Arbeit

-This Summer is Ours- has been created to provide disabled children and young people with an inclusive and playful setting where they have the opportunity to interact and make friends with volunteers from all over the world, while dedicating themselves to creative tasks that are usually not available for disabled kids and young people in summertime. Volunteers hold a fun and diverse daily schedule for children, teenagers and young people with mental and physical disabilities, aged 10-29 years old, from Monday to Friday, from 8:00am to 2:00pm. Volunteers support the educational activities for children by helping the pedagogue to implement athletic activities, workshops, artistic events, theatrical plays, cross-cultural education and much more, having the opportunity to design and implement their own ideas with the support of the pedagogue. In order to prepare volunteers for the following weeks, an initial training is put in place during the first weekend of the workcamp. Here, the daily program of activities, developed beforehand by a pedagogue, is introduced to the group of volunteers. Some afternoons are used to prepare activities for the following days. Volunteers are invited to bring games, songs, ideas, and musical instruments

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Volunteers are accommodated at the school where the daily activities take place, on the outskirts of Elefsina. Well-equipped for children and young people with disabilities, the school is a spacious building with a big yard and free spaces.

With a population of 25.863 inhabitants, Elefsina is best known for having been the site of the Eleusinian Mysteries, one of the most famous religious events of the ancient Greek religion, as well as for being the birthplace of Aeschylus, one of the three great tragedians of antiquity. Today Elefsina is a major industrial center.Elefsina, Athens and the port of Piraeus are connected by bus, hence volunteers have plenty of choices for their free time, such as a visit to the Archeological Museum and the site of Eleusis, to Athens, the port of Piraeus, or a daytrip to the island of Salamina. Volunteers may attend the events organized during the period of their stay, such as concerts, festivals, performances, etc. They will discuss their free time activities with their camp leaders; together they will organize excursions and visits.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

-Summer in the City- is the annual workcamp that ELIX dedicates to children from families with economic and social difficulties, giving them the opportunity to live two weeks full of fun and learning. Indeed, the workcamp takes place in summer, when schools are closed and children s parents cannot afford paying for their kids to participate in such kind of project.ELIX started implementing -Summer in the City- in 2012, when the economic crisis was at its peak in Greece, and due to its positive impact on local community, we continue organizing it every year. The projects aim to keep children stimulated while their parents are at work. Through creative, non-formal educational activities, we help children to learn skills that will benefit their schooling.To give an example, last year 25 volunteers from 8 countries organized creative activities for 134 children. Thanks to the annual implementation of the project and its beneficial effect on children, Summer in the city became something for which families wait, because they see their children happy, hence every summer parents ask to enroll them. By word of mouth, the project is being known by more and more local families, extending its positive impact.SDGs in action: by volunteering in this project, you are actively promoting equal access to quality learning and safe inclusive learning environment for all (UN SDG4 Quality Education). You are also working at ending poverty, as education enables upward socioeconomic mobility, leading to breaking the cycle of poverty (UN SDG1 No Poverty). Finally, you are supporting reduced inequalities through the promotion of social inclusion of all regardless of economic status or other factors (UN SDG10 Reduced inequalities).

Arbeit

The work of the international volunteers will be divided in two parts: help in the kitchen and organise activities with the children. Kitchen: Working hours usually are 8.30am to 3.30pm (morning shift) or 5pm to 11pm (afternoon shift). Tasks in the kitchen include help in the preparation of the meal (potatoes and onion peeling and cutting), preparing salads, washing the dishes and keeping the kitchen in good clean condition. The volunteers will coordinate with the kitchen Greek volunteer team and the Chef. The working environment includes all tools to make the work easier, for example a professional dishwasher. Volunteers will alternate in the morning and afternoon shifts. Children Activities: Volunteers will prepare and organize activities during the morning (2 hours) for the children including games, handcrafts, dancing and music (if possible). The team will coordinate with the Greek volunteers responsible for the free-time children activities and will be given everything needed for the implementation of the tasks. Activities will also be based on the skills of the international volunteers, so make sure to inform us of any special and creative skills you might have (like music, dancing or anything else that might be helpful). It’s important to bring your creativity and your own culture to blend it with the rest of the team and with the children. The team responsible for these activities will be the afternoon kitchen shift. Meaning that those volunteers who are going to start working in the kitchen at 5pm they will dedicate two hours in the morning to organise activities with the children. Optional: If you are willing and as part of your own free time, you can also participate in the afternoon sport activities with the kids. Some painting and garden works are to be done. Some optional creative activities will be arranged, depending on your will and disposition. Greek and foreign volunteers are collaborating in many tasks.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

Very basic. The volunteers will sleep in tents equipped with beds, within the camp area as everyone else. The floor of the tent is made of cement, but you will need a warm sleeping bag. There is WC and showers near the tents but no hot water. There is no WiFi and the cell reception for mobile phones is very bad (it might allow for phone calls and messages but internet will be extremely slow). Food: It will be prepared by the Chef of Camp. It will be Greek and traditional. There will be options for vegetarians in the menu but not many. Weather: Usually quite warm at that period (25o–35oC), but during the night it might become a little chilly. Rain is expected at least during few days within the duration of the workcamp. The location is on the feet of a mountain with rich flora (about 400m altitude).

Lage und Freizeit

The Camp is situated at Agios Georgios, on mount Pateras, 33 km to the north-West of Elefsina (or Elefsis) and 55 km from Athens: https://goo.gl/maps/xFnrNViAEH52 It is located several km away from the nearest village, and it is only reachable by car (no bus connections to the camp site). CiA will arrange means of transportation to/from the campsite. Free days Two free days will be arranged during the workcamp. According to the shifts and working demand there might be the chance for some extra free hours but this will not be for the whole group and it will be organised on an individual level.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

For 87 years the organisation “Happy Children Happy Youth” has been supporting children, who face serious problems such as financial (families whose income is at the limit of poverty or lower), family (orphans or children of single-parent families), social (racism and marginalisation) and communication problems (language problems or learning difficulties), because they come from families of immigrants or refugees. The Organisation sets up summer camps which offer free hospitality to 140 children. The constant values surrounding the organisation are love for the children and the people, the certainty about the inherent talents of every individual, equality for all, freedom of speech and thinking, regardless of race, age, sex or religion. The camp schedule is well studied and includes different physical and artistic activities. Living together for 20 days with the 50 trained Greek volunteers, offers to the children some love and care they miss. The organisation believes that summer camps are useful and important for every child. That’s why we try every year to give the possibility of enjoying our hospitality to more children, in improved facilities with more experienced volunteer staff. Nobody at the organisation is allowed to earn money from these activities. Even though the world is becoming more and more impersonal and harsh, especially for the weak (financially and socially) and their children, “Summer Camps Happy Children - Happy Youth” dream to always be able to host as many children as possible while constantly upgrading their facilities and improving their program. Those goals will be made possible thanks to the voluntary effort and knowledge of many people who, with joy, imagination and love, will create small human societies for children and young people that will enable the expression of their skills and feelings. Greek volunteers are working constantly during the winter to organise everything in order to live together this summer experience. For more information you may visit our website (in Greek only): http://www.kataskinosi.gr
