The volunteers will take care of the house cleaning and the preparing of meals. The food will be provided by the association according to the needs of volunteers.
The project “Let your voice be heard: Education Voices Society” includes 2 volunteers: one of them will deal with the educational sector, while the other one will be involved in the communication activities. The Daily Centre Pinocchio hosts regularly about 40 children, part of whom belongs to the Roma minority of Panciu. The volunteer involved in the educational sector, alongside the local staff, will prepare and carry out education activities for children (after school, non-formal education, workshops on recycling, games, crafts…) and will also participate in coordination meetings of the association and the educational sector.
The other volunteer will be involved in the communication activities of the association. In close cooperation with the local staff, he/she will give support in designing communication and promotional material (leaflets, posters, etc.), in constantly updating the Association’s website and facebook profile, in organizing events to promote volunteering and active participation, in coordination meetings of the office’s staff and of the association in general.
