Solidarity in the 21st century
European Solidarity Corps

The ESC volunteer project "Solidarity in the 21st century", initiated by VitaTiim NGO, aims to increase local community awareness of solidarity and make practical actions to implement solidarity activities in the society of Ida-Virumaa region.
The aim will be achieved through the implementation of volunteering activities by 10 young volunteers (18-30 years old) from Hungary, Germany, Spain, Georgia, France, Ukraine, Austria, Italy during 8-12 months (01.09.2019 to 30.08.2021) in 9 Receiving Organisations in Narva and Kohtla-Jarve towns.

General Objectives of project:
- to offer an inspiring and empowering experience in Ida-Virumaa for 10 young people from different countries;
- to support 9 local host organisations in starting their work in European Solidarity Corps and providing a respectful and trusting hosting environment for international volunteers;
- to provide an intercultural learning environment in the local community for the duration of the project.

The additional tasks supporting the project objectives are:

T1: to do on-arrival training by the coordinating organisation VitaTiim, during which the volunteers will have workshops related to the meaning of solidarity and its realisation in their working places. This will be the first step to accumulate all activities which can be implemented to increase solidarity.

T2: to create and implement volunteers' own mini-projects related to solidarity. The main idea of the mini-projects will be that volunteers should show their understanding of solidarity in a practical way.

T3: to create a video to increase visualised understanding of solidarity from the view of future volunteers.

T4: to increase solidarity in the Ida-Virumaa region we with our volunteers will arrange different kinds of activities during the project time. Activities will include live libraries, culture evenings, social responsibility related activities and other solidarity based workshops.
