feedback od Nikoly počas svojej EVS:
SKÚŠAM, AKÉ TO JE BYŤ DOBROVOĽNÍK. Doma som na to asi nikdy nemala gule. Nie tak dávno som si aj hovorila, že možno som nemala/nemám ani príležitosť. Vekom a vďaka možnostiam, ktoré sa mi naskytli, sa moje vnímanie mení. V Transparency som mala možnosť okúsiť prácu s dobrovoľníkmi z opačnej pozície. Bolo úžasné vidieť ako ľudia vidia vo vašej práci zmysel a neváhajú obetovať hoci len pár hodín svojho voľného času, aby vám pomohli. Dnes to takto skúšam ja, vďaka Erasmus Plus programu mám šancu do toho dať celú moju kapacitu. Som v cudzom meste, to mi asi dáva gule. Tak som si s kolegom vymyslela ploging (bežíš so sáčkom v ruke a zbieraš odpadky). Perfektne zapadlo, keďže naša organizácia sa fokusuje na šport, a nám sa tu zdá verejný priestor akosi viac znečistený než doma. Naša organizácia sa plne podporila, tak sme sa pustili do roboty. Limitovaní časom, jazykom, nepoznaním miestnych pomerov, ale skúšame. Akurát sme sa vrátili z dvojhodinového rozdávania letáčikov. Zajtra máme deň D, sme zvedaví, či „Du-Ju-Spik-Ingliš-End-Du-ju-Nou-Ploging“ zabralo a bude nás aspoň zo desať. Držte palce!
Official report of the project and its results:
The Bulgarian Sports Development Association has hosted four international volunteers in Bulgaria who have carried out a variety of volunteer activities for the local community in Sofia, Bulgaria for a period of two months. Mobility was 59 days, starting on August 11 and ending October 8, 2018. During this period, volunteers from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia and Portugal had the opportunity to gain experience in organizing sporting events, running sports projects and holding several youth workshops aimed at promoting volunteering. As soon as they arrived in Bulgaria, the volunteers joined the Eurasia Bulgarian Open Badminton Championships 2018 – the biggest international badminton tournament in Bulgaria. It is in the International Series class and has a prize pool of $ 10,000. Top European and world contestants participate as well as Bulgarian stars such as Stoevi sisters, Maria Mitsova, Daniel Nikolov, Ivan Panev, Ivan Rusev, Peyo Boychinov, Petya Nedelcheva and others. The international sporting event held at Badminton Hall Europe and was attended by over 280 contestants from 37 countries.
With the support of the volunteers, two sports celebrations were held in the German and Giggins Monastery, which is a way of innovation for sports activities in ecclesiastical environment, the feedback from the hosts of both events is more than positive.
On September 4 (Tuesday), at 16:00, a voluntary workshop YouthUP, SportUP was held in the Conference Hall of Sandanski Municipality. During the meeting, the international volunteers and experts of the Bulgarian Sports Development Association presented the overall framework of Erasmus+ as well as the opportunities it provides in the field of education, youth and sport, focusing on the opportunities for inclusion of young people people in them. The meeting was attended by young people, chairman of the Sandanski Municipal Council, director and lecturers at the sports school in the city, coaches in various sports.
“Plogging in Sofia” is an initiative promoted by international volunteers in the Bulgarian Sports Development Association, who are interested in supporting good practices for the sustainable environment of Sofia through sport. The aim of this initiative was to reduce the amount of garbage that was located in the area where the National Sports Academy “Vasil Levski” is located and which was home to the international volunteers during their stay in Bulgaria. We believe that together with other citizens of Sofia, we have been able to raise awareness of the implementation of good practices in the care of the community in which we live. We believe that sport alongside volunteering is the best way to work together and create friendships for life. The event was held on 20 September 2018 and was intended to lay the foundations for a new trend in Bulgaria and also to give a start to the upcoming European Sports Week which took place in the Member States of the European Union and 11 non-EU countries in the period 23-30 September 2018.
A few hours before the plogging initiative the volunteers also held a volunteer workshop YouthUP, SportUP at the National Sports Academy “Vasil Levski”, in which more than 40 young people took part in. During the meeting, the overall framework of the Erasmus+ program, as well as the opportunities it provides in the area of education, youth and sport, was presented, focusing on the opportunities for involving young people in them.
On September 28, 2018 at 10:00, the opportunities for young people from 16 to 30 years of age and the implementation of Erasmus volunteer initiatives in the country and abroad were presented at the reading room of the library “Ivan Vazov-1872” in Berkovitsa. The organizer of the event was the Bulgarian Sports Development Association, Sofia, and partners in the initiative were Berkovitsa Municipality, Municipal Club of the Bulgarian Red Cross, Ivan Vazov-1872 Lyceum, Berkovitsa and Health in the Northwest Association. The meeting was attended by more than 40 young people who were able to get information about a European volunteer service from international volunteers who are currently supporting BSDA, all of whom received a certificate of training.
In the last days of their stay, the international volunteers visited the Home for Mentally Disabled People in Banya, Karlovo, where they had sports activities with the residents and introduced them to their history and joined the organization of Babomalt Badminton International – an international badminton tournament in Sofia, where 148 athletes from 34 countries participated.
YouthUP, SportUP project is co-funded under the Erasmus + program, administered in Bulgaria by the Center for Human Resource Development and is realized in 2018.
