Olga Shebanova, a participant of the Enter! Long term training course conduced a set of workshops in her organisation Clovek v Ohrozeni (People in Need). Olga explains that during the initial seminar of the Enter! LTTC held in the European Youth Centre Budapest she was “inspired by Enter! Recommendation and strongly felt that the colleagues need to see that and apply into their daily practice.”
In Clovek v Ohrozeni, the organization which works on humanitarian crisis response, all around the world, Olga is working on social integration of Roma communities and improving the access to rights for young Roma people. Every day 8 volunteers and 15 staff members from the organisation raising awareness about the discrimination against Roma. In this work, the Enter! Recommendation is a perfect guide that promotes different social rights and can easily be used.
Part of the presentations, the workshops also used different activities from Compass which helped the staff and volunteers of the organisation to experience and understand better the issue. In this way Olga’s colleagues could understand why it is difficult sometimes to fight with social exclusion and discrimination, and how they can make a change. The participants were motivated and inspired.
The volunteers will already present the Enter! Recommendation and the European Social Charter during a big festival organized by them in August. The festival will be educating the society about diversity and anti-discrimination behaviour and will involve local authorities.
