Eu am inceput aceasta experienta cu mult entuziasm si dorinta de a invata ceva nou! Experienta din proiect m-a facut sa imi schimb parerea mult despre viata mea, despre ce am, sa apreciez ce conteaza cu adevarat!
Am observat doua lucruri, primul este deschiderea noii generatii de tineri, dorinta de a afla lucruri despre diverse diagnostice, de la ce a pornit si cel mai important lucru , cum pot sa contribuie la o viata mai buna !Al doilea lucru, simtim, face..in concluzie facem ceea ce simtim!
Ce putem face acum? Cum sa fac asta?Sunt cele doua intrebari care au fost puse foarte des.
M-a uimit elanul vital, setea lor de a cunoaste informatii noi si sa le puna imediat in practica cu beneficiarii. Initial erau tematorii voluntarii, nu pentru ca urma sa interactioneze cu persoane cu nevoie speciale ci pentru ca credeau ca cunosc detalii despre ei .Voluntarii au realizat o conexiune puternica cu beneficiarii, din prima clipa, totul a fost spontan,ei s-au adaptat imediat la nevoile lor, au gasit cai de cumunicare nimic nu i-a oprit.
Pentru mine a fost o experienta extraordinara, am avut ocazia sa invat, sa colaborez si sa schimb mintiilor lor

I have started this experience with much enthusiasm and the desire to learn something new! The experience of the project made me feel much better about my life, what I have, and to appreciate what really matters!

I have noticed two things, the first is the opening of the new generation of young people, the desire to learn things about various diagnoses, from what started the most important thing, how can they contribute to a better life! Second, we are human, we feel, we do …in conclusion we do what we feel!

What can we do now? How do I do that? These are the two questions that have been asked very often.

I was amazed by the vital urge, their thirst for knowing new information and putting them into practice immediately with the beneficiaries. Initially, volunteers were fearful, not because they were going to interact with people with special needs, but because they thought they knew nothing about them. The volunteers made a strong connection with the beneficiaries, from the first moment, everything was spontaneous, they immediately adapted to their needs, they found ways of communication and nothing stopped them.

For me it was an extraordinary experience, I had the opportunity to learn, to collaborate and to change my mind and other’s minds.
