Project Title: Changing Together

Message for the world: Together we can do a miracle!

1. Previous experience:

No previous experience.  

2. The Problem: 

One issue in my community that I would like to address is discrimination between children. A high percentage of the children I have met cannot understand that everyone is the same, that they should not marginalize anyone, that they should not behave badly with those who have different skin color or come from a more disadvantaged environment. Discriminated children have great problems integrating and relating to others because they feel different and marginalized, which in long term will lead to important social issues.

3. The Solution: 

I want to organize a workshop where I will explain to the children of my community how bad is to discriminate. I want to encourage the children to feel useful, loved, to make them feel that they are part of a group in which they can express their emotions, ideas, thoughts, even their needs. I will facilitate few games to encourage the children to cooperate and communicate.

4. Beneficiaries:

15 children from Ceplenița School

5. Team:  

I will cooperate with three friends of mine that will help me to present the topic and to facilitate the games.

6. Objective:

My goal is to raise awareness among 15 children from Ceplenița commune about the negative impact of discrimination, by organizing a non-formal educational workshop.

7. Project duration:  

2 month (March - April 2021)
