België | Constructie en sociaal
Samen met 7 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 14 dagen naar een constructie en sociaalproject.
Het project duurt van 7 t/m 21 juli.
This project is based on a dynamic meeting between the volunteers and the residents of the centre. Each morning, with the help of technical leader, volunteers, young and older residents will work together to paint rooms of a building. Its’ also planned to have some outdoor tasks like gardening. The afternoon will be dedicated to the organisation of leisure activities with the residents and specially youngsters and kids: sports, crafts, games, treasure hunt, film projection, debate… Feel free to bring your fresh ideas.
Accommodation will be provided in the centre. Volunteers will stay in a common room (dormitory) in a building next to the central one. Showers are accessible in the central building. Meals depend from your cooking talent 😉 There is a private kitchen where you can prepare your meals at fixed hours and you can eat with residents in the refectory.
Sugny is a very small and isolated village in the south of Belgium nearby the French border. By choosing this workcamp, you decide to live in the nature. All around, there are fields, woods and small villages. But there are plenty of opportunities for entertainment: football fields and basketball playgrounds, … During the week-end, and according to the group decisions it will be possible to organise cultural visits and to travel to the biggest Belgian cities.
The Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre hosts people who have asked for asylum in Belgium. Many of them fled from war or persecution. Before these people may start their new lives, their refugee status has to be proven and accepted. While waiting for the documents that will enable them to remain legally in our country, the asylum seekers are accommodated in this centre. 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 Sugny Asylum Seeker Centre reflects these individual dramas and hopefulness of residents. Website (available in English): http://fedasil.be/fr/center/sugny
