Dette projekt tilbydes i samarbejde med AFS Brasilien og nedenfor kan du læse deres beskrivelse af projektet:

Solidarity in our culture is a big value. We are always ready to help our family, friends and neighbors. Also, our country is open to new cultures and Brazilians are specialists in welcoming people from all over the world. If you share the feeling of solidarity, you will feel like at home in Brazil.

As a volunteer, you will support a local school for children aged 3-6 years old, dedicated to providing a safe and secure environment for learning, play and social interaction within the local community.

The institution helps around 100 children daily either after or before their school time. During their stay at the institution, they receive balanced food and participate of several different workshops such as pedagogical support, music, dance, physical education, violin, flute, percussion, arts & crafts, theater, and dental help.

The volunteer will assist the instructor (teacher) with music classes, sports activities and language workshops.

Find the testimony of the German volunteer from this program, Ena :

“I am going to tell you something about my work in the kindergarten now. I have worked there for two months now. In the beginning, it was kind of hard for me because I don’t speak Portuguese very well and couldn’t understand the instructions of the other teachers but now I do. I work 6 hours a day from 9 am to 3 pm, but it depends on how much work we have. The boss is very flexible with working hours. My main tasks are to care for the children. This includes playing with them, brushing their teeth, changing clothes, going to the bathroom with them and giving them water and food. The children are 3 to 6 years old and there are 140 kids in the school. I also eat lunch at work for free every day. I really enjoy the work and it’s definitely not a hard job, because sometimes you just play with the kids. It’s also important to know that the kids there are very poor. 
I hope you like to join the team. It’s very fun! Best regards, 
Ena”

About this type of community service project: 

When you choose an individual community service project, you commit yourself to getting to know the culture of the country where you are going to. Your work will take considerable time, but you will also have lots of time to explore the area around you, to meet with the locals, and get a deep sense of their values and way of living. Through being a volunteer abroad, you are allowing yourself to truly integrate, become a part of the local community and get a daily life that is very similar to the one of the local people around you.

 

When it comes to your area of volunteer work, there is a lot of possibilities to choose from. The description you read on our website is usually just an example, and rarely are two projects exactly the same. AFS is a big network with a lot of connections to schools, kindergartens, NGO’s. It is not one specific school or a kindergarten that AFS Colombia cooperates with, but rather many possibilities, and in fact all around the country. We are happy to receive your preferences, but we can also help you find the right placement, if you are not quite certain what you would like to work with, or where in the country you would like to live.

 

Your host family is one of the closest people you will have while on programme – they will be your family, they might take you to Sunday lunches with the grandmother, but also ask you to clean and cook, as they do. They might want to show you around their country and take you on trips, and they might also want you to come back home by 10 pm, if they ask the same of their children. You should expect that every host family is different and has their own rules and way of living. You can look forward to getting an intimate insight into a life, that might be so completely different from yours.

 

Besides from your host family, you will have a local contact person, who will be your support with anything that you would need, from practical questions and needs, to cultural tips and advice.

 

On this programme, you should expect to be surrounded by the locals, be that your host family, the collegues at your work or local contact person. During your stay, you might meet other international volunteers from time to time, but they might live in completely different cities.
