David from Canary Islands in ADEL


David came to our organisation for 6 months thanks to Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs program. Who is him and why did he decided for such a project?

“I am David, I studied psychology in the small Canary Islands where I was raised and born. Since a child I always wanted to discover what was behind that big sea and life brought me to the point where I could start discovering the world, all I need is a guitar and a good book in order to feel at home. I have been working for big companies like Disney or Zara and for small ones but very unique like We road and Contactel.

All my experiences has been always with public speaking and leading the situation, which I love. I did my Erasmus Volunteer Service in Latvia where I was teacher guitar and Spanish to kids and teenagers. After a few months I realized that organizing events was one of the things I like the most so I started to organize trip for students and I was lucky enough to participate in them as well. Step by step I was opening myself to the Erasmus world and the huge network, that’s why I wanted to create my own NGO after participating in 28 projects (ToT, YE, TC…).

The skills that I’ve developed all this years made had a dream about a travel agency and that brought me to Bratislava. Thanks to Lenka and her amazing organization, I was able to get accepted the project from Erasmus in order to start my own company and starting an organization with her. I never expected to feel very motivated for just an idea untill Erasmus and Adel made them possible.”

In addition, 17 volunteers had the opportunity to spend several months in 7 countries (Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, Slovenia, Romania, Turkey, Latvia).
We have managed to successfully complete many long-term projects, which we have been working on throughout the year:

Wave On Wave – Seafaring heritage and sports for young people’s physical activity” – a project aimed at promoting water sports among children. We carried out a survey, a camp for children, local activities, etc.

and tools to combat racism, discrimination, prejudice against minorities and refugees.

disadvantaged backgrounds in cooperation with organizations from countries – Brazil, Uruguay, Costa Rica.

Winter Sport is Coming” – within which we will organize camps for Slovaks and foreigners living in Slovakia and so through winter sports try to connect
these groups and build more open and tolerant views of young people towards foreigners.

Good Governance in Sport” – the project focuses on the analysis of transparency of sports institutions.
