Budaörs is a small town situated in a beautiful environment, at the southern edge of the Buda Hills, its population is about 25000. The city’s commercial district is adjacent to the joint section of motorways M1 and M7, linking the capital with Vienna and the Lake Balaton, respectively, and, for this reason, Budaörs can be called the western gate of its immediate neighbour, Budapest. People can reach our town from the capital via public transport within 30-45 minutes. The town has several museums, churches, schools, a high school, restaurants, medical centre as well. The volunteers will live in an apartment together with other volunteers in Budapest and will be a part of our daily work in the TANODA, she/he will travel with public transportation to Budaörs. The local mentor and staff from the ÖDE office will be an important person that can help them through difficult times. The Foundation Budaörsi Tanoda opened in 1998. It offers an after-school programme for 100 students during the school year. The pupils are from 7-18 years old and they come to us if the have some learning difficulties in their regular school in Budaörs. We employ professional staff, teachers, social workers and have regular consultation with other professionals like psychologists and professional artists. Our mission is to help children to get a better school degree and through this they will have greater opportunities. We believe that though our we empower Roma and minorities in order to become active citizens of their societies and stimulate the majorities to actively participate in the social inclusion process. We act towards strengthening the commitment and responsibility sharing of both, majority populations and minorities in building up open societies. Our children stay at the Tanoda from Monday to Friday and participate in classes under the supervision of teachers, different activities, and cultural events, like learning folk dances and songs. The volunteer will assist in both tasks, during classes and during cultural activities.
PROPOSED ACTIVITIES FOR THE VOLUNTEERS
We can offer a lot of different learning opportunities as a member of an experienced, dynamic and skilled staff environment, through cultural integration in after-school programme. We offer not only to be part of our programme and support children but learn about the situation of the Roma minorities in Hungary. We are actively involved social actions in this region. In actions in this area include awareness raising with Roma parents and local schools, and active participation in co-ordination mechanisms. The results have been good so far and hundreds of Roma children are successfully schooled and getting better notes though the help of our Tanoda. Also a more positive attitude of schools and teaching staff has been achieved.
ROLE OF THE EVS VOLUNTEER
Through the volunteers we hope to get valuable input and support in the work. Volunteers will support children in learning, home work, but also in Roma and Hungarian folk music, outdoor activities and a variety of cultural activities. The volunteers will bring new ideas and initiatives as regards the youth and child work in the town. Hopefully the presence of volunteers will also motivate youth from Budaörs in participating in EVS, thus expanding their horizons. Having international young people here will also increase the knowledge and understanding of other countries and cultures among Roma and Hungarian as well. We wish that the volunteers to gain knowledge about the Roma and Hungarian culture, language and gain experience in youth and child work. The EVS volunteers could be involved in the following activities and tasks: – teaching English, and other languages. – teaching computer skills, photo, music, sports, play music with children in a Roma Folk band. – practical work, helping staff in the building. – other cultural activities for the foundation, organising and taking care of cultural events. – arranging activities for the students like games, music activities, social gatherings. – helping children in summer camps. In all areas of the activities intercultural dialog will be an important aspect and maybe the most important learning opportunity.
