THE EUROPEAN VOLUNTARY SERVICE IN ZAVIDOVICI AGAIN

07 Feb 2013

The European Voluntary Service (EVS) is a platform by European Commision that provides young Europeans, aged 18 to 30, with the unique chance to express their personal commitment through unpaid and full-time voluntary activities in a foreign country within or outside the EU. In this way, it seeks to develop solidarity, mutual understanding and tolerance among young people, contributing to reinforcing social cohesion in the European Union and beyond, and to promoting young people's active citizenship.

The Association of Local Democracy Embassy (ALD) Zavidovici is accredited as a sending and hosting organisation in EVS system.

After the first EVS experience in Zavidovici, when the ALD Zavidovici had the opportunity to host two volunteers in the period of two months during 2012, the European Voluntary Service is active in Zavidovici again in 2013.

This time, four volunteers from Turkey are gaining their experience in Zavidovici, as a part of two different Youth in Actin projects - Büşra Nur and Fatma with the project  „Different Visions“, and Osman and Ozan Faruk, with the project  „The City of Well Being“.

Here is a short introduction from the four of them:

  • My name is Büşra Nur. I come from Turkey. I was born in İstanbul in 1993. I live in İstanbul. I am a student at Marmara Universtiy in second class. My department is Economics.

Before I came to Zavidovici, i went to Augsburg/Germany with Leonardo Da Vinci Project. In Turkey I am a member of System&Generation Association.

EUROPSKI VOLONTERSKI SERVIS PONOVO U ZAVIDOVIĆIMA

Europski volonterski servis (EVS) je platforma kreirana od strane Europske komisije, koja mladima iz Europe, od 18 do 30 godina, daje jedinstvenu priliku da izraze svoja lična opredjeljenja putem volonterskih aktivnosti u punom radnom vremenu u nekoj od stranih zemalja, u ili izvan EU. Na ovaj način teži se ka razvoju solidarnosti, međusobnog razumjevanja među mladim ljudima, i doprinosi razvoju socijalne kohezije u EU i šire, te promovisanju aktivnog građanstva kod mladih ljudi.   

Ambasada lokalne demokratije (ALD) Zavidovići je akreditovana kao organizacija koja može slati i primati volontere u EVS sistemu.

Nakon prvog EVS iskustva u Zavidovićima, kada je ALD Zavidovići imala priliku da ugosti dvije volonterke na period od 2 mjeseca, u toko 2012. godine, Europski volonterski servis je u 2013.godini ponovo aktivan u Zavidovićima.

Ovaj put, svoj voloterski staž u Zavidovićima odrađuje četvero volontera i volonterki iz Turske, a u okviru dva različita Youth in Action projekta - Büşra Nur i Fatma u okviru projekta „Different Visions“, te Osman i Ozan Faruk, u okviru projekta „The City of Well Being“.

Evo kratkog predstavljanja svakog od četiri volontera i volonterke:

  • Moje me je Büşra Nur. Dolazim iz Turske. Rođena sam u Istanbulu 1993.godine. studiram na Marmara Univerzitetu, na drugoj godini, na odjeljenju Ekonomija. Živim sa roditeljima u Istanbulu. Moja želja je da u budućnosti postanem ekspert u ekonomiji, ili da predajem na univerzitetu.
  • Moje ime je Fatma. Rođena sam 1989.godine. Živim u Ankari, u Turskoj. Završila sam TOBB Univerzitet u Septembru, na odjeljenju Međunarodnih odnosa. Prije nego što sam došla u Zavidoviće,  bila sam u Augsburgu u Njemačkoj u slopu Leonardo Da Vinci projekta. U Turskoj sam također član System&Generation asocijacije, i volonter u  TEGV-  fondaciji za volontersku edukaciju Turske. Volonterizam u ovakvim projektima je za mene veoma važan, zbog mog ličnog razvoja i napretka. Poboljšala sam svoje znanje engleskog jezika otkako se time bavim. Učim o različitim kulturama, razne jezike (bosanski). Posmatram i historijsku pozadinu zemlje u kojoj se nalazim, te na blji način mogu analizirati sličnosti i razlike između Bosne i Turske. Eto, to sam ja J

Svrha mog učešća u ovom projektu je da učim nove jezike i upoznajem nove kulture i ljude.
  • Ja sam Ozan Faruk. Rođen sam 1992.godine. Sada studiram na Anadolu Univerzitetu, na odjeljenju Međunarodni odnosi. Prije ovog projekta, bio sam u Njemačkoj, Holandiji i Francuskoj na putovanjima.
