In September, a workshop organized by ATD Fourth World will bring together in Plovdiv about 40 activists from Bulgaria, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, France, and Belgium. The three-day event is called "Inclusive Education for EVERYONE: Sharing experiences on reaching out to the most deprived".
The participants come from different walks of life, some of them work in teams, some act individually, others contribute to education in their community or neighborhood. What all of them share is a common vision for reaching out to people living in extreme poverty and searching for solutions to include them in society.
The workshop aims to allow everyone to exchange ideas and good practices, and to feel support for their efforts.
What will I do?
Volunteers are needed to interpret from French and from Romanian during the workshops, discussions and presentations.
- You may interpret into English or into Bulgarian.
- Both simultaneous and consecutive interpretation will be needed.
The workshop is from 5 to 7 September, Thursday to Saturday, from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm. You can volunteer for the whole period or just for one day.
