PART 2: ''Education Volunteering Project'' - European Solidarity Corps

From the start of September until the late of January, our volunteer Stamatis is taking part in the European Solidarity Corps titled '''Education Volunteering Project'', in Lefkosia, Cyprus. The project is  hosted by the NGO ''Politistiko Ergastiri Ayion Omoloyiton'' , in the framework of Erasmus+, under the aegis of the European Commission. Stamatis is able to assist in many activities not only within the school but also within the whole community! 

Below you can read Stamatis' thoughts and experiences throughout this unique ongoing volunteering program! 

 

 

My name is Stamatis and I’m 20 years old.

I’ve always admired people who dared to step out of their comfort zone, in order to contribute to the society. This admiration, combined with my will to stop my daily routine and search for new experiences, are what made me take the decision on a hot September day, to pack up all my stuff and move to Lefkosia, the capital of Cyprus. On this journey, I wasn’t going to be just a visitor, but I would have the opportunity to work voluntarily in a public school as an assistant to the teacher. Immediately, my everyday life was full of children’s voices, smiles and hugs. Through my work in the school, my small friends and I, managed to create a botanical garden, beautiful arts and crafts and theatrical plays. Also, we have visited museums and theaters and we shared all together unforgettable memories and experiences.

At the same time, through my participation on this project, I managed not only to meet and learn about different cultures and places, but also to make new friends. 

I discovered new aspects of myself, which I didn’t know so far and I experienced the value and importance of volunteerism and solidarity.

Last but not least, the greatest benefit from this European Solidarity Corps, is the mental completion that I feel at the end of every day, knowing that I played my part to the advancement of the local society.
