Volunteer work

Gighera is not a very rich community but surely it is a multi-cultural one . A lot of Gighera’s youngsters choose to leave their birthplaces and work in countries like Spain and Italy up to two or three years. Most of them return home and encourage this migration phenomenon.  The people here are used to deal with foreigners and most of them can fluently speak Italian or Spanish .
The only institutions that  deliver educational services for children are the schools. There is no active NGO in the community and the main institution responsible for providing cultural activities ,the Cultural House , is in a process of rebuilding that should be ended next year ,so , at least for now , is also inactive.
The community has 3 primary schools and 3 kindergartens but the education provided here,like in most of Romanian villages , is based on a traditional ,formal-based ,old  process
 The volunteers could work on:

  • Developing a program of extracurricular activities on subjects that concern the youngsters the most: environment; sports; art&culture; health education,etc
  • Language classes – to improve the English level of the children from the community
  • Intercultural activities like organizing intercultural evenings
  • Organizing social campaigns to help the disadvantaged children and to give more visibility to the schools outside it’s area
To organize campaigns to inform on the opportunities that the European programs bring to the  youngsters in terms of education
