leaders, and today it extends considerably (more than 20 huts over 2 hectares, a bridge, an amphitheatre, a fence...). Tasks are fairly diversified so that there is something for every taste. The planning of activities will be developed progressively according to the progress of work, the weather, needs of the organisation and wishes of volunteers.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

"L’Enfance de l'Art", founded in 1997, is an association which aims at helping parents in their education role. The organisation aims to gather people willing to bring to their children a creative learning environment where they can find the joy in learning and experience the richness of childhood rather than early specialisation or academic hot-housing. Parents and professionals work together in the structures created by the organisation: leisure workshops, nurseries, schools, kindergarten. To do so, the association follows the principles of Steiner-Waldorf pedagogy. The organisation welcomes around 140 children aged from 0 to 12. The nursery, kindergarten and primary classes are recognized by the FWB (Wallonia Brussels federal institution) and are located in an old boarding school, « Dames de la Providence ». The premises are going to be bought but are actually rented for a very low price in order to avoid vandalism. They are old and have been abandoned since 2004 but the parents from the association have decided to handle their renovation. And here comes the workcamp !

The zone is highly urbanised 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). Refugees Centre is located outside the town centre, but in a walking distance from the famous local lake Genval, cinema, shops, supermarkets, train station. Website (in French): http://www.rixensart.be

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Rixensart Refugees Centre accommodates people or families who have asked for asylum in Belgium. Refugees come from Syria, Irak, Iran, Congo etc. Many of them fled from war or from countries that were under a dictatorship or devastated by an ecological disaster. Thus they came to Belgium with dreams of stability, richness and comfort life. It is not, however, that easy to be allowed to settle in Europe, especially for somebody from the South or the East. Before these people may start their new live, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the document that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the immigrants are accommodated in this centre in the Brussels vicinity. People living there await the solution concerning their administrative status. They never know what tomorrow may bring to them. Therefore, residents often found 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. Website (available in English): http://www.fedasil.be

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 ten years ago, the mayor and deputies wanted to develop international contacts for the local youngsters. GRIMM association was just beginning to work on the protection of the local life framework and promoting models of sustainable development. Their members had a full load of ideas but were short of hands to realize them. Thus, they came to the idea of involving volunteers from all over the world. Since then, the municipality makes its buildings available every summer and welcomes foreign youngsters. GRIMM members organize the work. With the help from the volunteers, they are eventually able to realize the projects they dreamt about. Their actions are based on the following philosophy: Nature belongs to everyone. And if each of us may enjoy it, it has to be protected. Watch this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZ44WtVSfZ4 www.legrimm.be

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

Since its creation in 1994, “La Compagnie des Nouveaux Disparus” strives to give access to culture and - particularly theatre - to a socially disadvantaged public, less inclined to cultural activities. Democratisation of culture and promotion of diversity are the guiding principles of the company’s activities. These are divided in three types of projects: theatre plays creation, “Theâtres Nomades” festival and Mimouna Festival. Every summer, the Brussels Royal Park has hosted more than 60 theatre shows over 4 days for the Brussels theatre festival. The fountain and surrounding area are metamorphosed into a colourful nomad village made of marquees, caravans, Berber tents, and open-air stages. The programme is diversified through various shows for children, a circus, street theatre, classical theatre, puppet shows, as well as creative workshops on the stage of the Royal theatre of Brussels.
