The aim of our project is to promote idea of integration into society and culture young people visually impaired. Visual impaired persons will motivate the other participants to believe in themselves, raise their self-esteem, overcome their fears, discriminations, raise their awareness and become more open towards others.
During the project we will organize workshops, activities, show multimedia presentations and arrange events promoting the idea of integration, inclusion, diversity and cultural heritage. All the activities will be designed with care, taking into consideration active participation of the youth, and the need and possibilities of visual impaired persons. After the project, we plan to conduct evaluation of the event as well as to promote our actions in all partner countries.
We plan to use culture as a tool for stimulating participants' creativity, positive thinking and courage to overcome their fears and break down barriers. By using informal methods of teaching, we will encourage the participants to take a deeper look into their inner self, find interests and choose the best method of personal development. Active and diversified ways of spending free time, as well as experiences presented by the experts will be an opportunity for young people to shape their characters.
Our project will also let the young people become more independent. It will also promote the idea of inclusion.
Taking an active part in the project will let all the participants raise their self-esteem and motivate them to work harder.
We have planned many activities that we are going to realize using methods of non-formal education and using English for communication (integration games, themed activities, discussions, evaluations, city game, national and regional evenings, meetings with local community etc.).
The project will be an opportunity for us to gain valuable experience, knowledge, new friendships and attitudes, that will have a positive influence on our future.
