It’s already second month! In the same way as the first month it is full of many wonderful moments. Last year I decided to venture myself to have a new adventure and I wanted to do something more with my life, in this case to do volunteering through European Voluntary Service for one year in Norway. What motivated me to do EVS was the chance to take part in a project concerned with social inclusion. I wanted to change environment, my work, to travel, to meet new people with new culture and to be involved in a long term social project.  I thought this was the best option to do something special for a year and open my mind while doing something good for the others. It’s a really intense and unique experience that gives you the chance to discover so many things you will never discover other way. It’s a great chance to do something for the world, help people, grow up and meet some good friends worldwide. It’s a great experience and although it’s totally worth it, there will be tough moments, as well. I If I had the chance again after I will finish my project, I’d always do it again.

  • ON – ARRIVAL SEMINAR

  • PROJECT – DALE I SUNNFJORD

My tasks are to work in kindergarten with children, in school, swimming pool and the main task is to work with disabled people in Vevang Center. I studied about psychology and that’s why I always try to integrate my psychological knowledge with arts. I try to do something with creativity and easy for them.  There are too many reasons why I decided to work with creativity and to learn by playing. How they feel throughout the day greatly impacts at their creativity and this is very important because they can remove all negative feelings from themselves. And why games? Because games generally involve mental or physical stimulation, and often both. Many games help develop practical skills, serve as a form of exercise, or otherwise perform an educationalsimulation, or psychological role. Below you can find some of our work in Norway.

  • Vevang Center – Disabled people (older people)

 There are too many activities, painting, dancing, playing different games etc. We decorate the bags and sell them. Inside of bags there are materials that help to ignite the fire for Kitchener. And you can see how they look and how we decorate together.

Once per month we do another activity that’s called “Diskotek”, disabled people are invited to come, having fun, to do something different and to enjoy their time.

All the best,

Vlorika
