Asociatia de Tineret ONESTIN – Romania
During the time we discovered that in our society a lot of people (especially young people) are discriminated, are not involved in a lot of activities and are not treaten as equals. Seeing that in our NGO there are a lot of attitudes and feelings toward different kind of people (people with different sexual orientations, from different families, with different financial situations and the list can go on), we decided to organise activities that can combate this, so we signed a partnership with a reeducation school close to our city (The Reeducation School from Tg-Ocna). Here, our volunteers go twice a month and make workshops, games and discuss with youngsters from different backgrounds, with different sexual orientations and concepts of life. We find this activity very beneficial as both our volunteers and youngsters from the reeducation school learn something. Our volunteers learn to tolerate people discriminated by contemporary society, learn new stories from life, learn how lucky they are that they have a family and go to a good school and the youngsters from the reeducation center learn that they can have equal changes when they come back in the society, discover how important is to finish their studies and to continue with the personal and professional development.
